ago that was sold to a different company that now using a third party collector that sent a collections letter can id dispute based on sol or no?
A: You might be able to claim an FDCPA violation as well. A good attorney should be able to give you a hand at little to no cost to you.

You have certain rights to stop the collector but you must first take the appropriate steps.
