Re: CA call for debt that's not mine.

+1  I've notice people getting too jumpy with the cease and desist letters.  These are last resort measures, not something you swing at with the first pitch.  Use the DV method, not only does it stop the calls, it puts the collection in limbo until verified.  If it does turn out to be a validated debt, you've shot yourself in the foot and send them a big card saying "SUE ME".  Send the DV first, investigate what it is.
