debit of checking account by payday collector

Can a debt collector who bought an old pay day loan debt of mine debit my checking account without my knowledge? I was not informed that they owned the debt nor was I informed that they were going to debit my checking account for $125.

Typically, unless a collection agency has your permission or a court judgment against you it can't just take money from your bank account. We would encourage you to contact a consumer law attorney.
