My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Hawaii
Collector: MSB (private collector)
Hi all -
Got a very aggravating situation and hoping someone can help. I lived in Hawaii in the 1990's when I sold my last vehicle the new owner got an expired registration and safety check ticket - $145 total that went unpaid. Now being this was 12 years ago I don't have a bill of sale or title transfer or anything like that. I hadn't received any notification of the debt until I saw it appear on my credit report 3 months ago. I didn't know what the debt was about until I contacted the debt collection company.
So my question is this:
1. Is there a statute of limitation on court fines?
2. I sent a fax and email asking for debt validation from the collection company. What other ways can I handle this?
Any advice is appreciated. I don't have any experience dealing with collectors so I want to minimize the mental anguish of dealing with these jokers (short of paying a fine thats not mine.).
Thanks in advance!
