Pay day loan, I took sick so I never made payment back in 2004
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It was about 300.00
Lawyer: Barrister, Attorney replied 2 years ago

Ok, then this is a scam... We see this a couple dozen times a week here on the site.. The scammers have hacked payday lender's computers and gotten lists of people who took out loans long ago. Then they contact them and threaten to file criminal charges for theft or check fraud or sue them civilly if they don't pay up.

.

So even if this was legitimate, the statute of limitations in LA is 10 years for a breach of contract claim so it would have expired in 2014.

,

With that said, you can tell them to go jump off a cliff..

thanks

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
