Why not just pay your bills?

Collectors have a 7 year statute of limitations to try to collect.  The debts, including the bad report of the repossession, will remain on your report for 7 years.  A bankruptcy can mess you up for 10 years..  Not paying on the apartment can mess up your chance to rent somewhere else.  So why not make an effort to pay the bills?
