Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
I am sorry, but if you signed a contract with them and received payment and did not honor your contract, you have to repay not only the amount you received, but the interest penalty for not honoring your contract.
The only settlement they will take is MAYBE reducing the interest by 30% or so and giving you a payment plan. However, they really are not very forgiving and you are going to have to repay the money you took plus some interest.
