    Posted: 19/July/2017 at 8:11am

I checked my credit on creditkarma.ca and a recently opened June 1 2017 collections from FDR collections shows $5,167 from MTCU.  I believe this debt to be from 2001 or 2002.   My credit score was 618 and dropped to 594 when this happened.   1.  Is this legal for FDR collections to start a new open date on this old loan?   2. Can this new open date stay on my report for 6 more years and effect my credit score negatively each month?   3  How do I remove this information from the report?  Do I contact the collection agency and remind them of statue of limitations?

Me too. I am in Ontario. The loans are from '90's-2001. Mine is around $20000 and my credit rating on kremitch karma went down 58 points. Would like to know more about this. Thanks

At the same time trans union posted this to my account they also reactivated a monthly credit report I cancelled last year.. I had to call them to cancel it and filed a complaint to my credit card company. Looks fraudulent to me. And I have said before, there is a lot of hand holding and scare tactics which i suspect begets kick backs. Just saying eh?

Hey, same thing happened to me.  Verbatim:  

I checked my credit on creditkarma.ca and a recently opened June 1 2017 collections from FDR collections shows $6255 from MTCU.  My debt is from 1995-1998.  I haven't lived in Canada for 8 years.  Before I left, I did my taxes and naturally that went to the student loans which were from Ontario.  I am guessing that is considered acknowledgement of the debt.  Regardless, I don't believe there is any statute for limitations in Ontario.  Did you ever find out answers to your questions?

1.  Is this legal for FDR collections to start a new open date on this old loan?   

2. Can this new open date stay on my report for 6 more years and effect my credit score negatively each month?   

3  How do I remove this information from the report?  Do I contact the collection agency and remind them of statue of limitations?

FDR Collections can always collect on a debit from MTCU - MTCU is Ministry of Training, College and Universities. There is no statute of limitations on student loans.

It can and will stay on your credit report (Trans Union) after the 6 years. It will negatively affect our credit IF you made contact with the debt collector. OR if you are going to get a loan and they run a Trans Union it will just show the status and any lender can use that to determine the risk on you paying back the loan you are trying to take out. If you didn’t make contact and If you get an equifax report, it will not show after 6 years.

If it is a Student loan - which is what MTCU is - there is no statute of limitations and for you to call would be acknowledging the debt.

Hope that helps!

Very old Ontario loans may have a limitation period. It all depends on when the loan was taken out and when it defaulted. If it defaulted on or about January 1, 1998 there could be a limitation period. 

Calling them by telephone does not constitute acknowledgement (as an admission of liability of guilt) that would disrupt a limitation issue. 

Lastly, any creditor or member of the credit bureau can report a debt indefinitely that carries no limitation period that prevents then from recovering it.
