The original caller is a middle-man company for a collection agency. The middle man company can break any law they want because they aren't actually the collection agency. This middle man can call you at any time, they can threaten, they can call people collection agencies can't call (like neighbors, friends, family) and discuss your debt with them. When you call the number 855-258-3652, it redirects you to the actual collections agency.
If the debt is real, I cannot honor it because the collections company is skirting the law by hiring this middle man/company to do the illegal dirty work. The middle man company hides its phone number, so I'm guessing it will be difficult to track down who they really are. The ultimate debt collector in my case was Regency Collection Agency. I have received nothing in the mail, and there is no validation of this supposed debt. I am unaware of owing anyone money at this point, so without written validation of this debt they will simply have to keep trying to scam me.
Whether this is purely a scam or just a sleazy new way to collect real debt we may never know. Be careful everyone!
