The Answer

Dear Tina,

The best place to look is to see what is reported on all three of your credit reports by getting a consolidated credit report. The consolidated credit report link is the same one I use myself.

Even if the statue of limitations has expired on this debt it does not mean they still can’t attempt to collect, just not sue you. In fact they can attempt to collect forever.

Check the credit report and see what’s being reported about this old debt.

Big Hug!
