Hi Merle, I assume the claim is valid, and you do not dispute any of the amount being claimed. Is that right? Can you please describe what attempts have already been made to enter a payment arrangement with the debt collector? You mention you have tried to offer them $200 a month... do you know what they would accept? Have you provided your financial details to the Debt Collector? Are you or your business insolvent? Is the claim against you personally, or your company/trading trust (if you are not a sole trader)? How much is the claim for? do you have any other unpaid debts? I await your responses, kind regards, James
