Dear Customer ,

Thank You for posting your consumer contracts and debt collection question today. I'm attorney Bill assisting you with this matter.

If you haven't received a civil summons the opportunity exits still to pay the debt or negotiate a settlement of the debt with the furniture company.

They aren't obliged to settle your bill for less than the amount due but may be willing to compromise.

You could also continue your payments until notified otherwise by the company.

Because you are in default they would have the discretion to sue you in civil court and then sue you also for court costs and attorney's fees so negotiate a payment may best serve your interests.

We are here to help so please follow up with me as required.

In return by leaving positive feedback today I get a credit for my time and assistance to you.

FIVE STARS or your rating is much appreciated in this regard.

Thanks

Attorney Bill

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
