I recently received a email regarding drs collecting an outstanding bill from eBay from 2019. As far as I was concerned this bill got payed by myself. I received no letter from DRS just an email telling me to pay in full or make a bank transfer to a HSBC bank account which I found odd. I rang the number and it asked my security questions of the address of the eBay account and my name. The man on the phone knew the details of what was sold on the account and said the bill was attempted to be payed in 2019 but bounced back with PayPal and they have only just realised now 4 years later. I have not received a phone call from them since and that was 3 weeks ago just texts saying “ (Removed by Forum Team), download your important letter re: @(Removed by Forum Team). You will be asked security questions to open it.” The fella on the phone also processed to tell me if I DON’T pay it will not affect my credit score and no bay lifters will show up to the address.
When this eBay account was made I was only 16 at the time so I legally wasn’t allowed to have an eBay account I told the fella this on the phone and he said because I’m over 18 now I have to pay the debt.
Just need advice on this as it doesn’t seem right but I’m also confused on how they know so much information about it.
