About collection on apartment rent with eviction notice? (Detail below)
It's almost three years old collection.
In 2013, person A got arrested and when A tried to pay rent for apartment through a friend while was still incarcerated, the friend was told that there was an eviction notice that the apartment management put on A and the apartment management didn't accept the rent payment. The apartment was subsequently cleared away. There were few months left in the lease.
Person A got release in 2015 and starts getting collection calls in new number. Upon checking credit report in CreditKarma, notices one collection negative information.
Person A feels unfair as there was an attempt in paying rent two years ago, but the apartment management refused to accept it citing eviction notice.
Person A only has verbal information about the eviction notice, as the friend was not given any eviction notice.
After person A got released, called the apartment management, was told that it was too old case and the management has changed since then and they have no information about person A and if that was sent to collection then they can't go anything about it.
Person A doesn't know what to do. Certainly it doesn't feel right to pay for the rent on the evicted apartment! But there is that collection in Credit report that's like sore thumb.

Didn't see any way to edit. Just wanted to add one more information.

The statute of Limitation of debt for the state is three years, and it's almost three years. So What does that mean?
