  1. Hi, I'm hoping to get some help and/or advice on this! I have a debt with BofA - it went through a number of different collection firms over the past 2 years, now it is with a law firm that has filed a suit. I haven't received the summons yet, but it's on the way. This is for approx 10k - I'm wondering what my best options are today, call to see about a settlement? I could only work up about 3500 in funds right now and payments wouldn't be a good option since I'll be under-employed for the next few months.

  3. Hey All, Been reading through the forum - great info and resource. Currently, I have a debt of 11k with BofA that has been turned over to NCB Management Services (debt collector). I (fortunately) have no experience with this situation. Due to an unexpected career change and medical bills, I got into some financial challenges (after years of an 800 FICO score). They offered 60% lump sum or, to make monthly payments toward a settlement. I've read that it's best to start with a low offer (10-15%). Is it reasonable to start with an offer of 1200? Or, is that ridiculous? What would you suggest?
