I found a collection letter sent to mom from Kevin B. Wilson Law Offices dated July 24, 2012. The bill is for $2,712.30 and shows Florida Hospital Deland as the payee. There is a “debt number” on the bill that matches the one on the bill from North American Credit Services, Inc., the place I called earlier this morning.
I called anyway to be thorough and because the amount is not exactly the same. The woman who answered the phone there said she could not find any information about the debt number I gave her; she said that it was, “so old that it’s been transferred.” Then she gave me the number for North American Credit Services, Inc. and told me to call them about it.
I told her that I thought it was probably the same bill, and that I had just talked to them, but she either didn’t care or didn’t really pay attention to me, because she simply told me I should call them to deal with it.
I thanked her and hung up. I’m going to simply assume that this was an attempt to collect on the same debt and disregard it.
