Creditor sent out debt to collectors in april. Just until now I can come up with payment. We agreed on the phone to a one-time payment but now they won’t send it in writing or accept certified checks. They are telling me that if I send a money order or a check they will take that amount as a partial deposit for the full amount but I’m scared they might want to take more money in the future.
How can I effectively make them put it in writting? I thought of opening a new bak account with just the amount agreed upon and as soon as they have the money go ahead and close it. In case they came back for more, can this hurt me in anyway??
