Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
It is from a travel agent for flights to New York from Manchester in August 2013. I'm surprised it wasn't a pay in advance type of charge.
He is not sure. It appears that a number of family have received a significant amount of charges dating back to then but they can't confirm or otherwise that they are legitimate. Is there any "statute" type of law that prevents debts being chased so long after the event when not previously advised of or known about. Some similar charges were actually paid at the time and some last year when presented but there appears to be a fresh set of invoices that have now been presented. He/they just want to know where they stand? What are the consumers rights if any?
