1. This is a public forum of other customers, not DirecTV support. Remove personal info for your privacy and protection, per the forum rules. Be more careful where you post personal information as that is how a lot of identity theft happens.


2. Submit dispute to their fraud/identity theft team: www.directv.com/notmyaccount


3. Contact the collection agency to settle as well since they own the balance. They have to prove you owe the debt. This may not be a quick process, but must be cleared with them since DirecTV no longer owes that outstanding balance.

This is a customer to customer forum not DTV support so we can't do anything with your account, you have to call DTV.
