This company has already been sued, yet stay in "business". Only this is no business. Their latest tactic is to purchase names and mailing addresses of unsuspecting victims. This practice should be illegal, but it isn't. They use these names and addresses alongside carefully picked phone numbers. What they do to find a phone number that placed a call is to use the victim's state information to locate the phone number of a jail located in a county different from the mailing address. Then to find a phone number to make the bill to, they find a number local to the mailing address city that will never find an answer if called. But they list this number on the bill as if it is yours. Legally, this "bill" is considered legitimate if you, the victim, do not dispute it. That's their game. The statistics of most collection agencies are that most people do not respond to collections, but instead throw them in the trash. So the scammers know this. They create phony bills and send them out to thousands of people. Many of those people will not respond. But the bill be end up in collections.

Do yourself a favor and fight back. File with BBB of California to shut this business down. File a complaint with the US Postal Service because this is technically mail fraud. Also send threats to FCC and other commissions to solve this problem. It can be done, and the only reason stuff like this happens is because people have become too passive.
