Agency won't verify debt
by: Mary

Thanks for submitting your debt collection question on our Q&A page.

The debt collection agency that has contacted you is legally obligated to provide you with written information verifying the debt it wants you to pay if you ask for that information within 30 days of receiving an initial collection notice from the collector. There is nothing in the law that requires you to provide an agency with your bank account information first (or at any time) and as you obviously recognize, sharing that information with a debt collector is a very bad idea.

Given the problems you are having with Global Credit, I strongly encourage you to figure out your best course of action by contacting a consumer law attorney in your area. Find out how to get FREE or low cost legal advice about debt collection from a consumer law attorney here. You may have a legal case against the collection agency.

Please share what happens with your situation in the comments section for this question. We are very interested in hearing how this turns out for you, and your experience can help others who are struggling with debt collectors.
