Anyway to get her removed?

I have recently been getting collection calls for my ex husbands first ex-wife. My ex and I have been divorced for 8 years and they have been divorced for 18 years. I decided to do a search of my name on various websites and have discovered she is now coming up as a relative. I regularly do these types of searches and have never seen her come up on one before. Is there anyway I can get her removed as a relative or do I just have to keep telling these people that I do not know where she is as I haven't seen her in 8 years?

  • tell them she is your husbands ex wife, not your ex wife, you have no connection to her or the debt. Stop Calling

  • Tell them you have no idea where she may be or how to get a hold of her, and if they keep calling you'll file harassment charges.

  • That's what I've been telling them so far. But I don't know what this woman is doing, but she's in it deep! I've talked to my ex husband and he said he's being getting numerous calls as well. Their children are adults, so he has no more dealing with her either. I'm just getting tired of all the calls. Everytime I tell one collector that I don't know where she is, I hope it's the last one, but then another one calls. And I absolutely hate the condescening "Oh, so you SAY you are not related and you don't know where she is. Is there ANYWAY you can get a message to her?"

  • I would tell them to remove me from their 'list' and not to call anymore.

  • With some companies (maybe all??) you can file a Cease and Decest, its kind of a pain, but it will stop the calls.

  • whereever u see it maybe theres a number on the website to call.

  • well you could get their information as far as address and city and state and zip code and her reference number and write them a do not contact letter to have them stop calling you. that worked for me.
