Former New Jersey Resident Billed For 35 Year Old Debt
A Massachusetts woman got a bill from the state of New Jersey for $73. Alice Mainville has no intention of paying the bill. Why?
Because the bill is from 35 years ago!
Mainville used to live in New Jersey and collected unemployment during a labor dispute at bakery when she was 17 years old.
According to NBC 10, Mainville says,
“What blows me away is that any time or energy went to collecting a $73 debt. Surely, there’s something more lucrative for the state to pursue,” Mainville told the paper.
Mainville, who moved to Massachusetts after high school, says she won’t pay because New Jersey officials have not explained how they concluded she owes the money.”
