Letter from AFNI about debt in collections

Postby dmband » Fri Feb 18, 2011 2:40 am

My gf just got a letter from afni the CA that took over a debt she owes Verizon for $479 which is scheduled to stay on her report until 2015. The letter is a settlement offer for $25.00 wondering why they are willing to settle for such a small amount? It says if she pays the $25.00 the account will be made settled in full. This just seems too good to be true. Any ideas? THANKS.

I myself have excellent credit but have more than one friend who has been conned by collection agencies to settle and their credit reports were not updated after. Get it in writing that the account will be updated properly after payment!

I found this blog about AFNI Collections.


Are those allegations true?
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred
