How Far Back Can A Debt Be Collected?
I got a call from an agency that said they represented Verizon wireless and that I had a past due amount with them, going back to 2001 for $1907.04. I did have an phone with Verizon but changed plans around that time. I'm sure i paid the bill off but I have no records going back that far.
In addition, it was a single phone plan, the bill was never more that 60 or 70 dollars a month. I would never have run up a bill that high. I asked for proof just to buy some time, I have to submit a request for it in writing. Can they go back this far in time? How will i be able to prove its paid off?
