Collection agency purchases my debt?
When a debt is sent to collections, can it be purchased by another collections agency if I don't respond to the 1st agency? Knowing that debts are suppose to be removed after 7-10 years, if a collection agency acquires a debt say close to 7 years on my report, does the 7-10 year removal process start over?
