    debt collector, and believe me, not knowing your rights can cost you. Fortunately, I live in a state with pretty humane open-agreement debt statute limitations, but for folks living in Wyoming, it's got to be hell to discover 10 years down the line that somebody may have bought your old, written-off, charged-off debt for 10 cents on a dollar and that you could conceivably get dinged up for a five-figure number on what may have been a 500-dollar credit-card. For the elderly, this crap has got to be nightmarish.
