No. Just because a debt is purchased by another company, the terms of the transaction can not be changed. However, the statue of limitations only starts when there is no activity on the account for a long period of time. EZLIMIT

When a collection agency buys a debt from a credit card company does a new statute of limitations start from the day it was purchased or does the collection agency's statute remain the same?

The statute of limitations starts counting immediately when you made the last payment to either the credit card company or the collection agency. If you ever make a payment to either of them the statute of limitations will start over. If you have not made any payments to the credit card company recently and the credit card company sells the debt to the collection agency, the collection agency's statute of limitations will be from the date that you last paid the credit card company. Furthermore, if the statute of limitations is over and the collection agency continues to keep collecting the debt, you can send them a letter (certified is the preferred method) to stop all contact with you. Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), they would be required to stop immediately upon receipt of the letter (unless they are taking legal action in a court then they can send you legal notices only). If they do not stop, you are entitled to collect monetary damages as outlined in the FRCA. This does not stop the collection agency from reporting to your credit report. Your credit reporting falls under a different set of rules which basically removes most collections debts (except for court judgements) after 7-10 years.

Does a medical company have to warn you that they plan to turn you over to a collection agency?

No - they will have notified you in reminder letters that they may do that if you continue to default on payments. When they actually instigate the action, they don't have to tell you they have done so - the collection agency will simply write to you - and tell you they've taken over the case, and all communication with the medical company must now stop, as you're now dealing solely with the collection agency.

What happens to a collection account After 7 years to a collection account?

Typically, after 7 years, the debt becomes time barred. It would come off of your credit report. If you have had any contact with the creditor or collector within that past seven years, you could have re-affirmed your debt. This means the debt could start all over from that date, if you made any statements to the effect of being responsible for the debt in question. If it's been over 7 years, they can still attempt to collect from you, however you couldn't be sued.

You got something from a store over 7 years ago made a couple of payments now some company is chasing you ive not responded to their letterscan they still get payment?

Yes, they are entitled to the payment plus any interest that has accumulated over the years. The last activity date is if you made a payment or even had a discussion with the collection company. It will drop off your credit 7 years from that date. The only way to know the activity date is to get a copy of your credit report. It is free from Equifax.
