So Im helping my friend fix her bad credit (yea i know how that sounds but its true) She owes money to some institutions and its been over 7 years... My first thought of advice was to just pay it and start trying to build her credit again but then I heard somewhere that there is a expiration date on debt?? is that possible Question #1. Where can i check to see what she owes and where she has bad standings? (every time i google credit check a whole bunch of spammy websites pop up) Question #2. Does the debt expire? Question #3. What are the steps to re building your credit?
