A: This is something that a collections defense attorney should advise on, but you await a response for two weeks. If you haven't already replied, it could be worth consulting with an experienced attorney on those questions. Those responses are important and could be fact-specific, depending on your situation and the details of the collection action. They could range from statute of limitations to misrepresentation to fraud - depending on the matter. Good luck
