My Dad received a collection letter from Afni claiming $433.91 in Verizon phone charges on a phone number in a city he has never lived in and a phone number he never had. Verizon shows the number belongs to Winn Dixie, a grocery store! They (AFNI)were rude when my mom called to straighten it out and kept asking for a social security # which she refused to give them. I spent over an hour with Verizon who says my Dad does not owe a bill but they can't do anything about Afni. Verizon said Afni is their largest collection agency. I am going to write Verizon and the BBB. Can Afni be sued? I want in if they can.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

You're Right..

AUTHOR: Dazz - (U.S.A.)

Your father could end up with a claim agains AFNI if they violate federal law such as the FDCPA or other state laws.

I would send a certified letter return receipt to AFNI requesting verification that the debt is indeed yours. Information such as the original contract for the phone as well as detailed charges which prove that the debt is your father's. After all it is their responsibility not yours to prove it.
