They may have sold it again.

If the CC company sold the account for collections, then they no longer have any right to collect the money anyway.

If the CA was going out of business they may have sold the account again in an effort to get out as much as they could before closing their doors.  Check your CR to be sure.  If they didn't I would start with a "Validations Letter"  Google it for a template.  If the company is indeed out of business then they wouldn't respond to the validation and the CRA's will remove it from your report.  If it is validated then you will know who you have to deal with on it.

Good luck
