Hi guys. My wife hours at work were cut drastically a while back and she has not made payment to her citi card since january. She offered them 30% but they would not go lower than 40 and we couldnt come up with that much. She got a call today and it went to united credit bureau. What should we do next? She has not spoken with them yet.

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.
