Admission Letter / December 10, 2018 / Gina Pennington
I ve seen it many times. He or she will attach an affidavit form to the request implying that your responses must be under oath. In my view this is an unfair debt collection practice under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Requests for Admission are not made under oath. To imply that they are is an attempt to intimidate a party into making admissions. Or to add to the general stress and difficulty of responding at all with the increased probability of a failure to respond at all. I believe that people receiving this sort of requests for admissions should strongly consider amending their answer to include a counterclaim under the FDCPA.
Over the years I have written letters for business associates. However my favorites to write are for young students who are applying for colleges scholarships or their first job. These are personal reference letters and I love getting the chance to sit with these young adults and talk about their futures and aspirations. These conversations help me in writing letters that are relevant meaningful and honest. As a result I have become the first stop for many of my four children s friends who are in need of a letter of recommendation. A letter of recommendation should be one of the easiest pieces of correspondence to compose.
What Requests for Admissions Are Requests for admission are very simply a request to the other side to admit certain things. You must respond within a specified time period usually thirty days but check your Rules of Civil Procedure or they are considered admitted. If the debt collectors send you a set you will notice that they request you to admit every single aspect of the case against you. They re hoping you will forget to respond. If you do fail to respond they ll file a motion for summary judgment and try to get the whole case decided on that basis. A Dirty Trick Debt Collectors Sometimes Play That would be pretty easy for them and to try to make it more likely the lawyer for the debt collector may very well pull a trick to try to intimidate you.
