I got a call from Pots Phone MB 1-204-949-3108 The guy claimed to be doing a survey for magazines and you got a free magazine. Asked for address. I dumbly gave it to them. They also asked first for female between 18-30 and I said not here right now them asked 35-60 and I said I was. They asked age and I told them 36. I would guess they are going to serve to go to court? or would they be sending a 1099 or whatever the form is? I owe three companies a total of 12K. They are all about 6 years old. (In TN do you compute when last payment paid?)

Also, I've moved to CA since got credit card so would it be CA statute or TN where I got in first place? No sleep tonight! Is it fraud for them to have lied? also asking age? I'm on SSI due to bad health problems but do own a house and also am on my grandparents house to help them with stuff. Plus they did a house in my name for son as in a trust in a will. I thought about calling the snakes back to tell them I will be in CA on November 14 when they said they would be delivering the magazine by first courier then mail. (I reasked as I'd reversed number when got to computer thinking oh crap!) Then they claim will call on November 15 to ask questions about it at a certain time.. thanks for any help!

Perhaps I'm missing something obvious but I don't see what it is that makes you so certain that this has anything to do with Portfolio Recovery???

In any case, whatever information you've given them you've given them; there isn't anything you can do at this point to change that. If this is PR and they sue you or do whatever else they are going to do then you can face that when and if it happens.

SOL would likely be argued by them based on whichever is most advantageous to them and I don't think there is any absolute answer anyone could give you...in any case, it's academic until/unless they do sue you.

I'd advise you to not give out any personal information to anyone you don't know; I know I never do.
