I got to laugh. Im sure your a nice lady. but what's with all the rules. and when you don't get exactly what you want you bite. I have seen this a few times now. relax. breath. and welcome all. not just a few. and make the best decision based on all avail info. and always remember. one doesnt always need to be in controle.

There is a statute of limitations on unsecured debt. The time varies from 4 years to 6 years depending on the state you live in. As long as during that time you never admit to a debt collector that you have the debt, after the time has elapsed you can write the collection agencies with telling them to erase the debt from your record, then you also write the credit rating agencies telling them the same thing. If they try to call collecting the debt after the credit rating agencies have erased the debt from your credit report, you can tell them that it is passed the statute of limitations for collection and they will have nothing on you.

I got this information from the debt cures book that is sold on infomercials on television.

I owe $1200 on an old debt and all they do is constantly harass my parents (where I haven't lived for over 7 years!) about it. They do not send me many letters and I am still waiting for a new one as I have a hard time keeping track of things (yikes). I suppose I will stand firm and try to bargain it down to $300-$600 but if they will not work with me, then they will not see a penny.

That is how this debt came about in the first place. The company issuing the card would not work with me to pay it off and therefore, I stopped paying. I have not accumulated any more debt since (with the exception of schooling and medical bills).

interesting stuff.
in post no. 7, in this thread, i offered ms. jones my experience, based on the last week in my credit history.
in her post (no. 19), she acknowledges everyone else and thanks them and never mentioned mine.

it's obvious that she wishes to be told that nothing will happen if she does not pay.

i offered mastercard 35 cents on the dollar and they accepted.
perhaps ms.jones should take good advice and talk to the company, or not, and face the consequences

Dan thats an old trick that is used all the time by law enforcement.He is wanted for something else.I've seen this done a lot.I can talk to you all day about some of the tricks i've personally witness with police. They are probaly watching your house now, to see if he surfaces because of their visit.

I think you are right. Police don`t get involved with collecting debt. Might serve a warrant for being sued for not paying someone, but I would be questioning their real purpose for being there.
