I received a call from someone saying they were from Allied Interstate, it sound like he was calling from was from a Indian call center because of his heavy accent. The person called when I was at work and called me on my company phone, he asked for me by my first name only and would only identify himself as Mohammad from Allied Interstate. I asked him who he was, why he was calling and who he was wanting to speak with. He said again he was looking for me (first name only), if I was living in a city in Washington State ( I am not, live in Alaska) and that he would explain more after I said I was so in so and living in Washington State. I told him no, explain to me now who you are and what you want, he said thank you and hung up.
I am sure they are calling for a debt from the mid 90's that use to be handled by Portfolio Recovery, I believe the debt was for around $400. Like I said, the debt is from the mid 90's and Portfolio Recovery use to send me stuff in the mail every once in the while about it.
The question I have is this: My credit scores are now in the low/mid 700's on all three reporting agency and I want to keep them that way. I have worked really hard to get my scores from the 500's to where they are now. Can this company do something on a debt that is over 15 years old to reflect negatively on my credit reports? Thanks for any help in advance...............

Some helpful tips:
- Your post may not get a reply right away. Don't be discouraged, this is a very busy board. If it falls off of the first page, feel free
to reply to your post yourself, with the word *bump* in the text. This will *bump* your post back up to the top of the board.
- If you haven't yet, take a peek at out Newbies Section.
Everything that you need to know is in that forum, for the most part! It's a lot of reading, we know, but this credit stuff can have a steep learning curve. In no time, you'll be posting like the pros!
- If you find that someone is discourteous to you, use the REPORT button at the bottom of every post - that will ensure that a moderator or admin looks at the post and decides if it is against the TOS.
- Off -topic posts should go in the General Forum.
Again, welcome to the CreditBoards family!

If you want.. send them an unknown debt letter.. there is a sample in the sample letter section.
Thanks I will do that.
