I was contacted recently regarding a charged off account. The charge off is from 2005. Since I made a payment in December 2012 the debt collector informed me that the statue of limitations has started all over again (my state is California). The collector now has 4 years in which to sue me for the old amount. I feel as though I was manipulated to make a payment in December 2012. I am unsure how to proceed. Is there a way that I can legally maneuver out of paying a debt that is old (2005) given the nature of the way the payment was extracted from me--through manipulation--?
