Customer Question

if an email is sent from a company to a supplier relating to business from some years back & is worded in the following way,
'we are showing the following balance in your favour'
would that constitute an acknowledgement of debt & would it reset the clock re statute of limitations?

Dear Customer,

Thank you so much for your question.


Once a debt is statute barred there is no turning back the clock.

But as the statute of limitation only gives the right to refuse paying and does not affect the debt itsself you might try the epossel argument.

Because the debtor cannot acknowledge a debt one minute and say it' s statute barred the next minute

Maybe he did not even notice that it' statute barred
