I have had my troubled youth, and trying to get back on track. I have some old outstanding balances that were never paid totalling $1750. These are from 2000 / 2002. I understand that paying them off isn't going to remove them from my score. These will be dropping off this year, and 2009 whether they are paid or not. I live in CA, and from what I have heard there is a statute of limitations that a debtor has that they can take legal action to collect a debt.
So the big question, should I pay these, or let them lie and wait.
