Consumer Complaint: On XX/XX/XXXX I received a phone call to my home landline phone ( XXXX ) from a gentleman requesting I pay XXXX owed to XXXX XXXX. Also that they could negotiate a lesser amount or take payments. I informed him that I did owe a debt 20 plus years ago but that it had been written off. I asked him to cease and desist all communication with me. On XX/XX/XXXX I received a second phone call to my cell phone from a lady over the same debt. Again I told her to cease and desist communication. She told me she would move my file. While I was on the phone with her my son in Texas received a call looking for me over same account. Then we come to XX/XX/XXXX I had a voice mail on my landline and cell regarding they were tracing my identity to get a hold of me.
