CA: Determining Assigned or Owned

Is DV the only way to determine whether a collection account has been assigned by or purchased from an OC?

Not if the OC is also reporting. If the OC is NOT reporting you can call them & ask.......If this is a medical collection you still need to know if you are within or past SOL.
 
If the OC is reporting CO  Bal $0    then they sold it to a CA
 
Medical collections are handled different then other debts!

Re: CA: Determining Assigned or Owned

I am wondering this myself, I have a CA, I dont know if they own or were assigned the account, i sent a DV and still waiting for a response, but the OC has never reported anything on my CR's, so am i assuming right, that the CA owns the account since the OC never reported?
