We are required by regulation of the New York State Department of Financial Services to notify you of the following information. This information is NOT legal advice: Your creditor or debt collector believes that the legal time limit (statute of limitations) for suing you to collect this debt may have expired. It is a violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, 15 U.S.C. section 1692 et seq., to sue to collect on a debt for which the statute of limitations has expired. If a creditor sues you to collect on this debt, you may be able to prevent the creditor from obtaining a judgment against you. To do so, you must tell the court that the statute of limitations has expired. Even if the statute of limitations has expired, you may choose to make payments on the debt. We are also required to tell you that, for certain kinds of debts, if you make a payment on a debt, admit to owing a debt, or promise to pay a debt, the time period in which the debt is enforceable in court may start again. However, your creditor or debt collector believes that restarting the time period on this debt is prohibited by law, and whether or not you acknowledge, promise to pay, or make a payment on this debt, your creditor or debt collector will NOT sue you to collect this debt. If you waive the statute of limitations on a debt, the time period in which the debt is enforceable in court may start again. If you would like to learn more about your legal rights and options, you can consult an attorney or a legal assistance or legal aid organization.
