  1. My account will be showing as ‘paid in full’ with no future liability or involvement.
  2. Any lawsuit filed against me will be immediately dismissed and no future litigation will be made on the said account.
  3. All the negative information related to the account will be removed from the credit bureaus’ reports.

I have several other delinquent accounts and I will only be able to pay the creditors who will accept a settlement amount I can afford.

I hereby enclose a copy of my financial credentials for your consideration.
