Yes, the term "charge off" does not indicate that the debt is uncollectible.
When a credit card is charged off it means that the company has given up on trying to collect funds on the card and they usually sell the rights to a collection agency and the collection agency will try any means possible to get some money out of you. They usually will send official letters, email, and call your house phone, cell phone and work phone if they have access to this information.
No. A collection agency has no legal authority. They can refer the account to a collections attorney who can then file a lawsuit for the debt owed. Yes! A collection agency has the right to file a lawsuit as the assigned creditor under the agreement that you signed when applying for the credit card.
Only if you get an agreement from them in writing. How could the collection agency have any affect on the original credit card issuer? You are dealing with two completely different accounts, one for the credit card and the other that was purchased as a bad debt. They cross reference each other on your credit report, but otherwise are unrelated.
If you have a collection agency working for the credit card company then it is them you need to make payments too as it is now too late to pay the credit card company. They have sold the debt to the collection company and you will have to pay any charges on top of the debt now also. Try not to let it get that far in future, but that's easier said than done.
Generally, the person that signed up for the credit card is responsible. If any users were added to the account, they are also responsible. This include joint accounts. You cannot inherit credit card debt. So, do not believe a collection agency when they tell you that. See the FDCPA for your rights in debt collection.
Yes Once a collection account is reported to your credit history, its origin no longer matters. If money is owed and it gets listed with a credit reporting agency as a collection account, it affects the main factor in your credit score: Payment history. See www.myfico.com/CreditEducation/WhatsInYourScore.aspx for details of a FICO score.
