If you filed bankruptcy, consult your bankruptcy lawyer, as this debt was probably discharged in bankruptcy, and collection contacts to you after that are likely a violation of the Bankruptcy Discharge order. The statute of limitations may apply if you have not paid in over four years and this was not discharged in your bankruptcy, but the computation can be more challenging if this was a lease. The period may be longer.
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) applies only to consumer debts, not business debts. If this was a business machine, then the FDCPA would not apply. If this was discharged in Bankruptcy, then you will need to file for sanctions in Bankruptcy Court. If you had a lawyer for the bankruptcy, contact that attorney. If not or if the attorney is not interested, then you should contact an experienced bankruptcy attorney for this type of litigation, as you may also be able to recover your attorney's fees.
