Joanne,

We are sorry but we don't understand your question. Are you saying that you had a cable bill that you haven't paid on for 11 years and now they are trying to collect? If so, that debt may be outside the statute of limitations (which we understand to be four years in Pennsylvania). If you confirm this debt is too old, the you can send a cease contact letter to the debt collector instructing them not to contact you again.

But keep in mind that if you have been making payments on this debt in the last few years, that may have extended the statute of limitations. Also keep in mind that you may not be able to get future service from them if you defaulted on a debt with them in the past.
