A viewer says her credit report is spotless, but she keeps getting calls from collection agencies trying to collect a debt. She wants to know why the calls are happening and how to stop them. Consumer Attorney Sonya Smith-Valentine says:
There could be more than one reason for the calls. If the consumer has a common name, the debt collectors might be confusing her with another person of the same name. If this is the case, unfortunately, there is no way to stop the calls.
The calls could also be a sign of identity theft. Smith-Valentine recommends checking all three credit reports to make sure there isn’t fraudulent activity.
And if suspicious activity is found, consumers should contact the creditors right away to close the fraudulent accounts. Also, place a credit freeze on all credit reports to prevent further damage from being done.
The next viewer wants to know, what’s the difference between brown eggs and white eggs? The American Egg Board told us:
The color of the egg is based on the color of the chicken. So brown chickens lay brown eggs, and white chickens lay white eggs.
There is no nutritional difference between the two.
Although white eggs are more popular in most of the U.S., brown eggs are more prominent in the Northeast.
