Received odd looking Sprint bill in mail. When I called the 800 number, they said I owed money for this Sprint long distance call to Ben Lomond, CA.
I'm in Arizona and don't know anyone in Ben Lomond, CA. Further more I don't have an account with Sprint or long distance service on my landline, the number in question that this supposed call was made from. I even called the Ben Lomond, CA # from my cell, spoke to a very nice woman who said she knows no one in Tucson, AZ and had never received any calls from there. With all this stacked up against this third party billing company for Sprint submitting me a bill, I told them I had no intention of paying!
I've reported this to the USPS mail fraud dept. and also the Arizona Attorney General's Office. So hopefully that will be helpful. In the meantime, I've had a duplicate bill sent, then the phone calls started not identifying who they were just saying to call back and ask for Maxine King.
I called back and was asked for personal info before they would tell me what company they were collecting for. I refused. They kept calling. Finally I called back and was told they were collecting for this Sprint bill.
I told them I had no intention of paying for a bill I didn't rack up! And that I'd reported this whole thing to the above mentioned. Today, I got a notice in the mail from NCO! Haven't heard back from the Attorney General's Office yet.
Maybe I'll call them tomorrow. Anyone out there had similar situation with this company?
Did they ever go away? OY!
