Q: Debt collector gave me fake account number and said I owed an amount that was less than I owed what do I do ?

Debt collector gave me fake account number. original clinic said that the account number they gave me isn’t the one they have on file. The clinic gave me the actual account number that the collection agency has. I then called back the collection agency and then said that account number and it was a higher amount. Is there anything I can do ? I have the recordings.
