Question posted in the General Law category relating to KwaZulu-Natal

want to ask about a sex chat hotline that is harrassing me ,claiming that i owe them R1650 and that they recorded my sex call and that i gave them the wrong name(which any person who wants to stay anonymous would do) and they calim the terms were read to me in the beginning of the call which i could'nt hear at all. So now they are saying if i dont pay them by today they are going to make a case of fraud against me for not giving my correct name.,also they got all my personal details and i dont know where they got it from as well as my family members contact details. The cellphone number was posted on a chat website not as an add. I thought it is a free call . Can they proceed with legal action against me ? Should i pay them anything?
