Dear ______________________:

This will serve as your legal notice pursuant to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1692, to cease and desist all further communication with me in regard to the above referenced debt or debts.

I have decided that I do not want to work with your collection agency or any other collection agency under any circumstances. I will contact the original creditor directly in order to resolve this matter. By sending this letter it is my intention to stop all your calls and collection activity from this day forth.

I also reserve the right to file suit against you for any future violations of this law. Please give this very important matter the utmost attention.
