  1. Try to pay the original creditor if you can and by pass the collection agency. Also get any agreement in writing and it never hurts to ask that any negative trade line reporting be removed. Be friendly maybe they will help you if you pay a lump sum. Is this a medical bill?

    Reached settlement offer but still have questions

    Get everything in writing
  3. I agree with Centex on this one. You would be better served in working out a repayment plan rather than what will probably follow: The phone calls The letters The potential of getting sued for not only what you owe but also interest, lawyers and court fees A default judgment comes with additional fees if the plaintiff isn't payed and in many states can be renewed for many years making it almost impossible to repay the debt. In some states they can take your property, empty your bank accounts to satisfy a judgment if they want to collect Years of bad credit on your credit report that could possibly get your into trouble on the job Years of rebuilding your credit

  6. I saw an older woman in a beautiful yellow sun dress with hairy legs and enough arm pit hair to be a member of ZZ Top. She was the curator of a museum in Verona Italy.
  7. Write Convergent a letter, Certified Return Receipt Mail and tell Convergent they are out of the loop since you paid Sprint directly. If they do not remove the negative trade line immediately you will contact a fair credit reporting act consumer attorney and let them deal with it. It could also be Fair Debt Collection Practices Act violation for false or misleading representations of a debt but that might be a stretch.

    where to find Colorado Administrative Code

    The Colorado Fair Debt Collection Practices Act is probably what you are looking for @ https://nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/colorado-fair-debt-collection-laws.html The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act , more than likely, applies to your situation on the Federal level. False or misleading representations of a debt through any medium is a FDCPA violation.
  13. Why would someone use a business credit card to purchase personal items? No wonder she was questioned

    ExperianLegal Dept

    The CRA's are not your friend. They are in bed with the the collection industry. Collection agencies use the term 'legal matter' or 'legal department' to stir up feelings of dread so you will capitulate and pay up.
