Proving an alias is NOT me

Many years ago an ins co i was not doing business with solicited me with a different version of my name. After that solicitation the name become connected to me as an alias. Ive tried to have it removed without any luck. Ive now (oct 2019) received a collection letter (for this alias) from a 10+ year old case with an $18,000. judgement against this alias. This is NOT my account. The judgement and account do not show in my credit history, however, the collection company is aggressively pursuing this. How do i prove that this is not my account (in spite of the alias connected to me?)
