Generally, if the bill is sent to the 3rd party collection agency, such debt can be reported to the credit bureaus and if the collection agency is unable to collect on the debt, then a local attorney would be engages to file a lawsuit to collect the alleged debt.

So, if the lawsuit is filed and the matter goes to court, the judge will review the case, listen to the both sides and also will review all the evidence, including the tape / audio recording and will decide whether the debt is valid based on all the testimony and evidence presented.

I wish you the best of luck!
