    When a collector calls your house, do you know that if you identify yourself as the individual your debt can triple in the number of years its on your credit report!!

    Really? I've never heard that and I just wrote a bunch of articles on credit reports and scores and didn't come across that.

    That's a big NEGATIVE.  You could not be more incorrect or uneducated on the Subject. States have statutes of limitations based on when the last payment was received. Typically the statute is 3-6 years.

    That is not true, talking to collections persons have ZERO to do with how long items remain on your credit reports.
