Okay, they stepped WAY over the line there.  Do a search for Statute of Limitations for Collection and find what it is for AZ.  I did, but want YOU to learn to find out necessary credit things for yourself which is what Credit Karma is all about.  You will see what state statute applies.

Now, you can write them a letter, giving them the statute number and tell them straight out how far past the SOL this collection activity is, which means the debt is uncollectable and they are required to cease collection activity immediately!

Learning your rights under the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act is also valuable. You just might want to check that out online, too.
