    I regret having to say this, but your first concern should not be trying to get cable by avoiding payment of your old cable bill. Also, it’s not clear from the way you’re describing the situation whether you have cable in someone else’s name with their permission, considering that if you don’t pay that bill, the debt will end up on their credit record.

    Having said that, I’m going to suggest that you do try to get cable in your own name. It’s possible that if the bill you originally owed is several years old, the cable company has passed it along to a collection company and/or written it off their books. If your worst fears are realized, and they actually still do have records of your unpaid account, you really ought to try to make payment arrangements to clear the debt.

    Please understand that I’m speaking from personal experience and I’ve had to clear a mountain of debt several times in my life. It’s definitely difficult, but doable.

    When fortune frowns, I try to postpone as many payments as possible until fortune smiles again. I’ve actually gone back through my credit records and paid off debts that had been written off by the creditor, when I could do that.

    So be courageous. If you can afford to pay a cable bill, you need to be able to afford to pay the old balance, if the cable company requires it. But it’s definitely a bad idea to keep cable in someone else’s name. Depending on how your situation is set up, it may even be illegal — depending on whether it’s with the cable owner’s permission and/or knowledge or not.

    Good luck!
