Jose. DID they repo the car?? If not, I dont see how it could be correct.

Was this vehicle a repo at the time and were you paying the remaining balance to the collection agency or was the account a charge off? I am assuming that you are refering to Ford Motor Creit which I used to collect for. In most cases a 3rd party collection agency will purchase the account at pennies on the dollar or the account will be placed with a fee once the account is collected. It is the collection agency responsiblity to update the creditor of payments and in some cases update credit reports. Also it is a good idea to get a confirmed paid in full letter and to send it to the original creditor to make sure they update your credit report correctly.

Do you have to pay the original balance on account that has been sold to collection agency?


You had a credit card account which they charged off and sold to a collection agency ca Now you have that charge off which carries a balance and a CA collecting on the same debt What could you do?

It is unlikely that the account was "sold" to a collection agency. Rather, the agency was contracted to recover the debt. The "charge off" of the account only affects the original creditor, and represents a loss reported against the company's taxes. If the collection agency has attempted to recover the debt and has been unable to, the original creditor will likely pull back the account and refer it to another agency in hopes of greater success.

Will paying a collection account improve your credit?

It will, as long as the collection's date of last activity is within the last 6 months. Paying a collection resets the date of last activity and may wind up hurting your credit score. It is better to have an old collection with a balance than a new collection without a balance.

Does transferring balances effect your credit score or is it reported?

== == Yes, when you transfer a balance you are required to close that account. Closing an account decreases your score up to 20 points. You then increase the balance of a new account. Opening a new account decreases your score up 20 points. If you have a balance on an account that is already open and your transfer more money into that account you are increasing your balance; which will decrease your score up to 20 points. So, be careful with this process, and be aware of the affects.

Can a creditor and the collection agency who purchases your account from the creditor both report the same debt in separate instances to a CRA?

Yes, they can and it's customary for them to. The original account should have all the history, including late payments you made and the status (collection or charge off), the DLA, and date the account was opened. It should not be showing a balance due once sold or assigned to a collection agency. It may have a statement about being sold or transferred, but not always. The CA account should have the date they received, or were assigned, the account and the current balance (often with interest added in). The DLA should not have changed.
