DearCustomer- If hey are the successor in interest to the debt then you would owe them. Debts are sold all the time at discounts to various collection agencies. Of course, in order to actually force you to pay they would have to file a suit and prove that they indeed own the debt and have a right to collect.

You probably have a defense of statute of limitations since this action would have to be brought within 4 years of the last activity on the account.
