Old Debt in Alaska

by Freddie
(Anchorage alaska)

I had a credit card from an store, not a store credit card but a credit card, been getting phone calls with threats. This debt is pretty old and I paid the card off before they cancelled it. What can I do? Is there a age limit of a debt?

Statute of Limitations
by: DebtCollectionAnswers.com

There is a statute of limitations in each state. Our understanding is that in Alaska it is three years for open accounts and six years for written accounts. It's not clear whether the calls you are getting are from a debt collector or from the store itself. If it's a third party debt collector,
you can read our information about sending cease and desist letter to stop a debt collector. If it's the store itself and the debt is too old, you may want to let them know that and inform them that you will be reporting them to your state attorney general's office and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. (And follow through with that.)
