I recieved a nice "ooppss you must have forgotten to pay us" letter last week on a debt that I barely remember incurring. It is at least 8 years old -- maybe 10.

It was from a lawyer, stating that I owed $1800 plus interest that accrued daily.
No other information was included. I did gather from the identifying "acct number" who the debt may be from.

I sent off a certified letter requstioning verification of this debt along with original documentaion of the debt.
They have recieved that letter and have yet to respond.
The original debt was incurred in Virginia. I now live in another state and have lived here for 7 years.

My questions are: #1 do you think I will hear anything from them?
#2 If no judgement was ever issued then can they go back and get one?
#3 I have noticed the name of this law firm showing up on my credit report every 2-3 years in the past 7 years, but this is the first time I have heard from them. What do you think they were waiting for? I did have a judegment on my report that i paid but it fell off my report the same month these guys checked my credit this year.
