Colector wants me to pay a debt I do not owe

On or about November 18, 2013 I received a letter from Wakefield & Associates about a debt incurred by Tommy Brown on June 28, 2011 from Air EVAC EMS for $2,030.93. I contacted them immediately and told them I do not know a Tommy Brown. They said that I, Betty Brown, signed for the bill. Again I said I do not know Tommy Brown and did not sign for him nor have I ever met anyone by this name. Following the phone call, I wrote them a letter again reiterating the same information.
Today, January 31, 2014, Shaun(?)from Wakefield & Associates called me again about the debt. For the third time, I told him I do not know nor have I ever met Tommy Brown. He said something about me being married to Tommy Brown. I told him my husband was in the other room and would he like to talk to him. He said that I signed the papers as a grantor for the bill and why would the papers have my phone number and address. I told him I had no idea why my information was on the agreement. I also reminded him that "Betty Brown" is a very common name and to compare the signature from my letter I sent them to the signature on the invoice. He said he wasn't a hand writing expert. I feel I am being harassed for this bill that I did not incur and know nothing about.
What are my options?
