Message on answering machine said to call Anchor Receivables Management at 1-866-879-2116
about debt collections. Caller ID showed 757-321-6278.
Next day I called 321-6278, the automated system asked me to enter my telephone number. Terrance (floor manager)then picked up the call and asked me for my name and telephone #, which I gave. He said my wife owed on two accounts Wachovia and Bank of America. He listed four (4) amounts due, two (2) for each of the accounts.
I told him we do not have accounts with those organizations. I which Wachovia account, in wich state, was the account. Terrance said he could not provide any more information as I was not the account holder.
He could provide the amounts owed but not information about the account. RED FLAG #1
He said my wife would need to call and give him the last four (4) digits of her SSN. RED FLAG #2
We have never received a notice from either institution. Where is the paper trail?
