Anyhow, the situation is that I have a collection agency that is coming after me now because of checks written back in 4/97 and 5/97. I was wondering if the SOL applies to these as well? The SOL for CA is 4 years - but before I do anything whether it is negotiating settlement with updating the credit reports and deleting the lines or doing validations, I wanted to confirm that the SOL is 4 years and not longer for checks? Does anyone know? Thanks in advance..
