Received a collection notice from AFNI Collections the other day stating I owe $470.67 for a past cell bill from Verizon Communications. Never had Verizon Wireless, called Verizon and they never heard of the number. Tried calling AFNI and they kept directing me to make an appt on-line to have someone call me. AFNI even used an old area code number from where I used to live in California over 10 years ago! I have already sent them a registered letter stating for them to show proof of deliquency, where and when and with what identification was used. They have not responded yet.

Afni, verizon debt paid 7 years ago Bloomington Illinois
I just received a letter from afni, inc. to collect a debt from verizon for $ 175.46 on 6-22-1999. almost 7 years ago! I only save financial records for 4 years then they go in the shredder. Now i have no proof to show afni,inc. that this debt has been cleared, i have never been contacted by verizon in 7 years about any debt or any other collections agency. This was a big surprise to me when i opened this letter. I called afni, inc. they told me the date of the acct. and the street i used to live on but not further info. now i am worried this will go to collections and hurt my credit report. Please Help!

AFNI, Charged for PAID old AT&T-Cingular Account Bloomington Illinois
Afni has sent me a letter almost 3 years after this account was paid to another debt collector. I called the original collector and they told me they no longer work with Cingular as their account. Of course my bank records dont go as far back as 3 years! So here I am faced with a debt I cant prove to that was paid because none of these bogus collection agencies ever send receipts even when requested!! I am so frustrated!

Afni ripoff Verizon Fraudulent Billing & Collections Bloomington Illinois
Yesterday I received a collection letter from AFNI stating that I owed $691.74 for phone service from Verizon. The billing telephone number listed is not even in my area that I live!! I have never had service with Verizon. EVER!! I have made several attempts to call AFNI but when I finally get through the busy signals I am left on hold...My plan is to call Verizon today but I see from other responses that may be pointless. Verizon should want to get involved or they may loose valuable business in the future....I am also going to send a certified letter in response to the notice. William Williston, FloridaU.S.A.

Afni Possible bill collection scam Bloomington Illinois
Today received an offical looking collection notice for a past due bill for over $1000 with an orignal creditor being Verizon Communitcations, Inc. Called Afni, Inc. and the representative stated we might be the victim of an identity theft. We have never had an account with Verizon or used any of their services. Supposedly these charges go back more than 5 years and we had never receved bill from Verizon at any time...until this collection notice. The police have been called in and are launching an investigation. I am demanding a debt validation from Afni in addition to proof that the company is legitimate and lisenced to do business in Il. The company representative stated we have the right to dispute the claim but it would be assumed that this debt if valid until proved otherise. J. Great Falls, MontanaU.S.A.

AFNI Sent Fraudulent Settlement Offer. Sound familiar? Bloomington Illinois
Today I received an attempt by AFNI to collect $355.67 on a Cingular account. They said if I sent half of this I would no longer have to worry about this obligation . We called the toll-free number and were told this was the fifteenth letter they had sent! The account supposedly is from 2000. They could give no telephone number, or provide any information whatsoever. We filed a dispute and told them we expect to hear from them before the 31st, and that we are also filing a fraud report.

Afni They send out fake bills Ripoff Bloomington Illinois
Afni has sent thousands of fake letters out telling the people that they owe old phone bills. I checks on several of them and was told by the phone companies that they are fake. I called Anfi and told them there were no records at the phone co. to back up the bill they sent. They said its because they are old bills. So this is how they explain why the phone company has no records of this. If they have no records how did they give it to them in the first place. All letters shold be sent to youe District attorney and get them closed down. A lot of people do send them money. They have sent me four bills from four different phone companies over the last three years. Legal-justice Lakeland, FloridaU.S.A.

