I have a lot of experience in this area and I would be happy to help you. You need an attorney to deal with these people because they will not listen to you. The first thing is they must show proof that you actually owe a debt. They cannot come after you if you do not actually owe anything. Sometimes these debt collectors will do this in an attempt to get you to pay money you don't actually owe. My fee is $50 an hour and I do payment plans with many of my clients.
Feel free to contact me, free of charge, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 330-447-7634. I am happy to help in anyway that I can.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
