I have an online installment loan with USA Webcash and got behind on the payments -- original loan amt was 550 -- i have paid back $200 -- they sent a voluntary wage assignment to my work to try to deduct money from my paychecks -- as you will see in the picture, they stated that per "Utah Law, employers are obligated to honor a properly served demand by a creditor for a valid wage assignment" -- that ONLY applies in cases where the deduction is for Child Support and is thru the Office of Recovery Services.
I did speak with them today -- and asked them what it would be to just settle the account -- they told me $1180 -- and that i had to do a min payment of 240 today and 360 on this thursday in order to avoid 'garnishment' and that 'garnishment' papers have been sent out.. I then asked them if they had 'sued' me and been awarded a judgment, in order to garnish me?? they said well.. no .. I also asked if we could just settle for less, bc obviously I can't afford that amount due to a lot of financial changes that have happened in my life recently...
I sent them an email asking if we could settle for less on this and have received zero response
just wondering what the legality of that paper is, since it isn't a true statement?

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.
