Unique National Collections?
The library will probably reduce the the amount you owe when you return the books. More than likely the price of the books themselves is included along with the late fees, so once the books are returned they will probably remove the replacement book fee amount and just charge you the late fees (depending on your library and the type of books you had out, the late fees may end up being less than $15 or $20). You should be prepared to pay the late fees when you go to the library.
Have your parents order copies of your credit reports from all three credit bureaus to see if Unique is reporting on them. Since you are a minor you cannot order them, your parents will have to do it.
Instead of paying Unique, pay the library directly. Then ask the librarian to give you a receipt of your payment and then ask for a written statement saying that you do not owe anything to the library, make sure the receipt and the written statement are not on the same piece of paper.
Make a copy of the written statement.
Type up a debt validation request to Unique. Staple a copy of the written statement from the library to the validation letter and mail it off to Unique before 30 days have passed from the date you received their letter. Do not sign the validation request, only print your initials or type your name Send the letter by certified mail return receipt. (be sure to NOT include that payment receipt in with that validation request)
Unique may just go away after they receive your validation request, since they will have the written statement, that you included, which came from the library itself saying that you owe nothing. So there really isn't much they can do after receiving that.
When choosing a debt validation letter template don't use one that asks them to provide everything including the kitchen sink, just send a request that is short and to the point.
IF they are reporting on your credit reports then after you pay the library and send the validation request to Unique, then send a dispute to the credit bureaus saying something along the lines of .. the account that is reporting is in error as you have no account with Unique and to please remove it from your report.
Be sure to act quickly on this. Your validation request should be sent to Unique after you pay the library and before the first 30 days have passed from the date you received their letter. If they are reporting on your reports then your written dispute to the credit bureaus should be mailed to the bureaus on about the 5th day after you sent your validation request to Unique, or, after you receive the signed green certified mail card back from Unique .. whichever comes first.
You can Google debt validation sample letter templates or you might go to the site I've listed in the source box and do some reading in the Credit Forum. You'll be able to find all types of validation sample letters on there. The site is free to read, ask questions and to use anything you find on it.
