I'm trying to repair my credit. Hopefully, if everything gets right, then I will be able to buy a home in Sonora within 2 years. I have a few medical bills. I have incurred one medical bill from a hospital visit. The other one is from a doctor visit. The bills have sent to collection agencies. Should I negotiate with the collection agency or should I work with the hospital directly? Is it too late to approach the collection agency? approach the hospital or the collection agency
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.
