I visited GA in 1999 and sneezed whilst driving, briefly swerving. I was stopped and I assumed I was given a warning since I was never issued a citation. On October 16, 2011, I received a collection effort representing the Sheriff's office in Liberty County , GA, thirteen years after the incident. I contacted the collection agency and the Sheriff's office and they advised me to ignore it. Since then I have been inundated with threatening letters demanding payment although I had never been contacted in the interim. The collection agency disputes that they are subject to FDCPA guidelines and claim there is no state statute of limitations on collecting a personal debt. Are they exempt?
