Always good to check out suspicious items on this site. My son received two letters of collection from afni for verizon and alltel. HE HAS NEVER HAD EITHER ONE OF THESE ACCOUNTS. Of course the fact that they didn't offer a phone # for these supposed accounts (how could they, non exist) raised my eyebrows and I decided not to EVEN call them without checking the internet first. Can you imagine the unsupecting people who get freaked out and pay?! I always think of the elderly as I know my mom would pay this immediately - thinking she MUST have overlooked something years ago. How I wish 60 minutes would get hold of this scam!!!!! I'm calling my Mom now and telling her to alert everyone she knows.
This is simply unimaginable.

AFNI is a bottom feeder debt collector that buys old accounts like this...Often they can't located the original account holder so they go after people with similar names or addresses and place negative info on their credit files...

Judgemental much?

How do you know this is the fault of Verizon or Alltel? Did you ever bother to think if identity theft or some such thing? In that case the phone companies are as much the victim as the person being defrauded. So hold your horses on the blame there, Tonto!

The fact is that most service companies takes hundreds of phone calls like this every day, all claiming they never did this or that so the charges are wrong - and a VAST majority (over 95% of them) are plain out lies by people trying to get out of paying. That's a simple fact. The other five percent are legitimate billing errors, or fraud (usually less than 1% fraud in the telecommunications companies now due to digital signals and encryption).

So before you go blaming the phone company or go slandering them, get all the facts. Don't jump to conclusions.
