Q. I defaulted on a retail jewelry contract in Florida in 2003 for a total of $1,721. I am suddenly receiving phone calls from a debt collector threatening to have me served court papers to sue me. He says the debt now is just under $6,000 with interest. He told me unless I make arrangements immediately, I will also owe lawyer’s fees and court costs when they sue me. He said if I pay $500 right away, he would make it all go away. This sounds like a scam to me. Can they sue me 12 years later?

I have known for years that hurt people hurt people. This thinking was reinforced when I served on the staff of the largest church in the state of Georgia for more than 20 years, and in our vast congregation of over 9,000 people from all over the area, we saw true-to-life examples of the pain inflicted on others by those who had been hurt years ago. Later, while working in an international ministry and traveling all over America and in some foreign countries, we saw even more evidence of the same truth.

Q. Three weeks ago, I was fired from my job. My employer still has not given me my last paycheck. He says I will get it in about a month. Help.

2015 Toyota Camry

The 2015 Toyota Camry has undergone a bumper-to-bumper redesign. And for the 45 percent of Camry customers who have been choosing the sporty SE model, there’s even bigger news. The SE is joined by an XSE grade with 18-inch wheels and added luxury.

Q. I received an item in the mail that I did not order. I called the company and they told me I either had to return it at my expense or pay for it if I kept it. It doesn’t seem fair that a company can force me to spend money to return something I don’t want and did not order.

Now that smart devices, including smart phones and tablets, have arguably become the most widely used devices now in use to surf the Web, it may be time for those users to consider an alternative browser, rather than the one that came factory installed on their devices. As has typically happened on desktops and laptops regardless of the operating system, the default Internet browser is the one that tends to be most widely used, as many users are either unaware or reluctant to try another browser.

Q. Am I entitled to a paid leave when I have a child? My employer has told me any leave will be without pay.

A. Under the Family and Medical Leave Act, you may be entitled to up to 12 weeks leave, depending on the size of the company and how long you have worked there. The law, however, does not require that the leave be with pay. All you may be legally entitled to is an unpaid leave.
