So they are willing to settle an original 300 balance for 1100? Wow, how generous of them.
If they already had a lawsuit they'd just have you served. By the time they file, they are not going to negotiate with you, they are going to be serving you. I'd remind them it's against the law to threaten to bring suit when you don't intend to back that threat up (for them, not for us...).
I've never heard of this vulture agency but they sound very typical. And honestly for that amount of money it's doubtful they'd bring a full on lawsuit against you anyway - small claims would be a better route. So what I'm reading tells me they are bluffing.
Be very careful though in any dealings with them. You could simply try to wait them out and see if they serve you and if they do, get an attorney and deal with it.
Good luck with dealing with it whatever you do.
