so I got a call from a debt collector today - for a $26 dollar debt -

from 1997 - old electric company debt - they've been charging me for 10 years and just now get around to hitting me up on this?

wtf -

they had my old street address - I told them to mail me a new statement - even then I felt like I could get hit with an identity scam.

took them 10 years to find this and get to it? lame, lame, lame - but it never showed up on my credit rating - odd.

I wouldn't risk paying it. It's too late to be on your credit report and you're not legally responsible for the debt anymore. Don't take the chance.

Debts after seven years are uncollectable (i.e. written off)and you could actually get ding to your credit report if you do pay it.
