Contact the apartments and tell them you have a letter stating you moved and your lease would not be renewed.
It is against the law for CAs to be harrassing and threatening things they can not do or have no intention of doing.

I asked for information pertaining to the debt and she told me that she was adding a note to my file that I am refusing to give her information and it would cost me more in the long run. (and you added a mental note that she's a witch!)
YOU are under no order to give them ANY information of any kind...ever. They cannot call you and harass you either.
I would definitely call the apt manager & see if you can't get this cleared up.
Shoutout to the pros....would a C & D be in order here???

OK this may be a stupid question, and I hope it never happens to me, but what do you do if a CA harrasses you? If someone calls and is belligerant or harrassing/threatening, should you just hang up?
Is there anything adverse they can do if you don't listen to them?
This is all very scary to me

So I called the management company to discuss the phone call I received from the CA about rent a month and a year after I typed a letter of notification and personally handed in the key for the house a year earlier. The management states that my letter was unsatisfactory because they have no way of knowing if my roommates knew I was no longer going to be living at the location. So my name remained on the lease until my roommates decided THEY wanted to move despite my interaction with the office and my notification that I will not be renewing. What????!!!! So for a whole year my letter was unsatisfactory and I was not notified of such. So to counter their agrument I ask well how did you know that I knew about the other two roommates moving when they notified you. To this the representative says well they turned in their keys, I say well I turned in my keys as well. SO obviously I got no where with the management company. (How convient 2 years after I moved I'm hit with a debt for a place I did not stay in during the month and now they tell me my letter was unsatisfactory). So I decided to call the CA to get a little more info about the debt of course they only wanted my info and were not offering to tell me anything. I gave them Nothing...just pissed them off more...So this is without a benefit of a doubt going to court.
So I have a couple of questions for those of you who are familiar with judgements. Would it be in my best interest to take this matter to court? If the judge holds me accountable for 1/3 of the rent could I bring a money order to pay the collection attorney to vacate the judgement on spot? How hard is it to vacate judgements once they are decided upon? Is there any way to DV a CA without showing your address?? Are there any other options out there??
