Fake Debts

Many of the population is getting tired of fake debts.  I just saw an article about a woman owing a great deal of money for her son’s college even though the debt was cleared.  This has happened to me a few times.  For example, I left my home in Las Vegas to help a family member in Arizona.  I turned in the equipment and then it began.  The harassment from phony collection agencies. I called and explained I had turned in all equipment and had a receipt.  I faxed the receipt yet still they continued to harass me.  I finally called Cox and clarified that I did not owe any money and they fixed it.  It literally took months to make the collection agency to stop harassing me.  My next joy was with a medical company.  A collection agency claimed I owed several hundred dollars.  I wrote back and they continued to harass me.  I sent copies of my bills verifying that I did not owe the money.  They did not care.  Once again, this year I left Las Vegas and my Cox equipment was turned in.  I have the receipt.  Yesterday I received a notification from a new collection agency claiming I owed money.  This is all ridiculous.  In business, the fake debts occur continuously. It is a fabulous way of stealing but it is still wrong.  The Cox problem also happened to my daughter.  She also proved she had turned in the equipment with a receipt and yet they just would not quit. A person I have worked with had their account stolen and used for numerous purchases.  Her bank cleared the matter but once again the collection agencies took it upon themselves to harass her.  It appears to be a never ending cycle of stealing. Over the years as a paralegal I have help numerous people with their fake debts.  The only thing that truly helped with that was I had the power to use an attorney to sign the letters and threaten to sue.  Has this ever happened to you?
