Statute of limitations – debt at least 8 to 10 years old
April 30th, 2015 by Questions
I have old debt that is at least 8 to 10 years old. I’ve been contacted for the first time in at least five years or more (in which a letter was sent to my old address but I never responded as they didn’t have a number but only an address and I lost the message). They contacted me via the phone. I didn’t answer so they left a message. The company didn’t say what they’re calling about. Their name is debt control agency which I’m assuming is a collection agency. And I’m wondering if I should even consider speaking to them as this is a very old debt probably the last time I talked to someone was sometime in 2005 or 2006. During this period, I lived out of province and had only been back in the last few years. I’m wondering because the debt is so old if I call them will it begin the statute of limitations I doubt that they’ll be able to take me to court as it’s been almost ten years. Looking forward to your response.
