What to Do if You’re Contacted About a Time-Barred Debt
If you receive a call or letter about a time-barred debt, it may feel like an intimidating experience. A time-barred debt is one that has passed the statute of limitations in your state, which means that creditors can no longer legally collect on it. It’s important to understand your rights when dealing with this kind of debt so that you don’t get taken advantage of. Here are some steps you should take if you have been contacted about a time-barred debt:
First and foremost, do not panic. You may be tempted to pay the creditor out of fear without researching further into what they are asking for. However, by doing so, you might inadvertently reset the statute of limitations and open yourself up to legal action again down the line.
