Consumer Complaint: I began receiving calls from an unknown number on XX/XX/2018. The caller left numerous voicemails even after speaking to me. The caller stated that she is a process server and would be serving me at my home or job and instructed me to call XXXX with a reference number. The same caller left a message for me the same evening. This morning, XX/XX/18 she called again and left the same message. I called the number provided, XXXX and asked what company I was calling. He stated XXXX XXXX XXXX or XXXX. He proceeded to tell me that Bank of America was going to sue me for {$1400.00}. He said that I could either pay the amount in full or give a refusal after which XXXX Bank of America would proceed with a lawsuit. I stated that I would like to speak with Bank of America and he said he could not provide any contact number for his client. I advised him that I would still be contacting Bank of America. He then stated I needed to call back before the process server was scheduled to come out and serve me at XXXX today, XX/XX/18. The debt I had from Bank of America is 16 or 17 years old. It was reported on my credit by a bill collector and removed after the 7 year period. I no longer have any documentation because the debt is nearly two decades old. When I look up the phone number XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, it comes up as the number to a property manager. When I look up the business name they gave me, AXXXX XXXX XXXX, no business comes up, only the definition for XXXX XXXX XXXX
