If it was ten years ago that you last had anything to do with this card, any collection attempt is invalid due to expiration of the statute of limitations in most states.  If they are calling or sending billings, look up the statute of limitations on collections (it is different in each state) then tell the collector what the SOL is and that the debt is uncollectable due to expiration of the SOL.

If this is showing on your credit report here, get copies of all three credit reports and file disputes on the errors with the credit bureau reporting same.  Details are in the Articles you can read on the left side of this page.  There are many tools on this site you can, and should use to improve your credit.
