I have since moved to another state, but never received anything in the mail concerning the bill and when it might have gone to collections. The past 2-3 weeks I've been receiving calls from Allied Interstate, LLC. Looking back on the credit report, there is another credit agency listed for the accounts. This leads me to possibly believe that Allied was assigned/bought the debt from the original collection agency, and the information has not been updated on my credit report. One of my old addresses is listed on the credit report, but not my most current. However, today I returned a call to Allied Interstate (nervous and trying to gather information without giving away information I wasn't supposed to) and they verified my name and asked me to verify the last 4 digits of my social (which I felt very invasive and felt the correct response would be to say, "I don't give that over the phone"), however the numbers he read that he had were wrong, twice (he tried to correct himself the second time, to which I only stated that "those numbers were not correct"). He quickly explained they had the wrong number and ended the call. I'm not sure if this was for that particular debt or just a scam. I'm still not entirely sure as to the nature of this debt. If I do still owe something to the OC, is it too late to try and work out something with them? Am I going to hear back once the credit agency gets its information right? Who (if anyone) should I contact for help about this? Should I contact the Collection Agency originally listed on the report? I'm ashamed to admit this has me very worried, and has caused me more stress than I'd like to think. I'm finally working after being unemployed for almost 8 months, but not making a whole lot. Should I consider consulting an attorney? What are my options? Thank you to anyone who can offer assistance.
