You were turned over to a collection agency by a hospital after they accepted three payments you are on disability?
Personally speaking, it is better to settle with a collection agency rather than making monthly payments. Theres only one ceveat....you must pay the collection agency in full. Example, lets say you owe $1000 to a credit card company. A collection agency will say, pay $600 NOW and this will settle the balance. So, if you dont have $600, its a 'catch-22'. You are better off making the monthly payments until the $1000 is paid.

Absolutely they can ! The only reason a person needs to deal with a collection agency, is because they defaulted on payments to the original company.

Is it better to pay original creditor who still owns account or debt collection agency who is collecting for original creditor?
Paying the collection agency will clear up your account much quicker and some creditors will return the payment to you if you send it directly to them. Most creditors sign a contract with a collection agency and cannot discuss the debt with the debtor once they place it with the agency, they must refer all correspondence, communications and payments to the agency for the life of that contract.
Shouldn't you been notified from a collection agency that they would charge off an telephone bill if you co-signed for it for someone else?
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.

Can a collection agency repossess a car that a bank owns but you are making payments on to the bank?
When a collection agency takes on a bad debt, in many cases they are "puchasing" the debt from the original creditor. When you then pay off the collection agency, your money will stay with that collection agency. This is the most common scenario, but some companies do have their own internal collection agencies (Capital One, for example, has their own collection subsidiary in Idaho - the Westmoreland Agency). Hope this helps!
