Best Answer

The debtor has no real options unless they want to consider filing bankruptcy to avoid a lawsuit. A creditor/collector does not have to adhere to any terms other than those that were outlined in the original lending agreement.

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.....

If a client hires a collection agency but then cashes my payment can the collection agency still collect their fee?

Technically, yes if there is a signed contract between the agency and the creditor which expresses in detail the relationship in terms of file assigments. For example, many contracts agencies use clearly spell out the right of entitlement once the debt has been physically assigned. Thus, if in the above question, the debt was assigned to the agency, the agency has the right to ask for its commission cut. However, if the debt was not assigned, the agency would not be entitled to a commission cut. Again, it is important to review "file assignment' language in the contract between agency and creditor.

Do US collection agencies have any power in Canada?

No. Actually, they don't have much power in the US, either. Far less than they pretend. Not true. I am president of a commercial collection agency in the USA and represent many US and Canadian companies where the debtor is a Canadian Co. While its true that a collection agency has no real teeth in enforcement, the threat of legal action often motivates people into the check book or face a hand off to a partner law firm. I recently had an Italian client who was owed money by a Canadian company and they refused to pay until I referred the matter to a local barrister and suit was filed. Canadian laws have stronger enforcement provisions then the USA laws. The Canadian company is now paying the balance on installments. The power in any collection agency is their willingness to litigate if the debtor refuses to cooperate. If the debtor wants to play poker, then the agency needs to be able to call their bluff. And yes I sue on $3000 accounts where I think the debtor has the ability, if not the willingness to pay.
