  • Debt collectors are not allowed to threaten you. You need to get a bankruptcy attorney. Your attorney will send his company a letter explaining that they will be prosecuted if they continue to contact you. Good luck.

  • I could be very wrong about this, BUT I think you should start out by getting as much information from them as possible. Ask them what company/business they work for, why you are being charged $700. How did they get your information? Find out what their name, address and phone number is. Questions like this may lead to why they are calling you and charging you and threatening you. Then you need to do as much research as possible. Once you have all the information, if you think it is a scam or if you have NO idea what they are talking about, go to the police and find out the next step to protect yourself from theft/arrest.
