It could be from that nightmare, but I won’t know until I can perform the research.
Last week I received a letter in the mail from a law firm. The letter was addressed to me, but the spelling of my name was a little off. I didn’t immediately recognize the company and I nearly threw the envelope right in the trash can. The law firm is located in another state, and I never heard of that company. The law firm sent me a letter stating that I have a past due account that was purchased by their company. The law firm threatened to sue me if I didn’t come up with the money at that moment. I never heard of the company that referred the law firm to me. They didn’t have much information about the debt or the account. They didn’t even have my social security number correct. They wanted $6,000 from my account, and I didn’t know what to do. I tried to call a legal law service, but I make too much money for free or cheap help and not enough money to pay for a lawyer. Honestly, I’m not even sure the account is mine. A roommate of mine tried to steal my identity back in 2005. It could be from that nightmare, but I won’t know until I can perform the research. The law firm threatening me with the $6,000 bill didn’t want to give me very long to research the issue. I’m going to do my best to find someone that can help. I might go over to the School of Law to ask if there are any students that could help. Maybe some of them could offer a bit of assistance for a low-cost fee.
