Man accused of debt and crimes because of his name

Posted: Updated:
HILLSBORO, TN (WSMV) -

There are two Jason Davidsons. They share the same birth month and year. 

Jason M. Davidson is a stay at home dad who rarely leaves Coffee County.

Jason E. Davidson lives in Dayton, OH. He's a career criminal who owes a lot of people a lot of money.  

Yet the bill collectors keep calling Jason M. Davidson. 

"We're getting harassed, and harassed, and harassed and it just keeps on," said Davidson's wife, Tammy Davidson. 

It's a horrible case of either mistaken identity or identity theft and it's gotten unbearable.

"It's like a full time job," Jason Davidson said.

They've been getting calls about the other guy from credit card companies, the Ohio Department of Corrections, the Ohio Power Plant, an emergency room in Florida and they've also received several red light traffic tickets.

"You cannot even tell in words how frustrating it is and it's been going on for years," Jason Davidson said. 

Recently Jason Davidson received a bill from a bill collector representing Avis car rental for more than $15,000. Next, a letter saying they can never rent a car from Avis or Budget again.

"I guess we'll just take a taxi because my rights have been terminated supposedly," Jason Davidson said.

At this point, renting a car is the very least of this family's concerns.

"I mean his driver's license could get pulled, I mean it could hit his credit score," Tammy Davidson said.

What they want is their lives back.

"I'm not the guy you're looking for! Go to Ohio and find him in Ohio," Jason Davidson said.

"He's not a convict. He pays his bills. He hasn't wrecked and totaled a car. I mean, please, stop," Tammy Davidson said.

Channel 4 made calls all day on Wednesday and didn't get anywhere with Avis. A representative for the bill collecting company listed on the top of the $15,000 bill said he would start looking into the situation.
