So it is wise to leave my ING account open since it's being taken over by Capital One? I'm not sure if this means anything I just thought I would ask.

Do you have debt that is overdue with Capital One? If you have debt in good standing, then there's no need for concern.

Debt that I never paid from years ago when I was in college and my account was then passed over to creditors.

When acquisitions are made it seems common for companies to try to once again collect what was uncollected debt, if nothing more than a mass mailing. I'm not sure they will try very hard to collect the debt. If they send you more than one letter I would probably just shift my money elsewhere.

I have closed my account because i'm not sure at all and don't want to take any chances. I cleaned it out and that was the end of ING. Seeing that Capital One took it over made me nervous

It was debt that I accumulated in college as a freshman and could never be taken care of because it's too high

You got the benefit of it (whatever you bought that was more than you could afford), pay the piper. Some of us did w/o and lived on what we could afford - and continue to do so.

It was over $10,000 and I had to accept the fact that I was 18 and never could pay that off
