    Abbreviations like DV, OC etc.

    I don't know all the abbreviations on this forum. Is there a sticky for that?

    I need:
    DV
    OC
    CA = Collection Agency?

    any others out there?

    DV = Debt Validation. Common Abbreviation in the "professional debtor" game. When a collection agency sends you a notice, you have the right under the FDCPA (Faid Debt Collection Practices Act) to request a validation of the debt.

    OC = Original creditor. Again, used more in the collection context to distinguish between the original lender and a collection agency or debt buyer (JDB = Junk Debt Buyer).

          Thank you for this list of abbreviations! I think it should be a sticky! (if one doesn't exist)

          I was going to ask if there was a glossary of BK terms listed somewhere around here. I'll need to re-check all the stickies.

                Good grief!! I missed this when I started out. For those who are new to this.......
                read all the stickies, and threads, FIRST before you jump in here. I misunderstood the take on some of the opinions of trustees, etc., and I was so frustated with the abbreviations. I was very nervous to start with. Anyways, I LOVE the list of abbreviations!!!! It will keep newbies from getting b- - - - - - out...lolololo for complaining that we hate abbreviations (or what the heck they mean)!!

                  Thank you thank you for making this a sticky!! I did ask about whether to start a sticky about these abbreviations from the suggestion thread at the beginning when I first visited the forum. I was so confused with some of the abbreviations. Anyway glad this sticky is here!
