We had Roger’s Telecom for our home, computer, and cell phone. Roger’s could never get our contract straight so we opt out to Bell Canada. Now Roger’s is coming after us for the bill after 4 years. We have been sworn at to the point a Roger’s employee told us to pay the Fuc-en Bill. Then they Roger’s called us repeatly for days and the calls were comiung in to our home every 15-20 minutes per day. We wrote to the CRTC which govern’s the laws of the telecom service. They were appolled to say the least. We left off with Roger’s that we would never ask for their service no matter what, and we have agreed to that.
Now I ask you how long is this debt good for—in other words I think this is Statue Barred. They have not contacted us 4 years—now they the collection agency is harrassing us every day by the hour.
I do beleive that this debt is statue barred from collecting.
A debt barred by time limits the creditors ability to sue you but not attempt collections.
In Ontario and Alberta a creditor can only sue for two years but that can be extended in some situations. In the rest of Canada it is six years or ten years.
But to be certain what the statute of limitations is for your debt I would suggest you meet with a lawyer in your area for a definitive answer.
