The account had multiple lines as part of a Verizon plan. It was not the main line or account holder. MRS has never sent a text message or mailed a letter to me. Verizon had always sent all correspondence to me on my main line and number as account holder. So this was purposely done. Guessing they were able to grab the number off the list of account information presumably? But to simply write a text message stating that it was an attempt to collect a debt with my information is just outright wrong.
I have to get a copy of the text from the new carrier ( with working service ) for exact verbiage but was told it contained my account number name and the boiler plate attempt to collect a debt line.
thanks for your Input.
