What You Should Know

Scammers will call and pose as collection agencies. More than likely, they will have already accessed your personal information through identity theft or by obtaining your credit report. As a result, they'll look pretty legitimate. They'll know what you owe, making the scam seem very believable. They'll often be abusive and harassing, demanding immediate payment through some combination of mail, phone, website, or debit card. But remember, whatever money you fork over, isn't going to your credit card bill. It's going right into the scammer's pocket.

What you should do

Don't pay a single penny and don't give away any of your personal information. Do some research to find out if the caller is legitimate or not. Search the caller's origination phone number and call the original creditor to find out for sure if they've sent your account to a collection agency.
