Accounts being represented by attorneys
I have an attorney contacting me on behalf of a creditor. Does this mean the account has been sold to them? The notification states, it is an attempt to collect a debt.

Odds are that it is a scare tactic, probably not even a real attorney. Debt collectors pull all kinds of tricks trying to scare people into paying. I advise that you keep all paperwork, messages, etc. from this company. Do not contact them. Read the FDCPA (fair debt collection practices act), odds are, they are violating it and you could sue them if this is the case. Many FDCPA law firms will not charge you for a consultation and usually have not out of pocket expenses if you can sue.
