Should you pay off a debt that has been written off by a company and sold to a collection agency if the agency is now trying to collect?
The debt is still valid and collectible therefore the
creditor/collector can use whatever means necessary to recover
monies owed. Collection procedures would also include the
possibility of a lawsuit if the state SOL relating to the debt in
question has not expired. It is always better to pay one's debts if
at all possible.
