Can a debt be sold and report on credit twice
The hospital sold my debt to a law office and they reported my debt. Then the law office sold same debt to a collection agency and also reported it. Is that legal ? And if it is not legal how do I get it off my report. And if it is legal what can they do sell it every 6 yrs like they did. They sold it right before it dropped off!

They can sell it as often as they like untill you pay it off. It does not, however, stop the 7 year clock. It will still fall off your credit after 7 years UNLESS you confirm the debt to them, talk to them, acknowledge the debt, or anything!

When a debt is sold it should close the previous account and open the new one. It should not keep more than one account open for more than a transition time.
