Re: How much should I offer First Premier?

When creditors assign collection to a debt collector, even though they still own the debt, many of the assignment agreements include a specific clause that all payments must be made through the debt collector, and not through the OC.  If their agreement with their debt collector included such a provision, they wont negotiate with you.

That is certainly understandable, as one of the reasons they hire a debt collector is to rid themselves of the daily hassles.
