Can two or more collectors/creditors report to your credit report at the same time?
I had a credit card through BOA and after I lost my job I just let it go. Long story short...BOA reported it. After a while they sold it to a collection agency and they are now reporting it, but it is still showing as a charge-off and being reported on my credit report by BOA. Can they do this?

Yes it's legal for both to show on your credit report but the BOA account should read charged off and have $0 balance.

Unfortunately yes, they can do that, but the original creditor must list the account as a charge off with a $0 balance.
