They told me that I owed for a credit card. I told them I did not have any credit cards. They said it was a credit card from 1999. I told them first of all, that bill is way over 10 years old and they couldn't collect on it even if I did owe it. They mentioned the name of the credit card company and I told them I never had any credit cards with such a company. They insisted I pay it immediately, and I told them they weren't getting a dime for a bogus credit card debt, and hung up.
I moved shortly after that and some how they got a hold of my cell phone number and called me. I asked them how they got my number and they said they have their ways. He said "I insist you pay this $7000 immediately so let's just take care of it right now". "I said this is how we will take care of it", and hung up on him. I immediately called my cell phone company and was told it would cost me close to $5 extra a month to put a block on my phone. I told her it would be worth the extra to have peace from these rip off artists. I was allowed up to 30 blocks and went online to find all the Portfolio Recover Associates I could find and blocked everyone of those numbers. So, now, the only way they will be able to call me is if they use their personal phones.
