Just recieved a letter from Fredrick J. Hanna & Associates. I finally got through to lvnv collections and was told they'd send me a letter saying debt was settled. Should I be excited? I don't know if I can trust them since I've had so much trouble with them in the past. I did settle the debt in July but never recieved the letter as promised. They've passed me around to about 4 collectors since then.

I think not. Why would you have to request a letter.
It should be automatically sent, if they were indeed
honest. It appears that they cannot be trusted as
you say. They should have sent said letter 8 - 9
months ago (in July 2006).

Although you may have settled and think that this is
"the end of the matter." I am hearing that the JDBs
will pass around the "remaining" balance to other
JDBs for collections.

i.e. Say you settled a $500 debt for $300. The CA
will pass around the remaining $200 for further
collections. Don't know if it is legal or not! But,
right now, they are enjoying it!!!

i just got my first letter from Fredrick J. Hanna & Associates, and they are so unprofessional. I tried to explain to them my situation. Told that that I wanted to settle at 50%, they told me that they would only accept 80% and that is it. I can't believe that they can only accept 80%, considering that when it was with bank of america, they would accept 70%. I just got off with another Attorney's office and they had no problem accepting 50%. Do you have any suggestions in dealing with Fredrick J. Hanna & Associates, and getting them to accept a lesser amount then just 80%.

Hi Wads,

There is no specific way that you can make them agree to a 50%. Mail to "jason@debtconsolidationcare.com". He can help you out.

Even if it is charged off it may still be in stsatute. You need to either tell us what state your in or type in Statutes of limitations in your search engine. That should take you to a site that will tell you for sure. Most debts are charged off at 30 dsys, 60 days, and so forth. So definately check on the SOL. You may even post a question here on this forum and someone will help you.
I read on this post that junk debt collectors can still collect they remaining amount after settlement. If that is true it is absurd. Shouldn't the collector who accepted the settlement agree to "shred" the debt after that. This could cause a never ending nightmare.

Hi Wads,

Being a little steadfast might help. Tell them firmly that you have no choice but to settle for 50% because that is all you can afford.

Tell them if they can not accept 50% then you no longer want to be contacted becasue there is absolutely no way you can afford anymore and at this point anymore contact would not be useful. SOL in Idaho is 4 years. Hope this helps.

Hi guest

Can you tell me which documents are you talking about. Under the Fair Debt Collection Act, Fredrick J. Hanna & Associates cannot take your house. Moreover as the debt is in your name, your husband could no way be held responsible for that.

They will normally come up with a descent payment plan that you can afford with a reasonable break in the total. Usually industry standard is between 70-80%, I have never had any of mine settle for any less and I have been through it with four different companies, two of which were handled by attornies office.

I wish you luck, hope it works out for you better than it did for me.
