    My daughter had an rear end accident with a 4WD in the rain where she unfortunately ran into the rear of the vehicle when the driver braked suddenly.
    1. No damage to the 4WD other than minor cosmetic
    2. Police were not called so no police report lodged
    3. 4WD owner chose to not pursue further action [ and drove off ]
    4. No further contact or notification from the driver or his insurance company
    5. Accident occurred 6 weeks ago.
    6. Daughters Car not worth repairing due to 4WD tow bar damage to front end
    She has just received notification from a Debt Collection Agency that she must pay $2400 for negligence to cover costs of repairs on behalf of the Client.
    The letter did not state who the client was or identify an Insurance Company.
    Is this a scam?
    How should she respond?

    Challenge the debt and ask for verification of the demand.
