United Online Collections Division / Possible Fraud

I received a notice in the mail for a past due amount of $ 14.90 to a company that I have never heard of. I tried calling the number on the notice and was only instructed to put my requests in writing, there was no option to speak to a representative. In addtion, the email address that I was given appears to be the letter of my last name, my middle initial then my first name, I sent an email with no response.

I checked the internet and there appears to be others with the same complaints or concerns about the validity of the charges.

Please inform me if this is infact a fraudulent collections company. Thank You!

    I received a notice from United Online Collections Division stating I owe $19.90 to NetZero which is bogus along with everyone else's complaint. I have typed up my letter of dispute and plan on mailing it. I too find it very odd and wrong that we can not talk to a representative. My family owned a collections company for many years, and we are entitled to speak to a rep in order to relay a verbal dispute as well. This practice from United Collections is unethical and completely against the laws of FDCPA.

    I have had the same experience as everyone else. I have reported the collections agency to the FTC and contacted the Identity Theft Resource Center (1-888 400 5530) who have advised me about how to check my credit reports, and what to do if something does not look right. It's a pain but I suggest you all do the same or similar. If you have any other suggestions, I'd be glad to hear.
