I suspect a Collection agency is calling my friend's house 1-2 times a week asking for me. My friend tells them I do not live there. (I don't know what gave those people the idea to call my friend) The caller is Riverview Asset Management. 866-620-5498
I called the number my friend provided, and that's who it was, and got a recording saying they were assisting other people, and for me to hold. I hung up. I don't believe I owe a debt, except one for over $5,000 to a doctor, and I have an agreement to pay them $40 a month, because I am on disability. That debt began in 2001. Also, I just checked my credit report, and did not find any collection agencies on there. I had a fair score, too.
I have a mental illness, and I have anxiety and depression. I am afraid to contact the agency myself, because I am afraid what they might say.
Why are they calling my friend, asking for me? If I owe a debt, the one I owe the debt to should have my mailing address and phone number, because it hasn't changed for over 20 years. Why won't they contact me at my home, instead of pestering my friend?
I told my friend when they call again, to tell them to stop calling.
P.S. as far as I know, I have no other debts,(I don't receive any bills that I do not pay) and I do not have a credit card, use Tracfone, and live with my father, so I have no assets. I am on SSDI.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
