i just got an email from my FIL saying that a bill collector called my MIL's cell phone looking for my mother. my mother lives at least 18 hours away from them, has never met them, and doesn't even know their phone numbers. its not even programmed in my cell b/c i just found out their new cell numbers. is there a way that somehow if a company did a search and my name came up as her daughter, and their name came up as my in laws that they would call them? i mean this makes no sense whatsoever, my mom isn't and has never been the type to give out a diff phone number, and the chances of it being an accident, very slim. so anyone work for collections agencies or know how this could have happened? i'm so thrown right now and kinda annoyed w/the way my FIL phrased things.Answer Question

The people that had my last phone number before it was reassigned to us apparently left the area owing money to everybody. I kept getting phone calls from bill collectors wanting their money, and some of them refused to believe I wasn't the wife of that family. The end came when a particularly abusive one called and I hit the button for speaker phone. My husband listened to a couple of minutes of this, hung up on the bill collector and instantly called the phone company and got our number changed. He said there was no way I had to listen to that sort of abuse in my own home! I have never had people call my relatives, friends or family, or call me looking for others.
