You had a credit card account which they charged off and sold to a collection agency ca Now you have that charge off which carries a balance and a CA collecting on the same debt What could you do?

It is unlikely that the account was "sold" to a collection agency. Rather, the agency was contracted to recover the debt. The "charge off" of the account only affects the original creditor, and represents a loss reported against the company's taxes. If the collection agency has attempted to recover the debt and has been unable to, the original creditor will likely pull back the account and refer it to another agency in hopes of greater success.


How can you get a paid collection off your credit report?

You have 3 options: You can write a letter of dispute to the credit reporting agency. By law the CRA has 30 days to verify the item in question. If they are unable to verify, the account is shielded from view on that credit bureau. You can request that the original creditor or collection agency withdraw the account from the credit bureaus. This is generally not accomplished on accounts that have already been paid. You can wait 7 years from the time the account was last used for it to be shielded from view.


Can a collection Agency charge you attorney fees if you were never notified of the debt?

Technically, maybe. Here's the thing, if a collection agency shows by their records that they have attempted to contact you and you either did not respond or they were unable to make contact, then yes, they can recover any costs associated with collection of the debt. That being said, you would be hard pressed to prove they did not contact you or attempt it. I essence you would be attempting to prove a negative, and that cannot be done (except in the case of theoretical mathematics).


What is debt collection?

The Debt Collection process stands for recovering the unpaid amount by the customers of BFIs, NBFCs, and MFIs. In the financial sector, the transaction takes place between borrowers and the lender. The borrower is a person or persons who take a loan for personal or business needs. Sometimes the borrower may delay the payment due to some personal issues or may be due to the intention of absconding with the loan amount. So, BFIs use to take services from an agency or agencies to recover the unpaid amount, called the debt collection agency. According to the law, debt collection can be done with a legal and ethical process. Initially, the internal staff of the banks or financial institutes try to recover the payment. Still, once it is confirmed that they are unable to recover it, then BFIs take the help of some external agencies called third-party debt collectors. The whole recovery process overhanded to them.

Will a collection agency sue for 800.00?

A suit is possible and some creditors are more aggressive than others, but most won't mess with a suit for anything less than 1000. They will still try to collect however and eventually they will be unable to find another agency to pass it off on as it ages since it is a smaller amount. It has probably already been discharged and forgotten by the original creditor. Exceptions would be something like the IRS- those types of debts don't go away.


If your original creditor was removed from your credit report can you dispute the collection agencies still showing the debt and have them removed also?

No, the original crditor was removed because the account was sold to a third party collector. The entry will remain on the report for the required 7 years from the DLA. You can dispute the collection agency entries as well. Often times if you have paid the debt, the collection agency will no longer keep records, thus be unable to prove the debt when you dispute it. They more than likely won't even respond, as they got their money and don't care anymore.

When should you use a collection agency?

Once the account reaches the stage of being fully provided, the collections activity is designated as Recoveries. This is a Hard core delinquency stage wherein the collection efforts are of a more intense nature as compared to the earlier stages. The Hard Core Collector will try to trace the customer and ensure full settlement of outstanding. If the customer is unable to settle the outstanding, the collector will ensure that a settlement plan or discount strategy (as per the agreed guidelines) is offered to the customers. In case the customer does not agree to pay inspite of all these collections efforts then a legal case needs to be been filed against the customer . The collectors officer may also choose to assign the case to the collection agency for follow up.
