Do these papers have your apartment number on them? Do they specify the periods for which the landlord is claiming rent, and the date of a lease?
Someone at the managing agent's office may have found the arrears and thought that it was from a current tenant. Keep calling the managing agent's office, but also write to them, by regular mail, with a certificate of mailing, and by certified mail, return receipt requested, telling them about the mistake. You might also call the landlord's attorneys, whose name should be on the papers, and let them know about the error.
