Need help with debt (Genesis Health Club)

Recommended Posts

So about 3 years ago, I went to my local Genesis Health Club and closed out my account and paid off my remaining balance of $100 and change. 

Anyways, I just received a letter in the mail from a law office stating that I now owe $400+ to them in regards to my Genesis Health Club account. I closed out the account and paid off the balance around 3 years ago, so I have no documentation showing that I paid it. 

 

However, this is the first contact i’ve received by mail/phone/email/anything regarding this debt. So i’m not exactly sure why if I actually did owe them money (which I don’t, I paid it all off in person at my local club) why I was never contacted about it by them. It’s almost as if they sat on it for as long as they possibly could without making a single attempt to contact me so that it could accrue as much interest as possible. How could I owe them money and they not say a single word about it for 3 years and automatically send it to a law office (which says on the bottom of the letter that they’re a debt collector, so i’m not sure which one it really is) 

 

I just feel like this whole thing is extremely shady, and thought I would make a post on here to see what you guys think and how I should proceed. 

 

Thanks

Well, I would give you the same advice given to me when I recently  had a CA contact me about an unknown debt.  I was advised to call the company that claimed I owed the debt and find out what it was all about.  
 

So call Genesis and ask them.
