Figure out what the "Statute of Limitations" (SOL) is in your state to be sued for debt ( a google search will help you there). Do some reading on the "Fair Debt Collection Practices Act" (FDCPA). Do some reading on "Debt Validation" and on "Cease & Desist Letters".

Under no circumstances should you have any telephone communications with the collector. Do some reading on how to deal with debt collectors in addition to what I mentioned above.
