About 3 years ago Northstar collection said they would accept 1500 for the 5000 debt I owe. I did not have the 1500 then. I am in college now and receive a pell grant refund each quarter. I contacted Northstar. They say they will only accept the 1500 in one lump sum, not partial payments. What am I to do? shoud I contact a lawyer?

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.
