Collection offer letter..what to do

Newly joined and have a couple of questions:

 

I am in the middle of repairing my credit by negotiating a couple of collection accounts.

 

I received an offer letter from NCO financial williing to accept 50% of the outstanding debt whcih I can pay.

it does give you the option of paying  it via on-line. so my question is.

 

Do I pay it online and will they automatically send a letter to the credit reporting on their own or should I call them and get them to agree to send a letter to the CR companies

 

 

Thanks;

 

 

P.S. I did negotiate a settlement on another debt in an installemnt plan and gave them my bank info to withdraw..did I do okay on this?

Welcome to the forums!

 

If NCO is willing to accept 50%, and if you have the $$$ to pay, then DV them if you haven't done so and if they verify, then offer a PFD for the 50%. If they accept the PFD, do not pay online, but send a certified check or money order. Paying a CA won't get it deleted unless they agree to a PFD.

 

Never give out your banking info to a CA. And never talk to a CA and get everything in writing beforehand. I always recommend saving up the $$$ before negotiating anything.

thanks for the advise.

 

I am just trying to clear all my debts in order to get a home this year..don't know if it's even going to be possible but I am somewhat desperate to get all this cleaned up.

Check your state for collections laws. If the CA must be licensed or bonded....are they?  Know what your SOL is before doing anything!
