The usual procedure is to contact the creditor by phone, and follow up the phone contact with written correspondence outlining the terms that were agreed upon. You can find a sample letter of that type of creditor/debtor correspondence at http://www.fair-debt-collection-com

No, a credit card company will not reopen a charged off account. They may choose to grant you a new line of credit, but this would be rare.

It depends. If:you have a monthly loan repayment agreement with the company wherein the company automatically deducts your monthly payments from your savings account oryou have defaulted on your loan payments for more than 2 or 3 months and haven't contacted the company reg. the sameThen, the company can withdraw money from your account (if there is any cash available) towards your loan repayment. Otherwise the company cannot deduct any money from your account without intimating you.

When often another company buys a credit card company, they have purchased your account. Most often, it is business as usual, and payments are directed to the new owner of the account.

they can if it contains a balance. if they charged it off and gave you a zero balance and a pay off letter then they cannot. If they closed the account and reduced the amount you owe you are still responsible for the payments including late fees and interest.

First of all, contact the issuer of the account that the payments are being taken from. You may want to do this by phone and in writing, just to document all correspondence. I would send the request certified, request receipt requested. [If you contacted the company, that is charing your account, did you get the name of the rep? If not, call again to request that the charges be stopped and the account credited for the full amount charged.] When contacting the credit card issuer, dispute the charges, again, in writing. Use the address on the back of a current statement. You should receive a confirmation of the dispute, from the card issuer. If all else fails, contact your State's Attorney General to file a complaint. Another good site to access is FTC.gov. If the company that is charing your account is a bank or 'N.A'., you can also contact the Comptroller of Currency to file a complaint.

The owner of an acount is the party responsible for the provision of sufficient funds to the account. A signer on an account is a party authorized by the owner to withdraw from the account. Example: Company ABC owns the account; Treasurer Mr. XYZ is authorized to withdraw funds (make payments, etc) from Company ABC account. The owner of the account can also be a signer of the account as in a personal checking account.

A liability account is money owed by a company. Such as Accounts Payable and Notes Payable.A transaction that would increase a liability account is if you purchased an item on account. This would increase either the Account Payable or Note Payable accounts.A transaction that would decrease these are actual payments you make to the person/company you owe, hence lowering the balance of how much is owed.For example, I purchase a truck costing $15,000, that transaction has increased my liability in notes payable. Once I begin making payments on that truck, each of those payments will decrease the liability.

The 1099 tax form is used to report income payments to the IRS such as dividend payments that were received from a mutual fund, company, or other investment. For example, I get them from my account at Charles Schwab.

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.

Just because the company charged off the account, does not mean that they don't want to be paid...so if the car is still assessible...they can repo it. Charged off on your credit means that it is no longer an active paying account..the company took a loss for that amount. A different department, "Profit & Loss" will take over trying to collect any way possible. Sorry.

In order to accept credit card payments from your business, you would need to open a merchant account with a credit card acceptance company. The merchant account will provide you with a solution for taking credit card payments as well as settling those transactions so that the money that you are owed can be taken from the customer and deposited into your business account. For more information on taking cards as a form of payment see these resources:

If you have a recurring payment, you can contact Moshi Monsters through their 'Contact Us' page to discontinue the payments or you can contact your credit card company to stop the payments. If you were suspended and still had paid time on your account, Moshi Monsters will revert the account to a free Basic Account once the paid time has run out.

It is up to the discretion of the credit card company. Most companies will charge off a card after 120 days of non payment. You can stop the charge off process by calling customer support and speaking with a CSR. Once a card is charged off you usually can call customer support and get it turned back on for a nominal fee and possibly payments. This varies by card and you will have to call them to find out.

If you are leasing a car it is your responsibility to make payments. If the Leasing agent does not of record of the agreement it is still your responsibility to the bill, even if you keep the payments in a separate account. It is likely that the paperwork will resurface.

You can get duplicate statements of EVERY transaction going back to when the account was first opened, However - you may be charged by the card company for the duplicates.
