This is a place that is partially scam, partially legit. If you have even a little debt at a gym, they get your name. They are not in this country so it's hard to say whether they are actually tied to the little debt, Knowing this won't make it easier to deal with them I know but it may give you some ammunition to find out who at your gym gave them the info on you because that's what happened. This info is not air and does not just float around- your gym somehow, maybe unintentionally, put your debt info in a place where these people got wind of it. I told these people that I paid the little debt and they did not like that. I'm sure they had their hearts set on more than the $27 I owe the gym.
