College Debt Will Haunt You Forever

, , , | Legal | March 1, 2021

I recently had my college debt forgiven because of my degenerative disability and my inability to work enough to pay my debt. Nearly two weeks after everything is processed, I receive a call from a number I don’t know.

Me: “Hello?”

Caller: “Yes, [My Name]?”

Me: “Who’s calling?”

Caller: “I’m looking for [My Name].”

Me: “Yes, and I’m asking who you are.”

Caller: *Annoyed* “[My Name], I’m not playing.”

Me: “Neither am I.”

Caller: “[My Name], you owe [amount].”

Me: “Who is this?”

Caller: “It’s [Debt Collection Agency].”

Me: “Oh. I actually had everything taken care of.”

Caller: “It doesn’t matter. You owe us.”

Me: “No, I actually don’t.”

Caller: “You do!”

Me: “I don’t.”

Caller: “What is your social security number?”

Me: *Laughing* “Nah, man, that’s not happening.”

Caller: “I’ll call the cops!”

Me: “Okay, you do that.”

Caller: “I will!”

Me: “Yeah, f*** you, bro.”

The caller hung up and I called the company. They denied having someone call me but couldn’t explain why some random scammer would know the exact amount I owed. I’m sure it was actually the debt collector still trying to get money from me, but when I researched the number, I couldn’t find anything.
