Need some advice about collections in Florida

Hi- I am having a problem with Gillete and Paul. They have been calling my mother's house- I called them last week and gave them my number- they still called my mom's house today. But that is not what I need the help with. I sent them a debt validation letter today- then received a call finally at my number. I did some research here online this weekend and found out that Florida statues are for 5 years on a written account which is what credit cards are right- it's an old household bank account- that I'm almost positive I paid off years ago. Am I right about it being 5 years because this lady from Gillette said I was wrong and that it is 20 years. She also told me last week that the last payment was April 2003-today she told me that that is not what she told me- she says it is Oct 2003 now.
Can someone please verify that it is 5 years for me? Also any other advice? I don't have any records from back then either.
