RE: Mr. I. M. Scrood Collection Matter
Your File 1040
Our File 099.0002
Dear Mr. Todd:
I represent Mr. I. M. Scrood in the above captioned matter. Specifically, I represent Mr. Scrood in matters relating to your attempt to collect allegedly past due amounts which I believe originate from Mr. Scrood’s dealings with the Invention Extortion Corporation.
1. Please do not contact Mr. Scrood any further regarding this matter, in any form, including by telephone, letter, or in person, as now required under 15 U.S.C.§ 1692(c). Direct all future correspondence to me at the address above as now required under 15 U.S.C. § 1692(b)(6).
2. In accordance with 15 U.S.C. § 1692(g), please send me notice of the amount allegedly owed, and the name and address of the current creditor.
3. Please note that the dealings of the Invention Extortion Corporation with Mr. Scrood violate Minnesota Statute Section 325A.01 et seq. This includes several aspects of the contract. Under Minnesota Statue 325A.09 (subd. 2), for this reason, any such contract “shall be unenforceable against the customer as contrary to public policy….”
5. Please feel free to forward this letter to the appropriate person at the creditor, so that we may discuss the return of Mr. Scrood’s payments (estimated at almost $4,000), and avoid any civil action.
