Can't tell if I am being sued. YANML, but do I need one?

A debt collector sent a written notice to my Post Office box saying that I am being sued in the Superior Court of San Francisco, and requested a physical address to serve papers. However, I cannot find any case with my name on it in the SF Superior Court's database (here, under "Name Search Query"
). The notice is also suspicious because the docket number is "to be assigned" and no date of trial is given. I think this is just an attempt to get a physical address and I am not really being sued. How can I be sure?

I don't need responses re: disputing the debt, what / how much it's for, why I'm a bad person for not paying it, etc. I just want to figure out, based on this sparse written notice, if I am actually being sued. If I am, I will contact a lawyer for assistance.
