Consumer Complaint: The caller identified himself as someone from a debt collection agency ( unnamed ) and said my daughter owed {$250.00} to XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX through named doctor who she had seen and had had outstanding debt at one time, so I thought it was legitimate. They had an old address for her, so I gave them her new address and phone number. I also told them we would need a copy of the bill. He agreed to send it and a settlement letter with a reduced amount ( red flag ) to my email, which I gave him. A little internet research indicates this is a scam. I did not provide SSN or credit card info.
