Written correspondence is the best method to deal with civil collection disputes. When these disputes have reached a civil court, every motion you make puts the ball in the other court. If the counterparty does not respond, you can likely win your motion.

There are specific criteria to dismiss by mail a civil collections case, without having more information as too what the status is I cannot answer properly.

You can respond in writing with the reasons that the collector should not be paid. You may also represent yourself in court and defend yourself against the collector.

Laws regulating civil collections vary by state. Since you didn't tell us which state you live in, I can't answer your question.

Filing a motion for dismissal by mail in writing can be done. Written statements carry more impavt with the judge in the case.
