So, I would like to propose a counter offer.
I would like to offer an amount of $ to settle the outstanding debt amount of $with you.
I would also like to request the following conditions as a part of my settlement offer:

- Any lawsuit filed against me will be dismissed and no future litigation related to account number listed above will be filed against me.
- All the negative listings related to the account mentioned above will be removed from the credit bureaus.
I have several debt accounts with other creditors, and will only be able to pay those creditors who are willing to accept a settlement amount that I can afford.
I have enclosed a copy of my financial statements for your consideration.
If my settlement offer is acceptable to you, then please sign the debt settlement agreement enclosed with this letter and return a copy of the agreement to me.
As soon as I receive the signed agreement from you, I will send you the money order in the amount I have proposed.
