Should I pay that collection account..?


Not yet...not without getting all of the information that you need to make an informed decision.

For years, I have advised people against paying third party debt collectors...This ruling demonstrates exactly why.

Before you pay anything to a 3rd party debt collector you need to check the legitimacy of their claim. Ask for validation or verification of what they are trying to collect.

Check your records.

Check the statute of limitations and the obsolescence periods.

Don't be intimidated or bullied in to making a payment on something that you have no knowledge of or are unsure of the facts.

Remember, their job is to get you to change your priorities and get money from you often by using scare tactics. Your job is to protect your hard earned money.
