Got another one for you guys, got myself into some payday loan debt and and am working to slowly pay it back. Back on 7/30/16 I took out a loan for $600 bucks. Paid back some of it leaving me with a balance of $479 dollars. So the account is about 523 days old. I called back into today to see if I could pay on it as I couldn't pay it online anymore it said the account was with axcess financial. They transfered me to collections which they said was another department in there company and account was still there in there office waiting to make the final decision at the end of the month if it was gonna leave. At this point im shocked it hasn't been sold off to a 3rd party collection and nothing is on my 3 credit bureaus as of yet. The guy i spoke to was very nice offered me a settlement amount of 51%. I said I wasnt sure and he said to throw out an offer and see if I can get it approved. I asked for 250 and he said that was the lowest he could go and after it was paid off he would send out a letter saying it was settled. I asked him if this would be put on my credit in the future he said he wasnt sure but from what he has seen in the past he hasnt that but he cant make any gurantees? Does anyone have any information about this? I am willing to settle but I dont want to see it on my credit report in the future. Thanks.

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.
