Can I control which debts my payments apply to?

Yes. If a debt collector is trying to collect more than one debt from you, the debt collector must apply any payment you make to the debt you select. But, what is equally important, a debt collector may not apply a payment to a debt you don’t think you owe or to a debt that you dispute.
