When a consumer receives a notice from a collection agency requesting payment of a debt, the consumer should always present to the agency a written request for confirmation of the debt owed.

An easy way to find out what collection agencies you owe money to is by pulling your credit report. Credit reports will list balances with all creditors as well as if any balances were turned over to collection agencies.

To access to bank account as such, no. But if the debtor agrees to have ACH for payments, then the creditor or collection agencies can withdraw funds, or depending on the state laws a Judge can authorize to garnish wages from the bank. Find laws that apply to the debt in the resources box

The statue of limitations for collecting a debt varies from state to state, but it usually corresponds with the credit reporting rules which is 7 to 10 years. Collection agencies find ways around this though by reselling the account to other collection agencies, thus reaging it and starting the SOL over.

Collection agencies buy defaulted accounts from original creditors. The original creditor supplies all the information to the collectors that was obtained upon the opening of the account. (Name, SSN, place of employment, etc.).

You can get free copies of your credit reports once a year and check them to see what accounts have been placed with collection agencies. You can contact those creditors for the agency information. The debtor need not be concerned about such matters as it is a certainty that the collector/creditor will be in contact with them in one manner or another.

There's no market for such accounts. Buying or selling a Toontown account is against Disney's Terms of Service, and the buyer might find the account suspended shortly after using it.

Ask the collection agencies. They have to reveal who the debt was incurred through, The real question is why are there TWO agencies collecting the same debt? Be sure that there aren't two separate amounts owed to the original creditor.

When the collection agency contacts you, they have to give you the opportunity to request information concerning the debt. You will have thirty days to send a written request to dispute the debt. And to ask for confirmation of the original creditor, the amount owed, when the account was remanded to the agency, etc.

Collection agency buy or get assigned accounts from different kinds of creditors who you may owe without realizing it. Examples of these kinds of debts include bad checks, debts owed from medical services, defaulted leases and others. None of these debts are typical of the kind you undertake willingly (like a credit card account). But they still can be legitimately owed by you. You would need to track down the source of the collection account, find out whether or not the collection agency has your identifying information. If not, then you would need to investigate to determine the nature of information being reported against you. It might be that you are the victim of identity theft.

You do not get dividends from selling stocks. Either you get a profit by selling stocks or you get dividends by holding them. Anyways, to check if you have received a dividend, check the bank account that is linked to your share trading account. The money would have deposited in your account by online transfer (In 90% cases) If not, the money would reach you as a cheque or a draft within 10 days of dividend declaration.
