I received a collection notice from an agency stating that I owed a bill for $45. I called the orginal company, they say I have $0 due.
Back to the agency, they stated that the orig. company would not have a record of the account because they sold it for collections, yet in the next breath, said that they would contact the company to get proof that I owe the debt. Highly annoying.
They stated that this debt is from a bill in Feb 2003. I live in MD. I believe the statue of limitations is 3 yrs. So, my questions are:
what happens if i pay the debt? i.e. does it hit my credit report?
Should I even pay it.?
What happens if I do pay it? I’m admitting that I owed it when there’s no proof.
This is the first I’ve heard of this bill being owed. The agency claimed that it has been bounced around collection agencies for 3 years. yeah right. I am debt free, jerk weed. Ok I’m back to myself now.
I asked them to verify the debt, they said it would take 30 days to get documentation and send it to me. Sounds like they are just trying to say it is late and add fees.
Collectors always lie. They believe that you are lying scum and should be treated like dirt. Everything they tell you is a lie. They are not going to sue you they are not going to take this debt off of your report all they will do is tak your money and report it. They take the money and it stays on your report. Don’t trust any collector. If you want to pay, send it to the original debtor and make them move the money to other agencies
