Debt Validation- Need feed back

 Hello All,

 

 I am trying to help a friend, I am going to give a short list of what happened.

1) In February 2014 he receives 2 letters from ABC Collection, stating that he owe $1000.00 and $1200.00 for back rent, the two letters were vague with very little information.

2) He sent out two letters, one letter for each debt to have the debts validated, they were mailed out certified mail with return receipts.

3) April 14, 2014 (Post Mark), He received a letter from ABC Collections with copies of documents from my original lease.

Note :  His first notification of this debt was in February 2014,  he was not aware that this was reported to the Credit Bureau in September of 2013 and stayed on his Credit during the validation process ? can they do this ?
