Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Honestly this sounds like a scam. A debt 3 years old now, that you never heard of, they have somehow purported to add "fees" to it, they do not have anything to validate their claim and are trying to scare you into paying without validation. I wouldn't pay anything on this. I'm doubtful they'll ever get you anything to validate the claim. "Turning evidence over to a court" means filing a lawsuit, which they would have to do in your home state. If they call again, tell them they haven't validated the claim per your request and that pursuant to the Fair Debt Collection Practice Act to A) provide all their contact information including the caller's identity, and B) to stop calling you or you will report them the the Fair Trade Commission for violation of the FDCPA.
