I received a call with the man opening up telling me that he was a debt collection agency and was calling in behalf of ???? (some kind of publishing company I've not heard of) and information that he received on this call would be used to correct the debt.
He then said that my husband's name had been reported to a collection agency and he would not answer my questions about who we were supposedly in debt to, because we have not received any bills. He said that he didn't know because he was just a collector. I told him that this sounded like a bunch of *** and he was going to have to tell me more about "who we owed" before I gave him ANY information. He then tried to "verify" my address...and it was wrong...and he said he would make a note in his system and that he would prefer that I not use profanity.
I told him that I would prefer that he did not call in the first place and hung up.
I then called the number back 1-866-753-3671 and the same man (Indian sounding) answered with a "hello?" I asked what the name of the agency was and he said Allied Interstate and that his name was Sam Micheals. I asked what did the company do, and he told me that he could not give out that information and insisted on looking up my "account." I told him not to bother because I was calling the police.
This kind of stuff just TICKS ME OFF!
