Does the creditor or the collection agency get the money you pay on a debt?

When a collection agency takes on a bad debt, in many cases they are "puchasing" the debt from the original creditor. When you then pay off the collection agency, your money will stay with that collection agency. This is the most common scenario, but some companies do have their own internal collection agencies (Capital One, for example, has their own collection subsidiary in Idaho - the Westmoreland Agency). Hope this helps!

Collection Agencies?

Collection agencies, their practices, and the rights of both their clients and debtors are often very misunderstood. When a collection agency begins the process of collecting against a debt, it is important that the debtor understand their rights, what is expected of them, as well as how the collection process works. Third party collection agencies are a party that have no real interest in the debt, the creditor, or the debtor. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act highlights the practices and methods that a third party collection agency may or may not use to secure payment against the debt. Collection agencies are allowed to attempt to make phone contact with a debtor between 7am and 9pm local time. A collection agent cannot reveal the nature of their call to anyone who identifies that they are not the debtor. If asked, however, they must provide the company’s name. Many companies will have their agents abbreviate the company name over the phone to help protect privacy. Once in phone contact with the debtor, the collection agent may make payment arrangements against the debt or they may demand payment in full. A third party collection agent cannot speak to the client directly and may speak only to the debtor, their spouse, parent if the debtor is a minor, or power of attorney. If a debtor does not wish for the collection company to continue calling their home phone, cellular phone, or work telephone, they will need to provide a request in writing to the collection agency asking for the calls to that number or combination of numbers to cease. A collection agent is not allowed to use profane or abusive language when speaking to a debtor and must always identify the nature of the call. If a debtor has already filed or plans to file for bankruptcy and the stated debt will be covered in the proceedings, they should notify the collection agent. If the debtor has an attorney for the matter, the collection agent may ask questions to gather information about how to contact the attorney in the matter.

Do collection agencies offer discounts on debts?

That might be a bit optimistic, but possible. A collection agency will sometimes 'buy' debts from other companies, companies who consider the debt uncollectable. Maybe they just don't have the people or resources to pursue it, etc. So rather than writing the debt off completely, it is sold at a percentage of the total value, to a collection agency. This collection agency now pursues the debt. They may consider accepting a smaller payment from the debtor, as long as they are making a profit on the whole. However you will tend to find that the agency is most definately after a full payment, plus interest. If the agency is acting as a first or third party agent (pursuing the debt under the instruction of the owed company) then they may not be able to accept anything less because of their obligation to the company they are acting as an agent of.

How do debt consolidators eliminate debt?

Debt consolidation companies do not eliminate debt. Do not confuse this with debt settlement. Consolidation companies simply merge all of your debts together into one payment a month that you make to them and sometimes lower interest rates. Debt settlement companies, however, negotiate directly with your creditors/collection agencies to settle debts for a lower, agreed upon, lump sum. This in turn gets you out of debt quicker.
