Hi, I have this nasty best buy hbsc bill that has been lingerning around since 2002 2003ish, that has gone to Nelson Watson for a while now. I have been managing to avoid them for a while, and of course I have been out of work and got this custody battle going on and mistakenly in my moment of weakness, took a call from them based on them posing as a law firm. Because of my other litagation with the custody thing, I made a payment of 100 dollars on this bill because they were threating suit and kept me on the phone forever and I have a lot going on. Now, there is no way to pay this bill, because it originally was like 1300 and now it is 2900. The offered a settlement of 1880 verbally, but in a lump some which as you probably know aint gonna happen. What can I do if anything to get these people off my back for now and pay this off in the smallest amount possible. Oh and can they freeze my accounts for this or anything??

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the pay off 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.
