Once the case has been filed, the automatic stay of 11 U.S.C. sec. 362 will be in full force and effect. Under that Federal Statute, you may not:

(1) take any action against the debtor(s) or the debtor(s) property to collect any debt.
(2) enforce any lien on debtor(s) real or personal property.
(3) repossess any property in the debtor's possession.
(4) discontinue any service or benefit currently being provided to the debtor(s) by you.
(5) take any action to evict the debtor(s) from his/her residential dwelling.

This is only a partial list of prohibited activities. You are directed to review the statute yourself or to contact your own independant counsel for further clarification.

The case has not yet been filed, but soon will be. In the interim, the debtor invokes the protections available under the provisions of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act - 15 U.S.C. sec. 1692 et seq., as well as any and all Consumer Protection Statutes for the State of (state).

You are hereby directed to cease and desist any and all collection activity against the debtors listed above. You will refer any and all collection calls to my office at the number listed above. My office will not release any information to you with the exception of whether or not the case has been filed and to advise you that any direct contact with the debtor(s) will be treated as direct and willful violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

Further, the debt demands that you validate the debt to determine (1) if the debt is actually a debt incurred by the debtor, (2) to confirm that the debt has not already been paid, and (3) verify that you are authorized to collect the debt in question. If you are a third party debt buyer who is not the original creditor, then we also require the name of the original creditor. In addition to knowing that the debtor is now represented, you must also cease and desist all collection activity while you are validating the debt in question.

If you take any further action against the debtor or fail to comply with the terms outlined in this letter as defined by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, my client has authorized me to pursue any and all available remedies, including, but not limited to, filing an adversary proceeding in the United States Bankruptcy Court, and/or the United States Federal District Court, filing a complaint with the States Attorney General, and filing a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.

Please do not contact my office for advice about what to do with this letter. Contact your own learned counsel so that you may receive the best advice possible and proceed accordingly.

Upon the filing of the bankruptcy case, you will receive a notice of bankruptcy filing at this address as well as directions on how to file a proof of claim, if one is needed.

If you would like to receive electronic updates about the debtor's bankruptcy filing, we recommend you sign up for electronic noticing through the National Creditor Registration Service. You can find out more about receiving electronic notices at ebn.uscourts.gov.

Thank you for your time and consideration. Our office looks forward to working with you as well as our client as they initiate the bankruptcy process.

Sincerely,

Account Number: XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX
Debtors Last Four of their SSN: XXXX
Balance Owed: $XXX.XX
