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.
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
