    A bank is harassing me to pay a credit card debt from 2 yrs ago I don’t recall having.

    I requested a copy of the original agreement with my signature (supposedly) on it.

    (*) They replied they can’t find one.

    Where can I find a Federal or state code that says a debt claimant (bank) must produce a copy of the original contract signed by both parties to validate the debt?
    Is it in:
    Uniform commercial Code ?
    Fede. laws ?
    State codes ?

    thank you for the help, Josh
