BBB warns consumers about “Zombie Debt” this Halloween

Don't let debt "raised from the dead" play a trick on you . . . .

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.”
