I have received a notice from a collection agency on a medical bill from about two years ago. I do not dispute I owe it but I do think the amount is about $20 than the last statement I received from the doctor. I have looked at some of the sample debt verification letters but they seem pretty "tough" for lack of a better wordin that I am not disputing that I do owe it but I want to verify the amount. Does anyone have a sample of a letter to ask them to verify the amount? Is this the appropriate letter to send? I have until August 1 to reply. Thanks.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the pay off amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
