Snaptastic: On a slightly related note, I have issues with another Snaptastic in the UK, who is using my email address for lots of things because she isn't very bright. I ended up watching her attempts to register with job-hunting sites (she can't activate the accounts), buying enough things to know that she has a kid, and even where she lives. I sent her a snail-mail letter with all the stuff she linked to my email. She changed some, but still occasionally uses my email address.

Now she has a collection agency trying to collect a debt. I flat out told them they have the wrong Snaptastic, since I am in the US and know that I don't owe them anything.

They don't care, and keep trying to bargain with me. It is getting downright laugh-worthy.

...and they are not as threatening as US collections agencies, which makes it funnier.



There's several people that have made the mistake of using my email address or phone number. Once, I don't care, everyone slips up and types something wrong occasionally, but there's a few people that they're clearly using mine as their throw-aways. Fine, but your reservation for a hotel room in Aspen over the holiday two years ago was upgraded to the grand suite, and your rental car cancelled. Oh, and Miss former small town elected representative that uses my phone number, sorry about your test results and your follow up appointment getting cancelled.

Curious. Would anyone in a position of authority care if someone wasted the entire company with automatic weapons? As an object lesson?

I want to make sure you get my payment. Where are your offices? I'll deliver it in person.

Midwest Recovery Systems

That name sounds familiar. I think that's the company that came after me for a $51 hospital bill. I never got the bill, or any notice, and they turned it right over (this particular hospital is famous for that). So of course I tell them I never got it. They don't believe me because everybody says that. So I say, send me the bill and I'll pay it. The guy wasn't sure what to say for a second. I guess that never happens?
