#1 UPDATE Employee

The contract states...

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

Fan Distributing is a party to this contract as an assignee of the creditor. The contract states that interest continues to accrue until the debt is settled or paid by the debtor. Even should the debt be beyone the Statute of Limitations of a particular state (and every state has a different Statute of Limitations), this does not mean that the debt is extinguished. Nor does it mean that the debt cannot be collected.

Contract between who?

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

"had been accruing interest as specified by the contract between the parties."

Who were the parties? I would guess its NOT between Fan Distributing and the customers. If its not between your company and them, I dare say its illegal to charge interest. I am sure there are other people here on ROR that are more familiar with that then I am.

"which have been delinquent for many years"---Just curious what you consider many years? I am guessing you may even be over the statute of limitations on this one.

Of course as shady as Drivetime/Ugly Duckling is, it would NOT suprise me if Fan Distributing is crooked.

#3 UPDATE Employee

Rebuttal supplement

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

James and Gloria have accounts which have been delinquent for many years. In order to try to resolve these outstanding debts, they were contacted to attempt to work out satisfying these outstanding debt balances. They were offered a substantial discount, as their balances had increased substantially since they had been accruing interest as specified by the contract between the parties.

Debt in question is collection account

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

Fan Distributing is successor in interest to Ugly Duckling regarding this collection account. The balance due referred to as 'inflated' includes accrued interest.
