I believe it's the date it goes onto your credit report. Key is to NEVER say that you'll pay on xxx date. Never make promises to pay because it will restart the clock.

If a debt is sold to another company for collection does it take another 7 years from the transfer of debt for it to come off your credit report in California?

The date of first delinquency should be the date that starts the clock for the 7 years. Meaning if you went 30 days late in April 2005, on a credit card, and then 60, 90 then 120, then the account would go to charge off status but the date of first delinquency would be April 2005. In CA, 4 years from the date of first delinquency is within the statute of limitations is in effect that a creditor or collection agency can sue you for the amount owed. This will vary from state to state, If the collection agency sells the collection to another collection company, the start date is the date of first delinquency, April 2005. If the collection agency changes the date, that is called re-aging and is illegal unless you set up new terms with collection agency

Can a collection agency collect on a debt that is 10 years old?

Depends on your states statute of limitations. If your state has a 7 year statute than no it can not. But they will try. If statute is not up yet but close to being up then you can ignore their phone calls and mail and let it expire. If you respond it will re-age the debt. However, collection agencies will sell your debt to another collection agency when the statute of limitations on the debt is about to expire. When they do this, the time clock starts all over again and there is a new 7 year time limit. As a side note, you can always dispute this debt on your credit report. The original creditor must verify the debt and has 30 days to do so. If it has passed from collection agency to collection agency, then chances are slim that they will be able to verify the debt. This will likely come off your credit report easily. The original creditor has already written off the debt as a tax write-off. Just keep in mind that if it is sold to another agency, then it can go back on your credit report for another 7 years.
