Luckily it was only $600 and I settled it. However the Lawyer I spoke with told me that he is seeing an increase in this way of collecting on old debts and legally the judgement can stay on as a new entry. I point this out as I have seen some discussions that letting sleeping dogs lie is a good thing. Well it seems those sleeping dogs might be waking up just in time to try and bite you in the a$$.
