    I'd try calling it anyway. They probably will end up charging you $1,000,000.00.

    btw. if there is an I.D. number obvious they've tried doing this other people. lol.

    now that i put 1 and 1 together there has been a 1 800 number calling and calling pretty much everyday and im really pretty sure its a third party bill collector of some kind, been going on for a couple or several weeks, im 3,000 or 3,500 total in debt to two or three different places combined,, so hmm, maybe its another way for them to try to get me to call without them having to let me know who they are and what they want


    even if the phone numbers dont match it still can be the same place, im sure they covered that base by having different line/number for this and another for showing up on my caller ID, if i can find out from where the number is calling from then i bet it might show up as being from florida
    how could i go about finding this out ? operator ? that easy ?

    thanks
