Debt collector Wants Me to Pay Debt From My Former Marriage
I live in Georgia. About 13 years ago I co-signed for a car for my husband. He was injured later that year and was unable to work. I couldn't pay the debt on my income and the car was re-poed. A few months later we sepearted and he moved to another state. I was never contacted regarding any outstanding balance following the sell of the car after repo. About a month ago a junk debt collection company contacted me and said I owed the debt for the balance of the car after nearly 13 years. They said that they were coming after me because I was the co-signer. They had not bothered to contact my Ex. Maybe since I live in the same state as when we were married I was easier to find and they didn't bother to chase him down. Do they have a right to come after me 13 years later when they haven't even tried to go after him? Should I give them his contact information?
