Do you need to repay a 17-year-old debt?
Three questions for you... 1. Did you incur the debt 17 years
ago? 2. Do YOU really owe this debt to someone? 3. If someone owed
you money from 17 years ago, would YOU want THEM to pay YOU back?
If you can honestly answer these questions, you have your answer.
Pay your debts. You are the only one who can.
