Told SOL doesn't apply, help!!

Recommended Posts

My mother was called on Friday and was told she owed money for a hospital visit from October 2003. Of course they threatened they were taking her to court and freeze her assets and such. My mother lives on social security so she has very little money to her name anyways.

 

I contacted them to try and get information so I could send a letter telling them not to contact her again (technically she would be sending thebletter). I mentioned the SOL in Washington State is 6byears and this is well beyond that. The guy laughed and told me to stay off Google and it didn't apply because there was a telling agreement (or something along those lines) that was signed. 

 

Any suggestions would be great. I'm out of my element on this one. I have a feeling this is a trash debt buyer and just threatening to scare people into paying. But I don't know what a tolling agreement is and if it is even a real thing. Also, how legal would one be to be added into ER admission paperwork? 

 

The place is TE&A Litigation services.

File a complaint with her State's Attorney General and her County law enforcement for fraudulent harassment of a senior citizen.

There is no such thing as ANY agreement that would extend the legal SOL for being sued, (which is actually 3 years in Washington State)

There is no listing for TE&A Litigation services as any kind of collection agency. This is a complete scam. How did you contact them??

Was she ever sued on this issue in the past?  If there was litigation and a judgment rendered, then the sandbox rules will be different.

Thank you for the information. I got theb6vyears from Google. Guess I should stay off Google, LOL.  

 

My mother had their contact information and passed it on to me.

One approach to getting location info on scamsters is to say you only pay bills with checks and ask where one should send a check. Then their greed goes to work even though they might try to get you to use a debit card.

 

Then you can provide more info when filing a complaint and that helps out the feds.

Thanks everyone, I told my mother that this is not a real debt and she should tell them to piss off next time they call. They did not take to kindly to being told they are full of crap but they have not contacted her since.
