Can an account be sent to collections if you are making monthly payments?

If the payments are not suitable in size to the creditor, then yes. This commonly happens with medical bills. Hospitals and clinics are not required to extend the courtesy of credit to anyone. Payment in full tends to be the policy. If you owe thousands and are only paying a small amount (like 50 every month) they will send it to collections.

What happens when collections are sent to an attorney?

You will receive a letter from the attorney that will probably give you some options. Such as negotiating or reaffirming your payment. Or perhaps a setoff amount for a lump sum. Seldom is the first contact from an attorney a notice they are going to sue. Do not ignore anything from a valid attorney, nor answer it without legal counsel. They can however, simply serve you with a summons that you are being sued.

These letters are usually used when the customer does not have an established account with the other entity.

Can a creditor or debt collection agency access my bank account for debt collection?

Yes they can. After they have obtained a court judgment. I fell behind on two payments on a court ordered payment plan and the creditor sent a letter asking me to contact them within 10 days. I did not. I am not sure how they were able to do it, but they got a court order placing a hold on my checking account (took all the money that was available) and I am not able to withdrawal any money from the account until such a time that the debt is satisfied. I would advice that you contact them to try and set up some sort of payment plan if and when they do get access to your account.

What can a creditor do if you are in default on a credit card?

A creditor can turn you over to collections and report you to the credit reporting agencies. Depending on what type of credit card you are talking about, the creditor can also demand return of items purchased on the card (such as an appliance store account). If you are getting harassing phone calls at home or work (yes, they are allowed to call you at work), you can send them a written letter stating that you no longer want them to call you at home or work (sent via registered mail with return receipt). The creditor would then be allowed to call you one more time to verify receipt of your letter. Creditors are also not allowed to call you before 7am or after 9pm. Due to privacy isses, creditors are not allowed to tell your employer or others not listed on the credit account why they are calling.
