The collector will act as an agent for the original creditor and follow their prescribed collection procedures, usually mail and phone contact. There is no specific length of time that a collector will pursue an account before deciding IF it should be referred to a collections law firm or attorney for legal action.
Credit card companies win whether you paid or not. They write-off the credit card debt at the end of the year on their taxes, they also hedge their burden for increase risk by having insurance so they recover some of your losses from your default and they can sell their uncollectable debt to a third party (collection agencies). What rights do you have? The Fair Debt Collections Act. Your debt is with the original creditor (Credit Card Company) and not the collection agency any money you pay should be to the original creditor.
Interest continues to accrue. Eventually the account will go into default. The collections department of the credit card company will attempt to collect the debt. The default and payment history will appear on your credit reports. Finally, if no recovery is accomplished, the account may be referred to a collections agency who will recover the debt voluntarily, or refer it for legal action and the creditor will try to obtain a judgement. If a judgment is obtained, the creditor will recover the debt by attaching your assets.
