Paid off large sum of money to a utility company who never shut off utilities as requested when I moved. 6 months later in another state I see a 1300 entry on my 3 cb reports. I paid the stupid thing after trying to dispute it as fraudulent. Now they have sold the stupid thing to another company. Good news is the AG in Pa. has taken on this case. My ? is can anyone recollect this debt with the PAID IN FULL letter in my possession? Have sent the 30 day validation notice to the new collection agency containing the copy of PIF letter. They have 5 days to validate this debt. If they don't validate it what do I do next?

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff 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.
