The alleged debt is over 14 years old. The letter, and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, says I have 30 days to dispute the debt or they will assume it is valid.

I bought a car from a private party. The seller stated there were cosmetic issues but the car ran well. During the title signing, we found that it was a salvaged title, but the seller said there were no issues with the car. After everything was signed and we had possession of the car, we found...
