Is this on your caller ID??1

Helpful to 1 out of 5 people

If this is what shows up on your caller ID, how do you knokw it could be a collection agency?  If you answer the phone and they are trying to collect a debt that YOU owe, then you have the right to tell them to "Send me a letter" and you should receive that letter in a week.

Now, if they are calling to contact some other person (and I've had this happen) you can give that person's address if you know them or you can tell the agency that you don't know the person or how to reach them.  Just be truthful.  They do have "skip-tracers" wo look up the phone number for the last known address of a debtor or they search for potential neighbors or relatives in an effort to find this person.
