My wife got a call from afni collections regarding a bill that they said was from Verizon that was dated several months after we moved from where that phone service was. When my wife told the woman to send her a detailed validation she was told that all the law required was the total. Well thanks to this site my wife knows better. Then she wanted my wife to go to a "grocery store" to receive a fax. Yeah right.
I went on line and look what I found. Holey Moley!
Check out this link about them.

Big junk debt scam of afni collection agency. It was no coincidence that they tried to change the date. Statute of limitations had run out on this in a few months ago if she owes it at all. I am getting tired of sending validation letters to afni collections but here we go again.
Beware of afni collections scam! This is a huge scam by a company that apparently is trying to climb out of thier own financial mess!

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the pay off amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
