Certainly do NOT give them any personal info. Let THEM give you the personal info. In other words, ask what is the Social Security Number of the person they are trying to contact. Nope, sorry guys, that's not my number. You have the wrong person. Do not call me again or I will file a complaint.

If they won't give you that, tell them that you are simply not the person they are looking for, and that person has never lived at this address. They are looking for John Q. Doe and you are John F. Dow. Obviously, you are not the person they are looking for.

Absolutely do NOT give them your Date of Birth, Social Security Number or any other legal identifiers.
