Do i have to pay cc debts over 6 years old???

Hi new to this site and was wondering if anyone can advise me!...i recently recieved a debt letter for a credit card debt thats over six years ago...about nearly seven years to be exact, is it statute barred? the only problem is that a year ago the same debt collector a company called activ wrote to me twice but i ignored the letters!...i recently applied for a credit card from my bank and got accepted...maybe the checks bought up my name again! anyway because i havent heard from them for over six years do i have to pay this debt? (as a matter of consideration i dont run away from my debts because at trhe same time over six years ago i fell into debt with my other two credit cards and i paid them of when i recieved letters from debt collectors two years ago....
