It sticks for 7 years. The fact that it was turned over to a collections agency will make it to your credit report. When it is paid in full, it will say "settled" on your credit report so other creditors know you took care of the debt. Even so, it still haunts your credit report for 7 years.

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.

The original account should show as a paid collection and the other collection account should be removed from your credit report entirely.

No, it is illegal for a collection agency to garnish or freeze your account for any reason. The only way your account can be garnishes is if you owe taxes or child support.

No, the collection agency is now the rightful owner of the debt in question and the original creditor has removed the account from their books.

YES, THIS COLLECTION ACCOUNT CAN BE DISPUTED; WHICH MEANS THAT AFTER THIS IS DISPUTED YOU CAN ALSO REQUEST FOR THIS ACCOUNT TO BE REMOVED FOR GOOD WITHOUT HAVING TO WAIT FOR THE SEVEN YEAR PERIOD. THIS WILL ALLOW YOU TO HAVE A CLEAN CREDIT HISTORY WHICH IN TURN INCREASE YOUR CREDIT RATING.

Original creditors sale their accounts to collection agencies when the account has been past due and they have not effectively collected. At that time, the original creditor will charge off the balance from their accounts receivable and turn the account over to a collection agency. When the collection agency collects the debt, a portion of the amount received is paid the the collection agency and the remainder is returned to the original creditor as profit.

When the collection agency contacts you, they have to give you the opportunity to request information concerning the debt. You will have thirty days to send a written request to dispute the debt. And to ask for confirmation of the original creditor, the amount owed, when the account was remanded to the agency, etc.
