I sent PayDay Max a letter (as well as several others) and said I believe I PIF. Well they called yesterday and the gal said you had a payment arrangement set-up and I said well I feel like I've paid in full. She kept saying I have a payment arrangement set up and the call ended. It wan't nasty by any means but I don't know how to handle these.
If you remember, I set up an arrangement with them to pay $80.00 every 2 weeks for like 6 weeks and they would then consider it paid in full. But, I realized I had already paid them like $225 over the amount of the original principal. At this point I don't even want the principal back, I just want it to say PIF.

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.
