Afni Inc. / Collecting debt that I possibly can't owe!
I received a settlement letter from these people about two weeks ago. The letter stated that it was one of the many letters sent to me about some debt with Sprint from 5 years ago. First of all, first letter I've gotten from these people. Second, I've never have had Sprint in my life, and at that time I was 15 and didn't even own a cell phone. So, I'm pretty suspicious and decide to call em. I deny that the debt is mine and some guy says it's ok... it happens a lot so they'll take my name and address out the system since they had a completely different SSN. I was glad to supposedly get that over with, but I still felt something was off. I called Sprint just to see if there was ever anything in my name, address, etc. They confirmed that they had no clue what Afni was talking about and suggested I call them back and tell em that Sprint has no records for me. So, I call em and find the guy before lied: my name was still in the system. This other more professional sounding man pretty much told me that I needed to fax them a copy of my driver's license and SSN card to prove that I'm not the person who they're supposedly looking for. That sounded a bit shady, so I looked them up and lo and behold found all these other complaints.
I sent them a certified letter saying I'm contesting the debt and want it verified that I'm the person they're looking for, etc. I also contacted the BBB and my Attorney General to give them the heads up. So time goes by and I finally get a response from them. Their "verification" is pretty much a copy of their original letter: the name of the creditor (Sprint) and the balance(369.19). However this time, they included an SSN number... too bad it's X'd out. So, they didn't comply to my request and now are stating since they responded they can collect once more. I'm pretty much at my wit's end and don't know what to do. I'm probably going to check my credit to see if they've affected it so far. But after that, I'm not sure what to do aside from perhaps sending them a final letter stating I refuse to pay them since they got the wrong person.
