Complaint: Account No. ******-3SUBJECT: Original Settlement Remain in Effect with LBS Financial Credit UnionThis letter is to confirm the fact neither ******* ** ***** nor ***** ** ***** came to a mutual agreement with LBS Financial Credit Union to pay a lump sum payment of $9,627.65. However, what ******* ** *****, ***** ** ***** and LBS Financial Credit Union agreed upon was a lump sum payment of $5000.00, and that LBS Financial Credit Union would report our loan as settle for less than full balance on our credit report. On Thursday, February 13, 2014, ******* ********** (LBS Financial Credit Union Recovery Specialist), **** ***** (Executive Loan Officer) and I (***** *****) reached a mutual agreement in the sum of $5000.00 to pay-off the loan. Ms. ********** stated she had to consult with management for approval. Ms. ******* called back the same day, February 13, 2014 indicating she had received management/supervisor (Mr. *** *********) approval to accept the $5000.00 to settle the debt. To my surprise I was notified Wednesday, February 26, 2014 by both Ms. ********** and Mr. ********* stating there has been an error on their part and LBS would like to rescind their offer. I totally disagreed and I refused to their new settlement. As a consumer I cannot renegotiate my offer once I agreed to it and endorsed the letter of agreement. Therefore, it is unfair due the fact LBS Financial Credit Union is a financial institution they have the right to rescind their offer to me. It is ludicrous for Ms. ********** and Mr. ********* both to ask me to agree to such a ridiculous agreement. I said NO I will not agree to a settlement of $9,627.65, when I agreed to settle in the sum of $5000.00. We had an agreement in which, Ms. **********, Mr. ***** and I signed the required document/letters to seal the agreement, how dare they ask me to rescind the agreement. ******* ** ***** filed bankruptcy in 2012 which relinquish him from this debt, so why is LBS Financial Credit Union requesting that he sign-off on any document. By law LSB Financial Credit Union is not to make contact with him at ALL. As for myself I agreed to pay $5000.00 to satisfy this debt and that is all I plan to pay, due the fact LBS Financial Credit Union accepted my offer. The balance of my loan according to my credit report $7791.00 not $9627.65. Nowhere in my loan documents does it stipulate this loan is to accrue additional interest, other than what has been access to the loan from the initial startup of the loan.
Desired Settlement: For LBS Financial to keep their original settlement agreement of $5000.00 and to file my account as settle/closed with the three credit bureaus.
March 22, 2014
Dear Ms. *****:
This email is in response to the Better Business Bureau Complaint (ID *******) that you filed with them regarding your loan with LBS Financial Credit Union. Upon receiving your compliant, I personally investigated it by following up with our VP of Collections, ** ******, and his staff of *** ********** and *** *********.
I apologize on behalf of the credit union for not honoring the original settlement agreement amount of $ 5,000 in a letter mailed to you dated February 13, 2014. We have agreed to honor this agreement and my understanding is that *** ********** was in contact with you by telephone yesterday to convey that message to you. The February letter stated that you had until March 20, 2014 to pay us the agreed upon $ 5,000 in order to settle your debt with us. Since we have not yet received this amount from you we are willing to extend this agreement until March 31, 2014 in order to allow you some additional time to pay this agreed upon amount.
Once we receive the $ 5,000 payment from you on or before March 31, 2014 we will then notify the credit bureaus that your loan with us was setttled for less than the full balance on your credit report. We trust this response is satsifactory and resolves the complaint you filed with the Better Business Bureau. We take seriously how we treat our members/customers and desire to provide the best service possible to all of our valued members.
We will look forward to receiving the agreed upon $ 5,000 from you by March 31, 2014 so that we can then update your credit report as mentioned above.
******* ** ******

Better Business Bureau:
I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and find that this resolution would be satisfactory to me. I will wait for the business to perform this action and, if it does, will consider this complaint resolved.
