    Call the credit card. You can pay them too unless they sold the debt.  Collection agency still gets their cut.

    There are a lot of scams out there, so. Wait until you get another call, then tell them to send you all of the information on the debt in the US Mail and to STOP calling you.   If/when you get the envelope you can get to setting up payment to pay if legit.

    If I were you I would physically go into the bank branch that issued you your credit card and ask someone there.
