Yes, the term is used to indicate a debt being written off as uncollectible by the original creditor. The debt however remains valid and subject to collection by a collection agency working for the original creditor or a third party that buys the account.

If the debt collector is not licensed or authorized in that state, it cannot legally act to collect the debt. Check with your state agency that licenses debt collectors. The debt collector can retain a local attorney to collect the debt, of course, and that would be under Michigan Law.
