What do I do about a credit card bill from 20 years ago?
For some reason my original question disappeared so I'll ask again. 20 years ago I got a bunch of cards and got in WAY over my head. I haven't had any credit (or tried to get any) in many years. Now things are looking up for me and I was able to get one secured card. Now a collection agency is calling me for one of the cards from 20 years ago! They also threated to send John Law to my door. What can I do?
