Bank of America emails

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon!  I am just looking for opinions on emails I receive from Bank of America (see below).  These emails hit my inbox about once a week.  The account was charged off in September of 2013.  I believe BofA is incorporated in North Carolina or Delaware so this should be past the SOL.  The message themselves even reference the fact they will not sue due to the age of debt.  Should I send something like C&D letter and see if they continue to contact me or am I just asking for trouble?  It seems like at this point I can just have these emails sent to spam and be thankful I do not have to pay back a large debt...BUT I have educated myself a bit and do take pride now in sticking up for myself/rights.  Thank you for any and all opinions!

Send the cease and desist. If they don't  sue them.

First off, this is a OC if truly from B of A so they are not bound by the FDCPA. That said, if the debt is really outside of SOL (you need to check to make sure New York uses the statute borrowing rules), then you can send a C&D but you might be better off just to ignore the email. As far as you are concerned, you never received it.
