This is what I found - "Information about an unpaid judgment against you can be reported for seven years or until the statute of limitations runs out, whichever is longer. There is no time limit on reporting: information about criminal convictions; information reported in response to your application for a job that pays more than $75,000 a year; and information reported because you’ve applied for more than $150,000 worth of credit or life insurance. There is a standard method for calculating the seven-year reporting period. Generally, the period runs from the date that the event took place."

What is the type of fraud? What state is it in?

tnchuck100: It was a labor dispute in Oregon. There was, (still have it) a court decision handed down in my favor. The problem is: Once the decision came down the company moved out of state and changed their name. They did this to get out of paying. Of course that would have to be proved. The problem is: The company no longer exists. The people are still in business, doing the same thing, they just changed the name of the company. What I am trying to find out is, or could this be considered, a form of fraud. I cannot get an attorney to even talk to me with out a $125.00 fee.

My research indicates a judgement in Oregon is good for 10 years (ORS 12.070). You will definitely need an attorney to handle it.
