Always. You want a list of the original debt, all associated fees, interest accrued, and current pay off balance. The debt should then equal only that amount when sold to the new organization.

When one company sells off your debt to another company they send your file and all of your information with them. The new company is probably going to call you and ask you to verify your information as well as setting up a new payment plan to pay off your debt. You could send one if you like.

Yes you should always have them give you a validation letter. Also you should make sure that they understand the the agreement before you give them any money. By having letter they can not go behind your back and change the terms of your agreement without your knowledge. They are tricky with this.