AFNI CAN'T BELIEVE THIS NIGHTMARE ripoff Bloomington Illinois
My husband and I applied for a loan last week and found out that I have a Collections account on my credit report. We pulled it up ourselves and found this company called AFNI, both of us were at a loss. So, I made the mistake of calling them, don't I wish I would have found this website first. NEVER call them, deal strictly through the US Mail, other posters on this website say that they're scared of committing mail fraud. They were not helpful at all and I found them to be extremely rude and aggressive. They said that I actually owed for 2 accounts, one had been reported to the credit agencies and one was getting ready to be reported. Both accounts total $275.00 and one is from 2001 and one is from 2003. The phone numbers and addresses they referenced are correct (where do they get this information???) but the time frames are off from when I actually lived in those houses and I never closed the account in 2001, it was just transferred to the new address. They also claimed that they have sent me several notices. I have NOT received a single notice from AFNI (or Verizon for that matter) about either of these items. My husband and I THINK their scam is that they don't send the notices, claim they do and then wait until someone like us applies for a loan and finds it on their credit reports. We all know you'll do almost anything to clear up your credit report in that instance and we think that's what they're banking on. My recommendation is to keep reading on this website, there is a lot of good information on here and it helped me compose a letter to AFNI to dispute these charges. We were also able to find that even if this debt was valid, the Virginia Statute of Limitations is 3 years from the final bill, so check the Statute of Limitations for your state and don't let them bully you. I also recommend that you dispute it with the credit bureaus, even it it isn't on there yet. I even called Verizon, they were very nice but couldn't help me. All she could verify was that I did have accounts with those numbers at one time (duh, already knew that) and they they did sell a bunch of accounts to AFNI. She couldn't even tell me if I was one of them. Count me in on any lawsuits. I fear I'll be fighting AFNI for a VERY long time, but it's become a matter of principal now.

Afni fraudulent collection case closed ripoff Bloomington Illinois
Like many people here, my husband received a collection letter concerning a Verizon account he never had. We sent a dispute letter to Afni stating that he had never had a Verizon account and they replied asking for a copy of his drivers license, his passport, and his home phone number, among other information. I looked through the tips on this website and others, composed the following letter and sent it certified mail, return receipt requested. Feel free to copy it if you feel it would be useful in your own situation. To whom it may concern: I'm writing to continue the dispute of the validity of this debt and demand that you cease and desist collection action. You may not contact me by phone. I am requesting (and under the FDCPA you are required to send) the debt validation, the signed contract that created this bill, and the full account history and itemization of charges. I also need proof that you are legally entitled to collect on the alleged debt and licensed in my state to do debt collections. Furthermore, if you own the debt, I need to see the purchase contract, proof of payment, and full chain of title. Lastly, I would like to see proof that this alleged debt is not out of statute. If you cannot provide the above requested information within 30 days of your receipt of this letter, I will contact the Illinois Better Business Bureau, the Illinois State Attorney General, the Ohio State Attorney General, the FTC, and the FBI regarding this matter. Thank you, -- I got the following letter in response: This letter is to inform you that we have investigated your dispute related to the referenced account. Based on the investigation this account has been closed. Afni, Inc. will take no further collection action. In addition, if this account has been subject to credit reporting, the credit reporting agencies will be directed to remove this account from your credit report. Please note it may take up to 60 days for the account to be removed from your record at all of the credit reporting agencies. In the itnerim, you may use this letter as a notice regarding the status of the account. We apologize for the inconvenience this situation may have caused. -- It's nice not to be hounded for money we don't owe, but I fully intend to educate others about this scam. I've contacted my local news and hope to hear back from them sometime next week. I wish everyone here the best of luck in dealing with these predators and thank everyone here for their suggestions, knowledge, and advice. Elaine Columbus, OhioU.S.A.

AFNI Fraudulent collection of verizon accounts Ripoff Bloomington Illinois
In mid June I was contacted by someone from some where (they wouldn't give me the name of the company) regarding a Verizon bill from 1999. I requested a copy of the bill and the authorization from the creditor, for them to collect the monies. They became very irrate, demanding that I pay the bill and I hung up. I review my credit report fairly often and notice that 2 different 'unpaid' Verizon bills showed up on my credit report within the last 90 days. They are for the same period of time (2001 - 2002) but with different accounts numbers and balances. The creditor is listed on both as 'Verizon Former' with no contact information. I have sent a letter to AFNI asking for a copy of the bill and telling them to only contact me in writing. We shall see. Thanks Cathey Cathedral City, CaliforniaU.S.A.

