Recently I posted a question regarding My Cash Now and the collection agency Professional Debt Mediation. I received a letter from them in
response to my fax and certified letter for cease & desist and validation letter. It stated I must pay them $1000 for a $500 payday loan with
My Cash Now. So I was really annoyed and I called them and preceded
to quote my payday laws for the State of NJ, etc, etc. I told them
I was willing to pay them only $500 in 5 installments by money order
only and I wanted to receive from them a letter when the loan was paid the debt would be satified. The representative agreed to all my terms.
I told him I was sending him a certified letter confirming our conversation and that I wanted to receive some kind of confirmation from them agreeing to our discussion. Its strange as last week when I spoke
to someone in their office they demanded the $1000. Do you think
its because of my cease and desist letter and validation letter?
Also another question, do you think I can trust them with my agreement presented to them?

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.
