Yes unfortunately they can. Companies today want the charged off account money and will sell it to another agency in order to get this. It will show up on your credit report under another you have 2 listings on your credit report for the original account.

Unpaid credit cards won't effect your ability to travel. If left unpaid, they will be charged off and likely assigned or sold to a collections agency. The collections agency will continue to attempt collections, and your credit will be impacted negatively for seven years.

What is difference between a charged off debt and written off debt?

In most cases there is none. Charge off and written off are terms that indicate the debt is being removed from normal account action and sent to collections. Only when a debt is "forgiven" by the original lender or collector is it considered no longer collectible.

Will the bank keep funds if you attempt to cash a check written by another party at a bank that you have a charged off account?

If the lending agreement has a "set off" clause the bank can legally remove funds from any account the debtor has with their institution (out of state branches included). That being the case, if the debtor deposits funds into an existing account, the bank can seize them without the necessity of a judgment order. --- If you come into the bank just to cash the check as a "non-customer" and you DO NOT disclose that your account is charged off with them, they can't hold the check. Even if you did disclose the charge off, they can't take your check unless you have a lending agreement or another account it can be deposited into. Once an account is charged off, to pay the charge off, you usually have to go through that banks collections department, which isn't inside the branch. My suggestion, if you can pay your charge off, DO IT. It will benefit you later. Chexsystems will show the chargeoff being paid, and most banks will at least CONSIDER an account for you and give you a little more leeway to get you back on track.

Does the interest and finance charge stop each month after a credit card charge off?

No - I am a collector and service primarily unsecured credit card debt. Per the cardholder agreement that was signed with the credit card company, the account holder is often liable for a LARGER interest rate after an account goes into collections. This may not always be the case, but I rarely see credit card collections that have interest rates lower than 18%. Finance charges are not often applicable when the tradeline has been closed and charged off into collections.

If your car is charged off how should you handle it if you don't have the money?

Wait until the account goes to collections you will be charged the difference between what was owed on the car and the amount the car was sold for at auction plus some legal and auction fees. The lender will try to collect the balance from you for three or four months then give up and sell the debt to a collection company for about six cents on the dollar offer them ten to fifteen cents if they will remove it from your credit report.

What is the best way to get Last Activity Dates to reflect on credit reports versus closed or charged-off dates because there is a big difference in legal reporting time when considering the two?

There is no difference. The DLA indicates the last activity noted, whether it was the last payment made by the debtor or the time the account was charged off. If a debtor makes a payment after an account is charged off, then the 7 year credit report requirement is restarted.

Can you open an account with a bank if you have had a charge off with a past account?

Typically no, once your account gets to the point of charged off, it has been overdrawn for roughly 45 days (give or take). Your name and SSN then get reported to ChexSystems which then notifies every bank of your charged off account. Not many banks want to risk losing their money to you if you've already lost money for another bank. Your best chance to get an account is to go back to the bank your account was charged off, explain what happened, and hope for the best. And next time balance your checkbook... daily.

If an account was charged off can they report a late payment a year later?

NO! When reporting accounts the creditor/collections company, by law, must report it from the date of last activity. If no payments have been made on the charged-off account it should be disputed with both the CRA and the creditor. What they have done is illegal. Here is a different opinion from another FAQ Farmer: I think that response is well, not wrong, but not on point and confusing. A charged off debt is not a forgiven debt. It is only an accounting acknolwegement by the one owed that the amount due the lender is probably not going to be received. It is however still owed. In the question above it is a red herring. Hence, I read the question as the person has an outstanding account and made a payment a year late. In keeping with the first response, this payment is reported as being what it is: One year since last payment (or late). The accounting (short of forgiving it) on the lenders books makes no difference.

Is it legal to charge off a vehicle account when the owner wasn't notified?

Yes, there is no law that says a debtor needs to be notified of any debt being charged off by the lender. The term simply refers to the original lender moving a debt from an open account to inside or outside collections. The debt remains valid and collectible.

What is the best way to negotiate a 'settled but satisfied' collection account that cannot be paid off in full?

Definately in writing. Get a written confirmation of the accepted amount from the creditor before handing over the settlement. If the account is currently listed as 'in collections' or 'charged-off' paying this account will most likely show 'settled/not in full' or may show 'settled' and the dollar amount of what was paid [by you] and what was not paid.

What is a DDA debit from a checking account?

A "debit" is a subtraction and "DDA" means checking account. You should contact your bank directly for information about exactly WHY your account was debited, but here are some possible reasons:- You requested a transfer to another account from your checking account, and a DDA debit form was used to complete the transfer- You are overdrafted on another account or owe the bank money and they have recollected their loss by debiting your checking account- You deposited checks and totaled them wrong on the deposit slip, so the bank has made an adjustment to reflect the correct total- You are being charged for another reason, such as a returned check

Can you sue a credit card company for a charge they let go through on a closed account and then they sent you to collections and charged off the debt on your credit report?

They can but if what you say is true (although seems nearly impossible) then I don't know why they won. File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.

When a defaulted secured loan is charged off and the property isn't repossessed but the account is turned over to an attorney do you still have to pay the loan?

Absolutely, a charge off does not affect the validity of a debt. The issue of the account being referred to a collections attorney or law firm may indicate that the creditor has decided to file a lawsuit or enter into arbitration action to recover the debt.
