A week later, I received another notice that Merrick was willing to settle the account for twenty cents on the dollar, or $182.40. That kind of drop raised yet another red flag for me. I'd never heard of a creditor willing to so quickly settle for such a small sum.
Finally, last week, I was sent the most recent correspondence from the collection agency asking that, if I wish to protest this as a fraud case, I needed to obtain a police report and send them a copy. [continued below]....
I do not believe Merrick has a case against me, and I don't know how they got my social security number. But I will send them a letter stating that if they intend to pursue the matter, I will consider their attempts as fraud in itself, and I will contact the FBI to make a complaint against them. I doubt it will do any good, but I can only do so much without spending thousands on a lawyer over a $900 debt. Even if you stay clear of them, you aren't necessarily safe.
