Best Answer

Yes. Once a contract has been defaulted on, the creditor has no legal obligation to accept any payment other than that which was agreed on in the original contract or subsequent agreement.

What is difference between auto data entry and manual data entry?

This is from my experience in Remittance processing or Payment processing - A company sends a statement for payment to a customer, the customer in turn sends back statement with payment for credit to their account. The statement has scan line that has OCR characters with the customers account number and amount of payment due that is readable by a data entry machine. When the customer sends payment that matches the amount due exactly, those payments can be processed by machine as an automatic entry reading from the scan line and without having to be keyed manually key entered on a ten key pad by an operator. These payments are processed in batches. Manual entry is when a customer sends a payment that is different from the amount due on the statement, an operator has to manually enter that payment into the data entry machine using a ten key pad. These payments are also processes in batches.

You can, but not directly from them. The debt collector is the agent of the original creditor and does not likely have all records of the debt or contract. The collector, as the agent of the creditor can go back to the creditor and request a reconciliation of payments and history, and will in fact be required to so that it van be verified if you notify the collector in writing that the debt is invalid due to payment or some other reason.

It really depends on the type of bankruptcy petition you file. If you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy the creditor who put the lien on your car may be able to take your vehicle. If you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy you'll have the opportunity to make payment arrangements with your creditor and in that case you should get the title back after all of your payments are made and your amended. contract with the creditor has been fulfilled.

Is there a time limit for collecting on medical bills in Kentucky?

Yes, by federal law, creditors on all fifty states and the US territories have seven years from the date of last payment to collect a debt. That is, if the account is 6 years, 363 days past due, and you suddenly feel guilty and make a payment, the creditor gets to roll back the clock and has another seven years to collect it. On the other hand, if there is a judgment on the debt, the creditor has ten years from the date of judgment or last payment which ever is later to collect the debt.

If your car has been repossessed what kind of payment will they take to get it back Will they accept check credit or only cash Do you have to pay in full or will they take half 800 behind?

If a car is repossessed it is usually up to the creditor, what terms and conditions have to be met to get the car back. Included with all the payments missed, there might also be fees like towing, late fees, etc. The creditor is probably going to want all of this paid up front to get the car back.

What do you do if an account was turned over to a collection agency but the original creditor accepted your payment in full?

Contact the original creditor. Provide proof of your payment. They need to retract the account from the collection agency. The account could have been sold to the collection agency or simply assigned to them. For your purposes, it does not matter which situation applies. You paid the original creditor and your credit report needs to reflect this. After they do what they need to do to get the account back; you then dispute the entries with all three credit bureaus. The original account should show as a paid collection and the other collection account should be removed from your credit report entirely.
