Hello, I got a phone call on Monday saying that I owe aprox. $863 for Direct TV, phone and internet and that my services were shut off at my house in Goodyear, AZ. Problem is I do not have these services, live in NJ, and never been to AZ.
Someone got a hold of my social, but spelled my last name wrong and got these services. I filed a police report but they still keep calling! after I gave them the report number. I am beyond freaked out. I am thinking this has to do with my payday loan days as I do not know how else someone could have gotten this info.
The police werent much help, is there anything else i could do?




Is Direct TV the one calling or is it a 3rd party collector? Check out the info here:

Download the ID theft affadavit, have it notorized and send it along with the police report to Direct TV.

It was collections, I have spoken to both of them though. I cannot believe this happened - all the way across country, too!

The police report should be enough for a CA. They don't get a choice in the matter. They have to accept it. Are they reporting on your CR's?

I pulled a report in August and there was nothing unusual. do you think it's too soon to pull it again? or should I wait a month or so for it to hit?

I would. You are allowed to pull reports if you are a victim of IDT.

Good to know, thank you so much. This is crazy to me, I have no idea why anyone would even want my credit - i even had a 2006 bankruptcy!

Thanks again for everyone's help.. the collectors called again today but it seems like i have spoken to someone better at direct tv, they said they filed a fraud ticket for me and i ordered a copy of the police report.

do not speak to the collector until you get the police report.then you can deal with them better.

thanks - i don't plan on ever speaking to them again, i actually blocked them. i dont get why they keep calling a NJ number for someone who they think lives in AZ!! it's still so crazy to me, i called the company direct and they said the collectors should stop calling, but i doubt it so i ended up blocking them.