AFNI, Inc. Fraudulent Bill Ripoff Bloomington Illinois
AFNI, Inc. recently sent me a Notice of Collection for a Verizon account I have never had. I called to let them know that they have the wrong person, but the representative Diane kept telling me to stop interrupting her when she was telling me that my account was past due and that I owed Verizon $80.01. I told her that I am interrupting her because she is making incorrect statements when she states that my account is past due. She asked me for my current mailing address. I told her that I would now disclose that to her. She stated that she would put down that I refused to answer. I said fine. Then she asked me for my phone number. I told her that I would not provide her that information. She said that she would enter that I refused to answer. I told her fine. She asked me who my current employer was. I told her that I would not provide her that information. She stated that she would enter that I refused to answer. I said fine. Then she asked if I wanted to resolve this account. I told her that I wanted her to get her information straight and that this is not my account. She asked if I was refusing to pay my past due account. I told her that I am refusing to pay an account that does not belong to me. She said that she would make sure that my refusal to pay goes on my permanent record. I said, you mean my permament record from high school? She told me to stop being flippant towards her. Then she tried to hang up on me. I said, wait, wait, can you tell me when this bill orginated? She put me on hold and came back on the line a couple of minutes later. She said that the bill was from April 1998. I said from nine years ago, are you crazy? She tried to hang up on me again. I said to her wait, wait, but sorry I didn't get your name, was it Daphne? She said, I have told you several times that my name is Diane. Do I need to spell it for you? I said, I think that you had better. So she spelled it D-I-A-N-E. Then I said, and how do you spell you last name? She replied, I not giving you that information! and hung up on me. My next step is to write Certified/Return Receipt letter to them demanding validation, which I know that they cannot provide. I have written an email to my Congressional Representative and State Attorney General about these criminals. I will bring down the full weight of the government on these idiots.

AFNI We Need Class Action Bloomington Illinois
AFNI has sent dunning letter on an account that is clearly outside of the Statute of Limitation involving a Verizon/GTE account from the 90's. These types of practices need to be stopped as soon as possible, and the only way this can happen is if we bring class action against them. I pray someone reads these threads who is willing to come and assist the consumers who are victimized by such companies. I had American Agencies try this a couple years ago, and ended in filing a $50,000.00 suit against them in the Federal courts, in which they were quick to offer a very low settlement to stay outside of the courts. If we don't start standing up to this type of activity, they will continue to sidestep the law, and continue to ruin decent people's lives. Dbx Midwest City, OklahomaU.S.A.

I received a collection notice at my work office on September 13, 2007. On the statement it was reported that AFNI had aquired my account from Verizon Virginia Inc. It also listed past telephone numbers I have had. When I questioned a collector named Sue about this she stated that I live in a state that only requires the utility companies to collect fees for standard services, and that does not include add ons such as long distance phone service. I explained that I had paid all of my utility bills and that I never received any notice from Verizon letting me know that I owed them any money. It had been almost 5 years since I have had service from Verizon (and never from Verizon Virginia Inc.) I also requested that since AFNI had aquired my account from Verizon Virginia Inc. they should be able to send me a copy of the records showing I have in fact neglected to pay for any service. At that point Sue became very irrate and said we can settle this over the phone. I told her I was not going to settle anything over the phone and in fact would not be sending them any money until they gave me proof. Then she tried to use scare tactics on me with threats of reporting this to the credit bureaus. I told her that I owe nothing to AFNI, INC. and I didnt feel I owed anything to Verizon Virginia Inc either. It is my intention to send this report to the Illinois Atty. Generals office for fraud.

Afni fraudulently attempting to take money Bloomington Illinois
I received a Collection Notice from Afni, Inc. They claimed I owed the sum of $202.21 for a Bell Atlantic New York phone bill from 2000. I have resided in California since 1997. I called to dispute Afn's claim and while the woman on the phone was initially cordial she became terse and rude upon discovering that I had no intention of paying a bill that over the course of the conversation became a Verizon bill. I have never had an account with Verizon and even if the bill were mine, it is outside New York State's 6 year statute of limitations for Afni to collect any such debt. That being said I do not and have not ever owed Verizon any sum of money. Is there an attorney filing a class action? If so who? This is a clearly a grift with wire and mail fraud and Afni and it's employee's should pay the price, not those of us they consider marks. Greg Flagstaff, ArizonaU.S.A.
