WEll, I'm not your lawyer and to be honest I probably know just as much as you do, when it comes to what is legal or isn't legal.Question for the in house legal team[Sublime].
I just recieved a voice mail from a collection agency. The woman did not ask for me by name, but made it seem like it was a very importan matter and I needed to get back with her ASAP adding that this was an attempt to collect a debt.
To my knowledge, I have no outstanding debts. I looked up the name of the company online and as one would expect, I saw a few stories of rude and heavy handed tactics and threats as well as one person who said they were looking for someone else and accused him of lying about who he was. They ended the call demanding that the dude inform whoever they were looking for to call them, still acting like he was lying about them having the wrong guy.
From a legal standpoint, do I have any reason to even inquire as to what this is about or if they are even calling for me? Or can I safely ignore this and wait for notification in writing if there is indeed some legitimate debt they are trying to collect from me?
Personally, I would call them back and tell them they have the wrong person (which is possible ... had someone call me onetime trying to collect a debt that wasn't for me and that is what I did ... they left me alone after that), so that they don't keep bothering you. Then if they are jerks to you, you can tell them to f' off. I don't *think* you have any obligation to call them, however.
