I'm sorry to hear about your trouble, and agree it sucks. I feel badly for you.In principle, and a perfect world, the $30.00 collection fee would be waived. I would weigh whether my having my credit history ruined over $30.00 would be worth it. Personally, I think it's a small price to pay; yes, it probably qualifies as blackmail, and it stinks. But in the grand scheme of things, it's a small amount of money now compared to what it might cost you later if they report to the credit bureaus.And I would be veeery leery of leaving a box or book of checks at the office, even in a locked drawer or office. I wouldn't trust someone who might find them by 'accident' to resist the temptation. As you've experienced, it only takes one idiot to screw things up.I hope this doesn't sound harsh, but consider it tuition in the school of Life.MadamHusker 1~ Would deck a pursesnatcher if I saw one.
