Yes. It is a common misconception that a creditor or collector cannot pursue legal action if any payment from the debtor is accepted. Once a contract is in default the lender or collector can take whatever steps allowed under the laws of the debtor's state to recover monies owed.

Most companies after a prescribed amount of time will and certain requirements are met (no late payments, no disconnection, etc) will refund the deposit to the person/company. If this is the case, then a utility deposit that may be refunded after a certain period of time is actually considered an asset.
