To who this may concern,
December 19th I received a call from a gentleman who was very stern and rude. He said that I owe them money and if I do not pay then he will serve me. When asking what I owed he proceeded to tell me that they purchased my Charged Off Wells Fargo account that was opened in 2007, and since there was money owed they bought the account and are now trying to collect on it. Weird, because the Wells Fargo account I had, I closed and no money was owed. I asked if I could call Wells Fargo to validate what he was telling me and he was very rude telling me I have 24 hours to call him back or he is serving me. Anyway, I called Wells Fargo and they were able to find my closed account and confirmed that I never even had ANY transactions on the account. They told me they do sell off accounts and in this case I owed nothing so this was most likely a scam. I called mister Rude back, and told him what I was told and he proceeded to yell at me as if I was his 3 year old. [continued below]....
I received a call from a lady named Gina, Calling her back, I ended up speaking with TAMMY TURNER. First and Foremost, Tammy is a sweet older lady. I enjoyed speaking with her, the circumstances however, I wish were different. Tammy proceeded to educate me on how and why they purchase accounts. She proceeded to tell me that I owe well over 2,000, after speaking to an attorney, I was directed to ask for a letter, Tammy then said they only need to send 1 letter out and regardless of if I received it or not they've done their job. Weird. So she said she could do me a FAVOR and email me the letter, find below:
Thank you for your time and cooperation in resolving this matter. It was a pleasure to speak with you. In order to resolve your case, the following settlement offer and payment plan has been presented and agreed to by you. The one time offer of $996.50 is due by January 17, 2019. Payment must be secured via debit or credit card by January 17, 2019. We accept these forms of payment: Visa, MasterCard, or American Express. Upon receipt of your final payment, you will be provided with a letter releasing you of all liabilities in regards to this debt.

I can be reached toll free at 888-256-8407. I look forward to speaking with you.
With that I wanted to see what would happen so I called Tammy back and made a payment arrangement with her, paying $45 today, the statement on my bank listed "Brookstone Uc" Tammy then said as soon I make the additional 2 payments they will mark me as PAID IN FULL to all bureaus, which is weird because Wells Fargo is not listed on any Bureaus, I looked. :) I then got another letter from Tammy, see below:
