A couple of months ago my wife got a summons saying she was being sued by asset acceptance llc. A day or two later she got a letter saying she could settle for half, so she called to see what was going on. She was told in order to stop the lawsuit she would have to pay something now or they would garnish her pay, take MY car and so on.In a panic she gave then $1000 and signed a stipulation saying she would pay $200 a month so the debt would'nt collect intrest. After redoing our budget we figured we could'nt afford the 200 so I called them to try to reduce the monthly payment needless to say thet said no. So I sent them what I could affored and tryed again and they still didnt care. So now they say they're going ahead with a lawsuit and will get a judgement against her. Any advice would be a huge help and what would a judgement mean and whats the worst that could happen. Thanks

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.
