Was I tricked? I recently settled a debt with a collection agency; Dominion Law Associates in VA. The debt was an old one from American Express, I offered 53% of the debt and they accepted. I did a lot of research online and made sure I documented everything - sent off certified letters of the agreement, as well as demanded documatation from them that the debt was settled in full, which I received. Today I received a new bill from American Express, stating that they received the $5,000 and now they want the rest, about $4,900 by Aug. 13 - although their statement said the account was closed and cancelled, it also stated I had a credit limit of $8,000 and available credit of $3900 - huh? If I have oodles of proof that they accepted my payment as "settled in full" Why is AMEX still demanding the rest? Will this ever end?
