I understand that CRA's can report for 7 years starting 6 mos after date of last activity.

But is this the same for SOL for a creditor to bring suit?

does the SOL start 6 mos. after the last date of activity?

In otherwords, say that the date of my last activity was on 2/00 and I live in SC.

SC has SOL of 3 yrs, can the creditor still sue me?

any responses are appreciated. :)

Statutes of Limitation:

Civil actions generally can be commenced only within certain time limitations.

(15-3-610.)

When a cause of action accrues is a critical issue and may be different on a case by case basis. A creditor should always consult actual legal counsel to determine its right to action under the applicable statutes. Some of the time limitations relevant to credit and collection matters are as follows:
