I have a Spot Loan that is past due, I tried to make payment arrangements on it but missed one of those payments. Original loan was $800, I had paid it down to $630 (principal, of course). I just got a call from Dalton Management collection agency saying that they own the debt now and I owe $1800!!! I contacted Spot Loan because I thought my payment arrangement was still in place, and it was just to pay the original $800. I was told it has been sold, but he gave me the phone number and name of the agency they sold it to, and that is different than the agency that called me. Could two different collectors have the same loan? I'm not going to deal with them, I just don't know why I got conflicting information. I guess I send them both cease and desist?

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.
