Just got a call from a collections agency she was trying to get me to verify my address and date of birth and of course I wouldn't. She then told me that it was a law that I had to verify before she could continue said it was a "privacy act".

 

I told her I wasn't going to verify anything and she hung up on me.

Almost 10 years ago when I had to go through BK, I had the same experience. I’d get a call claiming that it was a CA, but they’d want to verify info the same info. Some even asked for my SSN. I’m sure most, maybe even all, of the calls were legit, but I’d never give that info to someone calling me. 

 

Instead, tell them that you won’t verify any information over the phone. Also tell them that any correspondence will need to be done in writing through the mail. Remember, if it’s in writing you have proof. If they tell you something untrue over the phone it’ll be near impossible to prove later on. 

 

And if you do get something in writing, as hege said, don’t call them. Put everything in writing and keep a copy of everything you send.
