Cease and Desist letter to a collection agency

I am writing a cease and desist letter to a collection agency. I just want them to stop calling DH's cell phone. I plan to ask them to send all communication in writing.

Here's my question. They have a few different medical bills. Do I need to include every single account number? I don't want them to call DH's cell phone at any time for any account, can I just tell them to never call that number for any account or do I have to list each account in the letter?

Subbing. I have been hassled by agencies erroneously because someone with shady credit used our number as a fake number. I'm curious as to how.to.go about writing a letter.

My guess you would.have to list them all.

Have you checked out the Credit Report Help thread here? It may have the answer if you can search the thread.

I was hoping a letter would just stop the calls. They just randomly call and ask for Jenny. It hasn't affected anything other than being disturbed occasionally. I'll look at the thread. Thank.you

I wish it were that easy. They seem to pass these collections cases from company to company. So it will stop for a while and then resume with a new company. Each time I have to make calls to make them update. A format letter seems easier than trying to get them to transfer me to a manager.

Re: Cease and Desist letter to a collection agency

I worked collections for many years. You will need to include EVERY single account number, AND specify that they should not call that number AT ANY TIME. If you put even the tiniest word wrong, the collections company will exploit that loop hole (as in "stop calling" they could take that to mean "stop calling during business hours")
