My credit's wonderful. Not so much my ex-husband's, apparently.
I divorced him in 1992, and hadn't heard anything until I changed addresses (not phone #) three years ago. That summer, I got a call from a woman (a real American!) who laughed and apologized when I said I want nothing to do with this man, don't know where he is, and don't want him to know where I am. She said she would take me off the record.
Problem is, the woman he married after me has the same first initial as I. So I got another call (yes, from an Indian guy) last year, who claimed "this is the first time I've had your case come across my desk, ma'am." No, it's the first time YOU as an individual have had this case come across your desk.
Your company, however, is harassing me without any right to do so for debt that was incurred AFTER I divorced this man 20 years ago. I thought it was taken care of. Today I got another call, and yes, he's from India. I'm sending a "Cease and desist" letter--that got rid of the other company who was looking for him/them.
I understand that these bulldogs have to go after people in debt, but for all they know, by continuing to connect my info to his, they could be revealing my residence, etc to him--possibly putting my safety at risk? At the very least, it's harassment that I don't deserve, since I pay my bills.
