There is essentially a 30 day time period required by law for the consumer to either dispute or validate the alleged debt, and the complainant was not awarded this time because he/she never received a letter acknowledging the debt. The complainant is aware that, “According to the Fair Credit Reporting Act, Section 609 (a)(1)(A), the collections business is required by federal law to verify – through the physical verification of the original signed consumer contract – any and all accounts posted on a credit report”. The complainant also explains that, “AcctCorp of Southern Nevada is also attempting to collect twice for the same business and account using different business names”.
