Becareful of what you sign - Settlement not always what they appear


Recommended Posts

In recent negotiations with a collection agency the proffered a very one sided "release or claim: without releasing their claims. When they sent their "release" it also included a check. I don't know your situation but I refused to sign it and returned it to their attorney. I sent him an email that contained the line

"I have returned via FedEx the checks that were sent to me in four distinct pieces. If I must quantify that for you, it means that each check was separated vertically into two fragments thus causing them to become non negotiable instruments. "

I guess I have to file on them. They and their attorney have been less than forthcoming at every turn. You can see the details here or in my sig line
