Fingerhut accepting payments on a sold account

QuestionsFingerhut accepting payments on a sold account
asked 3 years ago

I had an account with fingerhut and it charged off.  According to EQ it reports as Charged off with a zero balance dofd 11/15.  But Fingerhut has been accpeting my payments through the onlne portal on the dates of 6/6, 6/9, 7/14, 7/15, 7/27, 8/4, and 8/15 with my balance on the website lowering each time it posts.  I emailed Fingerhut customer service to ask them to recall the debt and they responded stating it had been sold to Jefferson Captial (who is also reporting on my CR the balance NOT lowering with my payments to fingerhut) and that they need to be contacted regarding the account.  I am confused as to where my money is going…. and how I can either get it back or get some kind of action from Fingerhut. Is there a statute they are violating by accepting payment on a sold account? Any help is appreciated I’d like to get this rectified as soon as possible.
