I was unable to pay a credit card debt about 15 years ago & it was turned into collections.I did not respond to them because I had no money or a job. It was turned into the credit reporting Companies & stayed on my report for 7 years.I already paid the price w/ bad credit for all that time.
Now I get a letter from a collection agency saying that I still owe the debt and that serious financial decisions are now in my court. Can they legally get the $$ from me by attaching my bank accounts 15 years after the fact?
Who do I need to contact to see if the statue of limitations has run out. Should I close my bank accounts just in case? Any & all responses from you will be greatly appreciated.
