Thanks for the response! I added the <removed for privacy> since the original creditor was a person's name. I'm in Alberta so the Statue of Limitations is 2 years I believe, which means the legal liability has passed in this case. So it's probably best to do nothing until the entry falls off in December, since paying it off would count as new activity. If I pay the debt after the entry has fallen of the report would that add it back onto the report? I'd like to pay the debt if possible. It seems strange that the system would punish people for paying older debt by resetting the 6 year timer if they pay. Thanks again for the info, I appreciate it!
