What Should I Do if Contacted by Second Round, LP
If you receive a letter or a phone call from Second Round, LP, it’s very important to ask the company for your debt to be validated. This is a process you are legally entitled to do according to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA. Under the FDCPA, all debt collection agencies are required to follow the same rules and procedures to protect consumers from unfair harassment.
All consumers are entitled to dispute a debt when an agency tries to collect. The FDCPA also stipulates that you should receive verification of your debt from the debt collection agency in the form of an official letter. Known as debt validation or debt verification, this letter will outline:
- What the debt is/where it’s from
- How much you owe
- Any other information you need to know
