This past winter I lived in Florida with my parents. I moved back to Michigan for the summer in March. While I was there I received 3 phone calls asking for me with my ex-married last name. I had no idea how they got my name and number, so I told them they had the wrong number and no one was there by that name.
When I was married, my ex messed up my credit very bad. But I fought back and fixed any negative item that was on my credit report because of him and I have had an Excellent credit rating for the past 10 year's. But I figured if someone was looking for me with my previous married name, it had to have something to do with my ex husband. Since my credit is in good standing, I will let them know they have the wrong number until I am blue in the face. This morning, my mother emailed me and let me know she got a recording on the answering machine to call Ken Hughes and left the phone number. They said it was very important. She called it back and asked to speak to Ken Hughes, of course he wasnt there and they asked for me. My mother told them no one lived there by that name. She gave me the information and I looked them up on line and found all the complaints against this person and company and read many storys similiar to my own.
I can not understand how these people got my parents' phone number. But I know it has something to do with my ex, and now that I know what I know about them, I will order all three of my credit reports to make sure nothing is on there that shouldnt be.
They have been told more than 4 times now that no one lives at my parents' with that name. How many more of these phone calls do they have to put up with from these scam artists? And what ever happend to the no call list that we all signed up with???
These people need to be stopped. And I am curious as to what sort of information of mine they have, that could be used as identity theft against me! I have been a victim of it 3 times in the last 9 years!
