What Do You Do If a Creditor Contacts You?

If a creditor contacts you, you should write them a letter stating that you are uncollectible and they cannot take anything from you. Below is a sample letter:


[Name of Collection Agency]


[Your Name]

[Your Account # with that Creditor]

Dear Agency,

I am writing to request that you stop contacting me about my account number __________________ with [name of creditor] as required by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act 15 U.S.C. section 1692(c).

All of the property that I own is exempt from collection. My only source(s) of income are __________, which are not subjected to garnishment. Also, my bank accounts cannot be attached because the only money that goes into them is the income listed above.

This letter is not meant in any way to be an acknowledgement that I owe this money. I will take care of this matter when I can. Your cooperation will be appreciated.

Very truly yours,

[Your Name]

[Your Address]
