Reply from DebtCollectionAnswers.com:

It probably makes sense for you to consult with a consumer law attorney at this point. Collection agencies are required by law to send written notice within 5 business days of initially contacting you about a debt. It's not optional. And this debt my be out of the statute of limitations anyway.

If you think the debt collector has broken the law, you can contact a local consumer law attorney with experience in debt collection cases, or call the Collection Complaint Hotline at 888-711-5183 for a free, confidential case evaluation.
