Since this is really the only message board I frequent I thought I'd see if anyone could give me some help.
In the past couple weeks, a debt collection agency has been calling me telling me I am in collections for $52 for an unpaid medical bill. They have already screemed at me once when I asked for proof, but have been fairly civil since then. They do call everyday though.
I did some research on this and found that I when I was hurt on the job in Utah in 1997, my company did not pay for all of the medical bill. The balance was $25. As far as I remember, I never received a bill from the hospital, but I moved around alot.
As far as I can tell, this bill is way beyond the statute of limitations. Is it worth it for me to stand on principle and fight this or should I just pay it and be done with it?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
Just wanted to add that my credit is impeccable at this point and I do not want to jepordize it. But I really want to stand up to these people.
