If the statute of limitations has expired then the debt is noncollectable for the collection agency and any successors the original debtor may have assigned the debt. Any successor would step into the original debtor's shoes. So, if the limitations period has expired for the original debtor then it has expired for any successor or agent, as well
If the debt was incurred in SC then that is which statute of limitations would likely apply.
