Why are some collection accounts not listed on credit reports
Hi, I have a general question about collection accounts and why some collection accounts do not appear on my credit report anymore. I have a few accounts I know to be in collections that are a few years out from charge off and they dropped off my credit reports. I still occasionally get settlement offers on them in the mail. I realize that they are frequently sold, but why wouldn't the new collection agency post them with the bureaus? Do they have to pay the bureaus to do so?
