Generally, courts have held statutes of limitations to be laws of the forum, so that statute applied might be from the place in which you are and can legally be sued. It sounds like that's Indiana for you, so you should check with an Indiana lawyer. But, it is reasonably likely that the statute has run wherever they sue. It is even more likely that they will never sue. There is big business these days in selling and reselling stale debt where the buyer knows that it cannot enforce the debt....
