A collections agent sent me someone else's information. How can I use this as leverage against them?

I posted a question
about responding to a collection agency a couple weeks ago and got some very good advice. When I asked for proof of debt, they sent it. Only it was someone else's. Now that I have this info, what do I do with it? Ideally I'd like to:
1. Use it as leverage to get out of the debt.
2. Make sure my
info hasn't been sent to someone else.
Do I return it and keep copies? Do I try to notify the person whose info I have?
