7. Yikes!
What are they requesting that he does? The huge $ amount is what they are threatening if he does nothing (eg ignores the letter.) What is he supposed to do? I would bet that it is important to read the details and seperate the 'what he needs to do' from the intentionally intimidating language that is bluster.

Certainly there are some around who are familiar with these letters (this is way out of my experience/familiarity) who can shed some light.

Best wishes for your son. Acting carefully from this point forward is very important.
