A debt collector can tell you and is required by the FTC to provide you in writing the name of the person or company you owe the money to, the amount of the debt, and what you can do if you think you do not owe the debt. If you need to know more information about debt's you owe,contact the FTC.

"If a collector contacts you about a debt, you may want to talk to them at least once to see if you can resolve the matter - even if you don't think you owe the debt, can't repay it immediately, or think that the collector is contacting you by mistake. If you decide after contacting the debt collector that you don't want the collector to contact you again, tell the collector - in writing - to stop contacting you. Here's how to do that: Make a copy of your letter. Send the original by certified mail, and pay for a "return receipt" so you'll be able to document what the collector received. Once the collector receives your letter, they may not contact you again, with two exceptions: a collector can contact you to tell you there will be no further contact or to let you know that they or the creditor intend to take a specific action, like filing a lawsuit. Sending such a letter to a debt collector you owe money to does not get rid of the debt, but it should stop the contact. The creditor or the debt collector still can sue you to collect the debt. "

No, the collector is not legally obligated to present such information. Under the FDCPA the collector must inform the debtor that account information will be forwarded if the debtor sends a written request within 30 days of receiving the collection notice.
