Bell Atlantic / Improper billing - id theft
12/10/2007 - Today I received two collection notices in the mail from Afini, Inc. account # [protected] and [protected] in the amounts of $ 454.25 and $ 252.05 respectively. The telephone numbers in question were [protected] and [protected].
The rep from Afni also indicated that a third charge of $ 189.87 for account # [protected] for telephone # [protected] was also outstanding. I have not received any advice on this action yet, although this amount and telephone number are identical to an id fraud issue which I thought was resolved in 1999 with Bell Atlantic, Receivables Management division located at 395 Flatbush Avenue Extension, 6th Floor, Brooklyn, N.Y. 11201.
In any event, NONE of these telephone numbers were ever assigned to me personally, and I have never lived in the Bronx, N.Y. I have been a resident of Nassau County for 68 years and at my current address fo 39 years. Please take action to dispose of these fraudulous claims ASAP. I will be contacting the Public Service Commission in Albany , New York to inform that agency that this issue continues to be totally out of order.
