Consumer Complaint: Over several months, I have been getting phone calls asking to speak with ” XXXX XXXX ” about credit management. That ‘s not me, and I ‘ve never met a XXXX . Every time I get a call about her I say, ” I do not know a XXXX XXXX . You have the wrong person. Please do not call this number again. ” However I still get harassed about this strangers ‘ credit card debt. The most recent call came from Midland Credit Management. The phone number that called me was ( XXXX ) XXXX I am not certain whether it has been the same company calling me in the past, or another debt collector, but they always ask for ” XXXX XXXX ” ( again, no affiliation to me ). I do not know how my phone number became associated with this account, but please help me disassociate myself.
