Old Collection

I had a credit card from capital one go to collections about four years ago. The original amount was 1400 now its 2800 plus. It is with the collection agency NCO financial. I am looking to try to get this paid but I am not sure how to approach this. Basically I can't pay the full 2800 so should I just arrange monthly payments? Or should I try to settle for less? And suggestions on how to handle this would be appeciated!

Re: Old Collection

Thanks so much for the 101 info! I should for sure do PFD letter. The only question I have then is...what should be the settlement amount? Like I said before the original amount was 1400 now its 2800.

Keep in mind, NCO are sharks and almost impossible to negotiate with.  Have money to put on the table before you do anything

And if you settle with Cap 1 they will report any balance still owed under the collection account with it saying settlement for less than full balance and if you call to ask why they are reporting a balance they say well because you still have one if you wanna give us XXX money we can report it as paid in full zero balance
