Re: Question. Just got a call about old debt

[ Edited ]

Its a local credit union not a collection agency that is calling. The amount is only $421 so If I had to pay it I will pay it. But I dont want to do anything until I know I have to. I dont know the dates of anything since it was so long ago. She wouldnt give me any information or any dates.

You can see the law here:

Point them to that and tell them to pound sand...


Again, those are laws (Statutes of Limitations) which govern how long they have to sue.  I think (and forgive me if I am wrong) but they orignial poster said the case has already gone to judgment and therefore he was already sued, possibliy within those time frames.  If its a judgment, now they can collect how ever long they want --depends on the amount if they will go to the expense of writs of execution.  (Im an attorney and can attest they can be very expensive-- probalby wouldnt do if its a $500 judgment, might if its several thousands)

 

I would ask that they provide a copy of the judgment so you know if they really have one!


Sorry about that one, I missed the "judgement" comment from the OP.  That does make a big difference to this discussion.

 

It also sounds as though the OP has confirmed the judgement in his latest post.

I would pay it. If you have to set up payments do so as they will not go forward with the judgement as long as you have an agreement.

 

I also apoligize about missing the judgement comment, I didn't see it.

I would also recommend the same.  Thre stress alone of this cannot be worth $421.  This sounds like a "lump" you are going to need to take.  By the way, you can forgo the sand comment recommended earlier.  :manembarrassed:

Re: Question. Just got a call about old debt

Just pay it or at the very least see if they will accept like 75% of the balance and call it quits, nothing to lose by asking. Don't know your financial situation but what you owe is better than owing thousands $$ plus court costs..
