Having your credit card or any other account 'charged off' or reported as a 'collection' means that your balence had not been paid satifactory up until that point. If you pay these derogatory accounts after they have been charged off or reported as a collection account, and one should always pay them off, then the company should report the new status to the credit bureaus. (this is something you should keep your eye on to make sure they are following protocal). This however, will not remove the fact that they were charged off or in collection at some point. It will simply show the charge off/ collection as being paid in full. With that being said, once the C/O or Collec. accounts are paid, they will still have a negative effect on your credit score for quite sometime, but will have a much lesser effect than having not been paid off. Also, if a derogatory account is not paid, often the company will report the charge off or collection multiple times for years to come. Each reporting will negativly effect your score and in turn, continue to bring your score down. Contacting the companies that are reporting you to the bureaus, either before they go into collections or after, is always a good idea to keep them from pursuing further action against you.
The collection company has probably charged interest sincethe day they received the account. The interest rate can differ from state to state on a charged off account. So yes, they can but that amount is not just for two months. You need to ask for a total breakdown on the account and see if the interest charged is correct.
in most cases your original crediter, say sears, charged off your account and then turned it over to a collection company. the collection co bugged you and you paid the amount owed. in this way you did pay in full but prior to paying in full Sears charged it off as a bad debt. the collection company got 50 60% of the total amount you paid.
If a Payday Loan company hires a collection agency to collect on your account they can send your account to an attorney to collect the amount of the loan and any NSF fees that you have accumulated. However, it is stated at the bottom of your contract that if you close your checking account that the loan is made from, that you can be charged with fraud.
"Bad debt expense, or noncollectable accounts expense, or doubtful accounts expense. When does an account or a note become noncollectable? There is no general rule for determining when an account is noncollectable. once a receivable is past due, a company should first notify the customer and try to collect the account. if after repeated attempts the customer doesn't pay, the company may turn the account over to a collection agency. After the collection agency attempts collection, any remaining balance in the account is considered worthless." -Principals of Accounting book, page 394-
When a company writes off your loan, from an income and accounting standpoint, they are saying that your loan will not be paid. When this occurs, they will send a transaction line to one or more credit bureaus indicating that they had to charge off your account as a result of non-payment. When your account is sold to another company, the current organization either believes that they have gotten the most value out of the account or does not believe that it is cost effective to waste any more money working on the account. Either way, companies sell loans to other companies all the time. When an account is sold off AFTER being charged off, the buyer is usually a distressed debt (collections) organization that specializes in the collection of that type of debt. Usually these buyers pay very little for the loan because the likelihood of collection is quite low.
