Q: Hello, I’ve paid a debt collector last year through a 3rd party collection agency. Now another agency ask for payment.
A: Send your proof to the debt collector and request confirmation of satisfaction of debt.
You don't ask a question here, just offer up a few facts.
Apparently, however, you are having debt issues. Imho, you have chosen the most expensive way to deal with those debts.
I strongly advise you to consult with a professional about your entire debt/asset/income circumstances, to determine your best path to resolving all issues.
Some have used "debt consolidation" services, i.e., organizations that promise you a discounted amount of debt to pay by use of their "adjusters/analysts". Perhaps because my practice has included a large bankruptcy area, representing creditors, debtors, trustees, creditors committees and occasionally secured lenders, my clients' experience with those types of entities (non-lawyers), the reports I've received have all been negative, and unhappy.
It may be that those who make claims against you are pushing an unenforceable debt, which a lawyer can determine (a debt consolidation agency cannot, no matter how much "expertise" it may claim).
Consult with an experienced attorney in debtor/creditor rights, after sharing your full financial situtation, for the best advice about how to proceed with respect to all of your obligations. A piecemeal approach is the equivalent of replacing your car one part at a time.
