Can collection agencies use other peoples private line #'s( that are identified on caller ID) to contact you?
Is it legal for a collection agency to use private phone numbers to identify themselves on the caller ID? I have received many calls from all over the country that are from different types of lines (i.e. private cell phone numbers, the EPA's number). Is this legal? I was under the impression that, by law, they have to identify themselves. I would like to turn the tables on these fraudulant collection agencies. What are my chances?
