407 ETR bill arrives for 10 year old trip???
Today, a bill for $327 arrived for 4 trips taken in August of 1999, just before we moved. The total of the original bill was $17.69. Apparently, this bill has been sent to our old address in London, Ontario for the last 9.5 years, and has accumulated interest to the tune of $327.
We kept them informed of our address as we had to give it when we picked up the transponders. The bill for $327 is for a license plate we disposed of in September 1999. They say the bill has been in collections since 2002. Are we not entitled to assume that when you provide the 407 with your new address they will forward your bills to it? What actually happened is they opened a new account with the transponders and never updated the old one, sending bills to London. Any one have any advice on how to resolve this? Is there no limitation period on collecting debts?
