Palisades and I have been going to court since January 2012.  The first time I went to court the amount was about $450. The day of court, the papers stated an amount nearly $962.

Second court date. (the amount higher again), the local attorney that was hired by the firm in Indianapolis that Palisades hired to represent them told me that if I could come up with $500 by next court date (11/02/2012), they would take it as a payoff sum.

I was able to make arrangements to get the funds payable in 2 payments.  One payment of $300 I had with me today.

The law firm told the local attorney that the $500 offer had expired (?) and I now owed $852.  They could not accept the $500 agreement on behalf of Palisades.  (see previous statement!)  They would continue to pursue Garnishment of Wages.

I gave the Court my $300 check with the stipulation that I was going to make a total of $500 payment as per the last attorney I had met with.  

A new status court date was set for January 2013.

As I see it, from the beginning Palisades not only inflated the first amount owed from the time I was served with papers until court in January, said that the $500 pay off sum had expired (?), would not accept a $500 pay off sum today for their Client, but took my $300 check today though.

I lost a possible advancement to a $35000 a year Assistant Manager's position because Palisades filed deroggatories (sic-questions regarding what I make and so forth), kept increasing the amount owed each time we went to court, said my $500 offer had expired, and refused to accept the offer of $500 today to settle the account,  but still took my $300 check as payment toward the $852 balanced offered me today.

Well thats a first

AUTHOR: Keith - (U.S.A.)

First report I've ever read here where apparently there's an actual collections proceeding. Usually reports here about Palisades is about their attempts to collect an invalid debt - like mine. Where they're fishing to find someone, anyone to pay off a debt that's not even theirs.

Yep, in my opinion bottom of the barrel collectors like Palisades if they're mouth is moving they're lying.  Also surprised that a real court of law would allow them to just change the rules of the game, re: your payment agreement.

They seemed to have stopped the robo calls here. I know our state had proposed some legislation to stop collection agencys from "fishing" after a legislator began getting "the calls" simply because he has the same name as the real debtor.

Keep us posted, its helpful to share the info.
