How many years does an unpaid loan last?

A unpaid loan lasts forever or until it is lost. Basically if a lender is fed up with waiting to get paid it sells the loan to a collection agency which buys it at a fraction of the value.

Collection agencies are usually persistent and quite annoying, sometime even going out of their way to harass the debtor.
