I have a quick question and do not wish to get a thread covered with barbed wire started again. My question pertains to the collection agency for Diner's Club. I have worked out an arrangement with them to send additional $$ over and above CCCS until February when I can pay this one off with a bonus I will receive at that time. The collection agent is a snippy fellow and wants my checking account info. He says they can only accept this payment plan as long as I surrender this info to him. He says that he will issue an automatic draft each month to cover the $$ agreed to.

My counselor at CCCS told me to send checks out on the same day of each month (as agreed) and not to give them the info. Mr. Snippy went balastic. He says I am not cooperating and am risking the great deal he has worked out for me. What should I do? (In advance, Eric if you are reading this I know I should just pay the bill (LOL-no hard feelings). Any advice from experience would be helpful.

Thanks a bunch. By the way, 3rd payment to CCCS is history and 4th is coming up. 4th represents 1/13th of the plan. February bonus in going to reduce the plan length from 52 months to 49.
