My younger sister put a sprint cell phone in my fathers name over 7 years ago. Soon after that my father started recieving letters that she owe 800. he ignored it , and told her she had to pay it. About 5 years ago when he was viewing his credit report he noticed that SPRINT was on his credit report, he wanted to stay in good standing with his credit so he paid it, not knowing 5 years later it was going to come back and haunt him. Long story short. CAVALRY PORTFOLIO SERVICES, which sounds like a photography studio, came out to my 68 years old fathers house Aug.26,2010(Thursday) and took his only transportation (cadillac) that he had for at least 10 years, due to he was not able to purchase another car because he lost all his money in a bad stock market during the 911. They told him he had 10 days to get a motion, rather he had money to pay for it or not or they was selling it at a auction. Now, my father is in a depression and its like he's dying slowly over a car that he loved. Before this happened my father had no health problems. What do I do? neither of us have any money. Do I watch my father dye slowly over a car, that actually, even if he hasn't paid the bill whatever happen to statue of limitation.

Far from the Truth

AUTHOR: Really? - (USA)

It sounds like you need to get your facts straight because this is so far from the truth. First of all If your sister "really" opened an account in your fathers name, she commited Fraud and he should file fraud charges against her. You mentioned she opened this 7 years ago?? which would have been 2003. You said he Ignored it until 5 years later when he saw it on his credit report??? So that puts us at 2008 when he paid it as you claim since he wanted to stay on top of his credit. Then you stated 5 years after that it came to cavalry?????!!! Ummm that would put us at 2013 which is not here yet. Even so, If your father paid it, all he would need to do is provide proof of the payment to cavalry and we would correct it. If he did pay It and did not get it in writing that's on your father. You should always get everything in writing FYI. Also dont blame cavalry, blame sprint because according to you he paid it before it was sold to cavalry correct?? So why be upset with cavalry because Sprint clearly did not close out his account and sold it to us. What's even more far out from the truth is "WE DID NOT COME GET YOUR FATHERS CAR OVER A SPRINT BILL" If we came and got his car it was due to non payment on his vehicle. You can say what you want but the only time we could come and repossess a vehicle is if we had the account and your father still had the vehicle in his possesion and he was electing not to pay. Typically the Original creditor repossess the car If they are able to locate it before they sell the account. If not they sell it anyway and If we are able to locate the vehicle then we will send someone out to go get it, again if the customer elects not to pay. The funny thing is on our auto repoes. We offer to make arrangements on the account sometimes for less than what you owe then after the account has been paid... we release the title. So It's almost like a refinance. So, If your fathers car really was reposesed by us it wasn't behind a sprint bill. If we pursued any further on a an account like that it would have been legally which in this case we would have either garnished his wages, put a lien on his property (If he has any) or just filed judgment (depending on the state). We would have not repossessed his vehicle. The statue of Limitation has not changed. Let me Clarify with you exactly what that means. Their are two different statues. 1.) How long we can report on the Credit Reports (7 years from the charge off date) 2.) How long we have to Litigate (sue) (Varies by state). I am not saying we didn't come and get your fathers vehicle but If we did it was within the laws and due to non payment on his vehicle.  It sound like your father was just embarrassed and he wanted someone to blame.
