Afni AFNI I received letter yesterday for a "DISCOUNTED PAYMENT OFFER" for a $1600.89 balance with Verizon! Internet, Internet
*Consumer Comment: Final thought

*Consumer Comment: A Chemical reaction
*Consumer Comment: Added clarification.
*Consumer Comment: Steve is right
*Consumer Comment: Bad "advice" from "Tagurit"...again...
*Consumer Comment: Here is what to do
I was in SHOCK! $1,600.89?? Who are they & what IS this???
It states this is "another attempt to contact you" but this is the FIRST letter I have received from them...
Further down the letter towards the bottom, it shows who the creditor is & it is VERIZON! I have been a customer of theirs for 12 YEARS! In fact, I still have my current cell phone service with them!
I sat & thought about this for awhile, wondering if maybe I had not closed a prior account after my divorce 10 years ago & had moved several times-maybe somewhere along the line, at that time I had accumulated such a balance? I had a LOT of things going on in my life, with my 2 kids...is this even possible?? So, I called the # on the letter: 1-866-308-1160 & a rep answered right away asking if I wanted to pay by credit, debit or check...I told her that I didn't remember such an outstanding balance & she said she "didn't know, but if you pay the $100.00, it's a very good deal"...I thought about it & told her I wanted to do some research online about this first & she just said "oh, ok"!!
I googled AFNI --thank GOD & was amazed at the 100's of people who have posted complaints about them on different sites...
I still don't know what to do about this--I will probably start with Verizon & see if they can dig back to when this possibly happened--it has to be at least 10 years ago..I will definitely send a letter to the BBB, so they can add it to their Afni file!
I'm happy that I trusted my instincts to check this out first.. If anyone can advise me further, I'd appreciate it!
