hey there fellas !
i am posting this to get your opinions as to which this is a scam or not because it is very weird.
i have relieved a letter from credit corp group - notice of assignment of debt. it says that i owe them $1,300 overdue. i am not aware that i am in this sort of debt, i think i would know if i had one.
i just called them up and asked them about it, first of all the guy said i used to live in NSW, which was wrong, secondly, he got my middle and last name right but not my first name. then he passed me onto someone else for more details, the lady got my date of birth correct, so it is me. then i asked her where is the source of this debt. after holding and searching she said that is it from 1989 !!!!
she said she doesn't have any more information and that another guy is holding all the information and he will call me back in an hour.
is this a joke or what ??? 1989 !!! i barely even knew english at that time let alone sign something for $1300!!! i also find it very stupid the way i get this notification 20 years later. note the people over the phone did sound very...unprofessional. they were struggling for words and very nervous.
what do you think of this??? i did a search of credit corp and they are pretty legit...credit collectors or something... even listed on the asx!
