Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If the collection is from Germany, they really cannot do anything to you if you are in the US. They would need to spend money to come to the US and try to collect and if you canceled as you said, they will not do anything and would not win anything. You need to write them a letter, not an email and tell them you do not owe the debt and have no knowledge of the debt and that their communication with you is harassment. I would not pay them one penny, because if you had a subscription and cancelled you do not owe them anything.
