The Better Business Bureau wants to warn you this Halloween about “Zombie Debt.”
It’s debt that has literally been “raised from the dead.”
If you get a bill for a very old debt, you may not even owe it. It could be debt wiped out by a bankrukptcy, debt beyond the statute of limitations or debt resulting from fraud or scams.
Stephanie Garland of the Better Bureau says, “If you determine you already paid it, write a letter to the collection agency. If this was not yours, write a letter challenging its validity.
“The last thing we want you to do this Halloween is pay a debt you don’t owe.”
