My question involves child support in the State of: GA
Hi everyone. Apologies if this is posted in the wrong section. My ex has a large unpaid medical bill for our child who is a minor. Although the bill is in his name he associated my phone number with it. He has not set up a payment plan and now I am getting automated phone calls from debt collectors with my child's name.
My questions are:
1. Is this a valid call or a hoax number? 1-877-795-9819. I have only listened to the voicemail and haven't answered it. It goes something like this:
THIS IS A CALL FOR XYZ. IF YOU ARE NOT XYZ PLEASE HANG UP. BY LISTENING TO THIS MESSAGE YOU CONFIRM THAT YOU ARE XYZ. THERE IS A DEBT FOR XYZ FROM OPTIMUM OUTCOMES. PLEASE CALL THIS NUMBER.
2. If valid and the bill remains unpaid can this affect the credit rating of my child later in life or will the debt remain solely with the father?
Thanks in advance
XYZ= CHILD NAME
