Who are you trying to kid?

It doesn't take a degree in quantum physics to do a quick Google search on the Statute of limitations.  Georgia's SOL on open-end accounts (that's what a credit card is) is now 6 years, though it used to be four.  So that credit card is still collectable and I do suggest you get buy paying it off.

A 2008 account and 6 yrs to collect debt means it will fall off in 2014. The thing is you have to be sure this is a debt written off in 2008 (which your credit report will show), and yu need to not need yuor credit until it falls off and your credit bounces off.

Ethics is not legally binding after all....
