If they called you and you didn't call them, and they indicate they are from a collections agency should they not identify who they're calling on behalf?
I don't want to give out critical personal info with all the identity theft scams you hear about to someone I didn't contact and don't know.
If they truly are collecting on behalf of a client they should be able to indicate the name of the business they are collecting for. If it's a debt owed to "ABCDEF" company and you've never heard or dealt with "ABCDEF" company, you should recognize if it's a scam or not right away.
If they called you they should have more than just your phone number. Just have them send a letter outlining their request to your address. If it's a scam you'll get nothing, but if it is an actual collection agency there is no reason you should not receive something in the mail.
They will probably just aggressively say you need to verify certain information first, and in cases like this I would just hang up and block that number.

Call from 011 86 681-71294, which "might" mean the originating number is 1-866-817-1294. The caller id just indicated United States as the name! I receive them almost every day. Four or five days ago a rep from the same number asked if I was this person I'd never heard of; I said I'm not them and they said they'd take the name off the file but I still get calls. I took the call yesterday and an automated message said to call 1-866-817-1294 referencing a file number but I couldn't recall the number. The other option was to press 1 to be connected to an agent. They wanted credit card info and confirm my date of birth and phone number. I said I don't truly know who this is so can't give out personal information. I don't know why they a "collection company" would call as I have no outstanding debts. They said in a harsh manner "I'll note you as being uncooperative"! Wtf? I hung up.

I just had this number call me. It was automated at first and it called out some long number really fast (No time to write it down). I got transferred to some guy who explains that I'm being recorded and that he wanted to talk to me (Acting really aggressive). He knew my full name and my number - Obviously.

I have record on my phone as well and I let him know that I was also recording.... Okay, so then he says that he wants me to give him my date of birth. So I replied, "Why should I tell you that" "You should already know since you are calling me".

He gets really angry and say something that he needed it for confirmation. And if I was not going to comply.... Hangup !

They even go so far as have their recorded parts in French and English. I just called them back and they put me through to an answering machine... These people are sketchy. I don't know if they are real or not but they can send me a letter first !!
