A pre-charge off is when the creditor is giving the debtor notice that the account is in default and will be sent to collections if a payment agreement is not made by a specified date. Post-charge off is when the account has been sent to collections, sold to a third party creditor or referred to a legal firm for further action.

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.

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.
