OC bought an account that was in collections


Recommended Posts

How is this to be handled. Original OC Providian sold an account to CAP. This account would be considered a collection account because the account was delinquent. I made payment arrangements with a CA who now was collecting for CAP. I asked for validation/never knowing where my money went I stopped, never heard anything more of them. I disputed the collection account and they reported the now balance, that I calculate as correct,, now on TU it is reported as follows

Balance :229 Pay status Collection Account

Original Balance : 1224.00 Account type: Open account

Original creditor: 12 Providian

Balance 664.00 Pay status Charge off as Bad debt

High balance 1224.00 Account type: Revolving Credit Account

collateral: Providian Date opened: 07/2002

Past due 664.00 Date opened: 08/2002 (two dates opened?)

Now what is this?? This is being reported on TU. EX and EQ reporting as balance : 229. How do I go about disputing this

and this account was in 2000 with PROV.

Then it is not an OC handling it now.

It doesn't matter who has current possession of it. The FDCPA is crystal clear on the matter. Anyone who buys a debt after it has gone delinquent is a debt collector. Period...No excuses. Treat them as a debt collector because the law does.
