Is it better to settle an account in collections or pay it in full via monthly payments?

Personally speaking, it is better to settle with a collection agency rather than making monthly payments. Theres only one must pay the collection agency in full. Example, lets say you owe $1000 to a credit card company. A collection agency will say, pay $600 NOW and this will settle the balance. So, if you dont have $600, its a 'catch-22'. You are better off making the monthly payments until the $1000 is paid.

If you are willing to make payments on a debt can a collection agency refuse the payments and continue to harass you?

A collection agency is not hired to get the amount paid in payments they are paid to get the amount in full. At this point the place you originally owed the money to and did not pay may or may not be willing to take payments being that they have now hired the collection agency to get the money from you. YOu can call the original creditor and tell them you are willing to pay and if they say no then you must pay the collection agency, I have never heard of any of them taking payments. When they get hired they try to collect as much as possible of the owed amount so they can get a higher commission. They dont want payments they want money in full....

Will a collection agency or the original creditor accept monthly payments to pay off a debt that is in collections?

Most of the time a collection agency will accept 2-3 equal payments to pay off the balance.As of right now no they will not accept payment and will not work with consumer credit counciling programs. Once it has went to collections, you are not suppose to contact the original debtor. It confusses the situation. You aren't suppose to contact the original creditor once it goes into collections but the Collection agency will accept payments. They are happy to get any money they can. (they get 50% of what they collect)I used a collection agency for a tenant who wouldn't pay for months who I had to evict(went to court) and I received a couple of small payments until the person ran away and hid again. Both the collection agency and I were glad to get any money possible. Unfortunatly, this will show up on your credit report whether you pay or not........... But it is ALWAYS better to pay if in your future creditors eyes (fico score)
