This applies to any credit card. You can do one of two things. 1) To CLOSE an account, you may still have a balance that you need to keep paying on but you can no longer charge on it. The advantage is that you prevent yourself from spending more. The disadvantage is that you can no longer negotiate lowering the interest rate if the account is no longer open. If you have a balance, it is to your best interest the stop spending, negotiate a lower rate, and pay it off as quickly as possible. 2) To CANCEL your card, you can not have a balance on it. The best thing to do is call the company to cancel, and then follow it up with a written request. Also ask them for a cancellation confirmation.

Collection agencies can only charge interest if you agreed to it in your original contract. If they actually bought the debt they shouldn't be able to charge any additional interest on it since you did not sign a contract with them allowing them to do so. Please keep in mind that not all collection agencies buy debt. Some are still collecting on behalf of the original creditor which means interest and fees could continue to accrue.
