One year. Then, after it goes to a collection agency.. it is like a bunch of frenzied sharks..who will harrass you for decades! One place I would like to send you. I found out a couple of things in an ebook. It is "Beat the Collector" by Jack Tories. I made a few calls to verify the information and found it to be correct. I am now going to give the collection agency a dose of their own medicine!

Should payment be sent to the credit card company or the collection agency?

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.


If a credit card does a charge-off and sends it to a collection agency can the original creditor still try to collect?

How many times and how often can a collection agency post an account to your credit report as a charge off?

A collection agency cannot charge-off an already charged-off account. The reporting of the STATUS of the account AS a charge-off can be reported every time they update with the credit bureaus. The 'date of status' must be the date of the ORIGINAL charge-off.
