Quantum continuously refused to provide written verification and said that I would have to take their word for it '' that they are the company that was contracted by - - to collect the debt in question. According to the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, this information must be provided before a debt can be collected. With the threat of this debt being reported

Monday, - - I spoke to - explaining my dilemma. - stated that an account ledger was faxed. However, the account ledger is not the written notice that validates the debt nor does it provide proof that Quantum was contracted to takeover said debt -. - stated that the debt had been reported on my credit as of Sunday, - - despite her confirmation that their office received my credit card authorization beforehand. A date that I found to be peculiar considering that their business is closed at the time. - refused to resend the documents and without a proper explanation. I again offered to pay the debt with a debit card over the phone, but - stated that they would have to charge a $12.00 fee and that would not guarantee deletion of it from my credit. She added that the only way Quantum would remove it from my credit is by paying via check by phone and with an additional fee of $40.00. However, she would not send a letter of deletion and that I would have to take her word for it. '' After pleading my case regarding why this letter of verification was imperative due to dealing with previous credit card fraud issues and that I would gladly make the payment once this information was provided, - declined my request. After bringing up the FDCPA, she hung up on me. I do not think that was fair given the circumstancesAccording to the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, unfair practices cited by the law include tacking interest, fees or charges or expenses on to the principal debt owed by the consumer. '' Although a credit card authorization form was provided with the payment information, Quantum Collections still attempted to charge interest as additional fees up to, and including, a $40.00 processing fee '' on top of the debt in question. As it currently stands, I am willing to make the payment to clear the debt provided that Quantum Collections can deliver a letter of deletion. After all that they have done, I believe that this is a fair request as I have only tried to protect myself and my rights as a consumer.
