Kent Hughes

I keep getting these calls to call Kent Hughes at 888 249 1037. Thing is, I know who Kent Hughes is - the word for this sort of individual is "scammer". He claims to be a collection agency for old debts. Debts which never existed. Then if you're dumb enough to pay, he uses your signature and SSN to steal your identity.

I have received these calls and he claims he is looking for my ex wife in an attempt to collect on some old debts. I believe he is legit as my ex is heavily in debt and has skipped on all of them. Problem is, they have a contract with a company that tracks individuals for them and supplies them with a number. I changed my number a year ago and my ex’s name appears nowhere in the directory. She has not lived here for almost 4 years yet they continue to supply my number as hers.

He's definitely not legit. Google him. When he was calling me - he's since given up - I was no longer in debt.
You don't need to be legit to get someone's phone number, even unlisted. It's basic private detective work.
Anyway, thanks for posting a comment.
