Don't be too quick to pay, especially since you haven't received either call or letter.  Instead, go to freeannualreport.com and get all 3 credit reports.  Go over them very thoroughly and file disputes about anything you don't know about, or that you are sure isn't yours, and file the dispute with the company reporting these errors.  The credit bureau has to investigate and either verify or delete the disputed item.

Make it an annual ritual to check your credit reports so that everything on them is correct.

I also saw reported collections from BUS&PROF COL on my credit karma account. When I looked into it further I discovered that they are a collection agency who had taken over my deliquent account which resulted from an unpaid electric bill many years ago in another state.
