What is a debt validation request?

by admin

A debt validation letter is simply a letter you can send to a presumed creditor (or debt collection company) requiring them to show proof that they either own the debt in question, or are otherwise legally authorized to collect on the debt. If you owe a debt, under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), you have the right to require that collection companies validate that debt before you proceed to pay.
