Legal Question in Credit and Debt Law in Wisconsin

I recently received a summons from a junk debt buyer for a debt that i believe to be invalid. Checking my credit report there is an original record of the debt as a personal loan (which i never had) but the summons states the debt is for a charge account. Is this a violation of the FDCPA and the FCRA?

Either term might be an accurate description of this obligation, so I doubt that you will get much relief under FDCPA or related laws. However, if you are having problems with collectors, you owe it to yourself to immediately consult with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer. Bankruptcy offers legal forgiveness of most general unsecured debts of this nature.
