What is the statute of limitation on a payday loan in Missouri ?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Kansas City, MO

It is over 7 years old and now a mediator or advocacy rep is telling me they are filing felony charges against me for writing a bad check as theft . 3 years ago a collection agency called me about debt , but I told them it had been paid and if they had proof of non - payment to send me a letter ; showing me this proof . I never heard from them again , and never received anything in mail . Now 3 years later , making it a total of 7 years , this new agency is calling me telling me if I don't set up payment arrangements they will be filing charges against me .
