My checking account closed in May because it was overdrawn and I couldnt put the money back in right away. The collections department sent a letter and we made arrangements to pay $100 every two weeks. That turned out to be too much, but they wont set up any other type of arrangement. If I let this go too much longer will they send it to a third party collection agency or will they sue me? I'm in Missouri, and the bank is Commerce bank
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
