If you have delinquent credit accounts in collection, you have a lot of company if you live in Houston or even in Texas.
According to a report entitled Delinquent Debt in America by the Urban Institute, almost 44% of the population of Houston has collection accounts on their credit report. For Texans in general the percentage of the population is 44.7%. Collection accounts are debts that have gone unpaid so long that they have been "charged off" by the original creditor and referred to debt collectors or sold to debt buyers. You may even get sued for your bad debts.
