I'm a co-signer of my daughter's loan, got a letter from CA that it went into default. I called them and they were being impossible with the payment plans which I can't handle. I decided to call the Creditor and paid the default amount and starting to make regular monthly payment that required, but I still getting calls from CA. Can I use the Cease and Desist letter on CA and tell them i'm making payments to the Creditor.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff 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.
