Break down of what is being said up above. Yes, it's a Zombie debt. They can't sue you, they can't report it to the CRAs. It will not appear on your credit.
All they can do is ask you to pay. That's it.
My best advice? You may not like it. Send a settlement offer for like $40 or so. To make the debt go away. Otherwise it just gets thrown from bottom feeder to bottom feeder.
Other than that, you can just send a cease and desist like Robert said. They can't contact you, but they can sell it to another CA.
