Collection for Veterinarian bill
My friend has received collection papers for a veterinarian bill that she has nothing to do with. Her family had three dogs and one time they all escaped the house and got hit by a car. Some of her family members (not her) then took the dogs to the vet to get them looked at. Those family members obviously didn't pay the bill and now the collection agency is after her even though she didn't take them to the vet or sign anything when they were taken there. She believes that her name came up for the dogs because she took at least one of the dogs to get their shots one time (which she paid for) before the accident happened. She also believes that the dogs weren't registered under her name either. So she is wondering how she can get this off her name and credit, if at all possible? Can someone even bill her for that?
It's already late in the process because she was due in court last month which she didn't attend.
