I recently received a debt collector letter in regards to a debt from 2002. I have never received anything in the past and I am trying to figure out if I need to pay this or not. What are the statue of limitations in Colorado and can the debt be renewed after a certain amount of time?

Written = 6 years

You need to send a dv ltr to verify that this debt is indeed yours and that this company is legally able to collect on it. By the looks of your sol 6 years is this year...what month are they trying to collect from?

What kind of debt is it do you even know?

If the SOL has expired the only thing that can renew it is a payment (and in some states a promise of payment)

Be very careful when agreeing to payments as this will start the clock over again so it is very important that you get the dv ltr as jcmet's suggests.
