Can a collection agency collect on a debt that is past the statute of limitations?

There is a federal law entitled the FDCPA. Any time you have a collection question you should search for the answer there first. An agency can attempt to collect the debt that is out of statute but they have no way of legally enforcing payment. Many times a person will pay an outstanding bill when its out of statute because they are not aware there are statutes of limitations. Sometimes a bill collection company will not even know that the statute tolled on the debt. Many times the client does not give the agency proper information purposely or by accident.....

Can a credit debt be collected after 7 years?

Excellent question! The answer is YES! A debt can only be reported for seven years on your credit report, and then, by law, it must fall off your report. But this has nothing to do with the viability of the debt, which remains collectible, theoretically forever. However, once the debt passes the state statute of limitations, the collector may no longer sue to collect the debt. At this point, many collectors will write off the debt, and issue the debtor a 1099 form for the debt as income. Recent changes to the IRS tax laws make this more likely to occur. Once this happens, the debt is null and void, as it has been forgiven by the collector.

Can debt collectors collect on a debt after it has been charged off?

AnswerThe term "charge off" indicates the original creditor has removed the debt from their balance sheet as uncollectible from the borrower. This is misleading however, as the debt may remain it must be validated according to the FDCPA should it come back in some other type of collection activity and subject to collection by means of an agency working for the OC or a third party that purchases the account. Also be aware that there are times that the debt is also used as a tax loss by a creditor then cannot be collected at a later time as the collector would then obtain unjust enrichment by obtaining two bites from the same apple. To determine this would require due inquiry by a process to validate and verify the debt. Remember no debt is not to be deemed valid unless validated and verified. It is surprising how many debt collectors do not have the original documentation that can actually be used in a court of law for collection purposes. Many of the debts must be wiped off your credit report if it cannot be lawfully validated and verified. If the debt cannot not verified and validated by the debt collector and the collector continues collection activity you may have grounds to sue the creditor and possibly the credit reporting agency pursuant to the Fair debt Collection Practices Act.
