No worries - I will make absolutely sure that the clock doesn't reset. And I will not pay until I get an invoice that says this will pay all debts in full. They don't want to do that, which leads me to believe they are less than reputable.

First I will send a letter asking them to verify the debt and state in writing that the statute of limitations has not passed, and to quit calling me or my wife, and make sure all further contact is in writing, etc.

What if called the original provider and offered to pay them? Went around the collection agency in effect? What would happen then?
