You may never know what you’re missing if you don’t listen!
How to Market Your Credit Repair Business for FREE!: Years ago, when I was trying to launch my first version of credit repair software, called Credit-Aid, I listened to all the bad marketing advice out there. I took out a loan on my house, maxed out my credit cards, and went into $200,000 of debt just to advertise my $20 CD. Guess how much return I made from it?
Let me put it this way - I was living the high life. I was able to upgrade my dinners from Top Ramen to Cup-o-Noodles… That’s right - nearly ZERO in return! It was an epic failure.
But I didn’t give up. And through trial and error over the past two decades, I now know a secret almost no one’s talking about. Want to know what it is? Listen to this episode to find out!

Clearing Up Confusion Around Expired Debt and the Statute of Limitations
This is perhaps one of the most common and confusing subjects of all the years I've been in this industry. And although there is no clean cut answer, I'm going to share with you what the rules are so hopefully it sheds some light and clears some confusion.
Disclaimer (... I know, I know... but our attorneys made me do it): I'm not an attorney and this information should in no way be considered legal advice. I do however have decades of experience in the credit repair industry and am happy to pass along what I've learned.
First, let's talk about the statute of limitations on debt collection, which is how long debt collectors have to sue and collect on debts owed. Now, a point of clarification, this is completely different than how long items can stay on your credit report (aka: “running of reporting”).
If you or your client owe an old debt, collectors may not be able to collect on it. Debts eventually expire. It’s called the statute of limitations and it gets a little tricky because it varies by type of debt and also varies from state to state.
Now, although a quick Google search will provide a chart that breaks down the statute of limitations by state and type of debt, it isn't accurate and will likely add to your confusion.
So how do you know which state's statutes apply to your situation?
Generally speaking - the state in which the borrower resides (even if they move to a new state) is typically the jurisdiction, but there are some exceptions to this rule. Some states have their own laws that a judge may overrule on in a court setting, while some states have their own precedents (aka “case law”) that conflict with what the traditional chart says.
Beyond that, you may need to also factor in that if the debt is a credit card, most credit card agreements have a sneaky paragraph that allows the creditor their choice of venue. So in other words, if you owe a debt in one state and the statute of limitations says it is expired, and the creditor has their choice of venue - they can sue you according to the statute of limitations in another state which has not yet expired.
So, as you can see - it’s not always a black and white answer of, "Yes, the debt is collectible" or "No, it’s not collectible".
How do you know for certain then?
Take into account these 4 steps:
- Start by assuming that the state in which the borrower resides is accurate
- Take a look at the contract and search to see if there is a venue clause
- Research case law for cases in which a precedent has been set.
- Finally, if you are sued on a debt you feel is expired - ultimately it’s up to you to defend yourself in court and the final decision will rest with the judge. Therefore, knowing this information in advance and being prepared could mean the difference between whether or not you truly owe on the debt.
That’s it for this month’s update.
I can't wait to talk to you again next month!
