I have used the following process and I never heard from the collection
Immediately write a letter to the collection agency DEMANDING
Validation (NOT verification) of the alleged debt. They can never
validate the debt so they pass over you and go on to the next sucker who
doesn't know how to respond. It's important to send the letter within 30
days (that's generally the time frame they give you). It wouldn't hurt
to send it "certified mail" either.
