Probably not. Most states say credit accounts and written contracts have a SOL of 5 or 6 years (check your state, it varies!) to collect. But contracts signed under seal (some credit cards are!) may have longer times. And there are many other factors that can toll the SOL time. And the state of the SOL can also vary, since it could be your state of residence, the Company's state or other applicable states. They get to choose! Many times collectors are simply junk debt buyers who troll around looking for people who they believe may pay even if the SOL has run out. They will threaten lawsuits to try to bluff you into paying. If the SOL has run, asking for validation (not verification) including proof that the SOL has not expired often gets them to go away.

You've got that stated backward. The person with bad credit who needs a credit card would be the borrower. He has to find someone with good credit to be the cosigner. And the cosigner has to really trust the borrower because he is going to be responsible for repaying the card if (when) the borrower doesn't.
