How did you get screwed by collection agency?

Recommended Posts

When I settled my Chase account, I was not informed that I'll end up paying

tax on the forgiven debt. Granted it was not a third party agency, but I still

can't believe I ended up getting a big fat 1099 form. What is your story?

I got sued by a collection agency that had no proof whatsoever that I owed them anything. Since I got $1,500 bucks out of them, I suppose I'm the one that did the screwing. :D But they did manage to waste my time for over 10 months. The time spent and the aggravation was worth more than the money I got, though.

Ohhh, and how can I forget! The dumb a$$ small claims magistrate screwed me when he erroneously rendered a judgement in their favor. I eventually won on appeal. But that's who really screwed me.

If you don't mind me asking, how much was your Chase account, how old and what percentage were you able to settle for? This info might come in handy for others here. Thanks.

It was around $10K after they added interest, fees etc. And I settled for 35%

2 days before it was charged-off. I was avoiding calls like crazy. That day,

I was expecting a call from my girlfriend and I said "YES" when the collector

asked my name!! :D

I did a balance transfer. And the account was like 7 years old.
