Collector Has Me Confused With My Father

by Pat
(Corona, California, USA)

A lawyer is coming after me for a medical debt incurred when I was under aged and under my father's insurance and roof. That debt was included in my fathers bankruptcy. It was about $2,000. The lawyer now claims it is $25,000. Since me and my dad have the same name and last name, they have him as an AKA on the court order. This lawyer has gone into my accounts several times and has taken over $10,000 from me. How do I make him stop? This is not my debt and it is not fair.
