Cont’d attempts collect debt not owed

I was receiving a number of automated messages on my answering machine that spoke vaguely about some unpaid debt. When I called the number back and inquired I was told the debt ( in the amount of {$760.00} XXXX was an unpaid medical debt dating back to 2007. When I asked about the specifics of the debt and what is was for all they could tell me was the date and location XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX. I then called the hospital to inquire about this unpaid debt and they said I had no unpaid through them. I called back the debt collector and they said they would send me a letter detailing exactly what the debt was for. I did receive this letter, but again, it did not state what the specifics of the medical bill were for, but expalined how I could pay the bill, which included a self-addressed envelope. While I was present at the hospital on this date, I was full insured at the time, and was never notified prior to this about this supposed unpaid debt, which is over 7 years old! I strongly suspect this was a fraudulent attempt at collecting money on an old medical charge that has already been paid.
