Palisades Collections robo called me with a debt by someone with the same name. They requested that I enter my social security number on my telephone pad. Who would enter their social security number into the phone to a collection agency , or for any reason, whatsoever?
When I phoned the number they left, they still asked me for the last four numbers of my SS number, which I was still reluctant about. Especially, since the collector would not give me any information concerning the debt. He said he was afraid of breaking the law.
Warning to the wise. Do not give up your social security number to anyone you do not know. Especially, collection agencies, unless you want false information added to your credit report.
