Oh...we have had our fair share of this nonsense too. Apparently someone took out a cell account in my husband's name (but they had other details wrong) and the phone company contacted us to see if he really did make those $3000 worth of calls from Nigeria to, no...guess they need better screening protocols. Then we got a scam letter from a collection agency saying we owed money for an account with a company we never did business with and when we contacted the company, the account number didn't even exist. It's all a scam to get people to send $$ to the fake collection agency...I swear...the crooks work even harder during a recession...
