    Possible scam, and could this affect my credit score?

    This company called The Pimsleur Approach sent me a letter claiming that I subscribed to some service of theirs, and now I need to pay about $250. I never ordered or signed up for anything. I looked into this company and it has a lot of people complaining about it, that they use deceptive marketing and mislead people about how much they will be billed, etc. From what I read, there is no point in trying to talk to customer service.

    I don't know how they got my name and address. Thankfully they don't have any of my credit card information. Could I just ignore their letters? Or could this possibly affect my credit score?

    I would call and figure out why, and try to get this sorted if you had the time. They have your address and really would only need your SS# from here to send it to collections.

    Just call, say you never signed up for anything, never received anything, and that you ain't paying shit.

    If they say you did I would get a credit report and make sure your identity hasn't been compromised.

    Alright I'll call them. I don't see how they could have my SS#. So if they don't have it, they can't force me to pay?

    Senex: No I did not.

    Do.Not.Give.Them.Information. They have your name and address? Well calling them will give them your phone number. They might also talk you into giving them your SS# or something else. If you didn't use their services just ignore them.

    just get a credit report and see if you have had any hits in the last few months.
