  1. Spoke to a rep at Carson Smithfield and was offered a settlement for 25% of money owed to Merrick Bank. Called back a couple of days later to set up arrangement and they weren't going to honor the offer.

We started paying the offered payment terms by Carson Smithfield, thinking we had no alternative. But recently I've started doing some research.
