When called, caller ID says 000-000-0000, voice is automated, claims that they want to serve me papers at home or work. Interesting because a process server would not warn you before hand. I called the # provided, sonehow they have my SS#. I asked what it was about, they said that papers were to be served regarding a collection. I asked what for, she claimed that I owed $850 for 2 debts that I already sttled and paid off. I told her I have proof of this, she said sorry, but we will serve the papers anyway and hung up. I called her back to request that thy stop calling me and she told me that I was not in a position to make the request and hung up on me again. I called back once again, and said that I have every right to ask to stop the harassing calls and that they must stop and hung up on her.

It's a scam collection agency.... Do NOT give those people any information.... Do NOT confirm any information..... and report them so that others don't fall prey to such scams....!!!
Consumers across the country report that they're getting telephone calls from people trying to collect on loans the consumers never received or on loans they did receive but for amounts they do not owe. Others are receiving calls from people seeking to recover on loans consumers received but where the creditors never authorized the callers to collect for them. So what's the story?
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation's consumer protection agency, is warning consumers to be on the alert for scam artists posing as debt collectors.
