this sounds soooo simple. UNTIL you get it payed off or discharged by B/K. Lenders will sometimes accept a CASH offer, so keep that in mind at refund time. B/K will clear off the debt but your already bad credit will be even worse by doing so. Try to pay something on a regular basis if possible. Good Luck
