Steven Lamb and Capital One


Recommended Posts

Ok I received a letter  from his law firm that if I don't  settle or respond and set up payments in 30 days I can be sued and will be responsible  for my debt of $2020 not sure of exact  amount  not at home plus legal fees.  I need help with next  step. I do remember  reading it is against federal law to use a threat of law suit to attempt to retrieve payment.

@AnnArk

They did not threaten to sue.  It says "may file a lawsuit against you."    It did not say they "will" file a lawsuit.

If you choose, you can go ahead and send a letter stating that you dispute the debt and request validation from the attorney.

Yes I noticed  as I took more time a reread it slower.

So what does a letter  need to say and is there an example  letter I could see.

All you need to send is something simple, such as:

Your Name

Address

City, State

If this is your account, do you know when you made the last payment?
