: I am 18 now and I just got a letter from a debt collection agency for a hospital fee from when I had under bite correction surgery last year.



The bill totals to $31,965.04

What do I do? I was a minor at the time and I never signed any contracts or anything.

Any help would be appreciated.
Edit:

Thanks Go with the glow.

But actually, my mom didn't sign off of the surgery, neither did I. It was my grandmother whom I live with. But I will check my credit and send them a letter. However, I am leaving for basic on July 3rd and probably won't be able to communicate any further.

: You are not legally responsible.
They cannot sue you or touch you.
Just make sure that everything you do is done by mail.
Phone calls do nothing, absolutely nothing.
Reply to that debt collection agency by letter stating that you were a minor at the time, never signed anything, and you are not legally responsible.
Keep a copy. This could take time to resolve.

Get your 3 credit reports at
Annual Credit Report https://www.annualcreditreport /cra/index.jsp
No credit/ debit card required. Do not be tempted to pay for an useless score.
You want to review your 3 reports line by line.
Do not give up on this step.

I would call mom. This is also showing up on her credit reports.
She is the one responsible for her son's bill.
