10 yrs ago I had a $400 billing dispute with the phone company that was settled 3-4 mnths later when they admitted that the wrong long distance rates had been charged to me. I had received a collections letter prior to that.
After the matter was settled, I had no problems for 10 yrs, no adverse credit reports nothing..then last week, I received a letter from a collection agency that I owed them over $4000 for that bill.
Can they even do that when I dont have any outstanding debt to the phone company?? Also, teh SOL for texas is 4 yrs. Can i write back to these guys I tell them that?
