Hello again. I live in PA so PDL's are legal as long as they are liscened in another state. PayDay One is in the state of DE. I started with a balance (which was originally transferred from PayDay OK) of $528.75 back in Dec. 2007. I received 3 small increases since that point to a principal balance of $750. When I defaulted, back in the middle of August, according to their site my balance was $1140. I have paid $1468 on this loan since 12/2007.
I, of course, sent them a letter asking if we can do something about this balance and bringing it down a little since I've paid so much. Here is the response I got today:
Thank you for your recent fax. We have reviewed your request for a payment plan
and offer the following:
Your total balance due as of Tuesday 09/02/2008 is $1,365.00.
The payment plan is:
Payment (1) $ 227.50 due 09/12/2008
Payment (2) $ 227.50 due 09/26/2008
Payment (3) $ 227.50 due 10/10/2008
Payment (4) $ 227.50 due 10/24/2008
Payment (5) $ 227.50 due 11/07/2008
Payment (6) $ 227.50 due 11/21/2008
Please let me know if you accept this offer.
Would you accept this offer? I'm thinking I respond back and ask if this is the best they can do. That's almost $500 a month, a lot of money that I can't really afford to pay.

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.
