Sir or Madam,

Re: Account Number

I appreciate that your company is willing to work with me in settling my debt so that I may pay it off. This letter is to make a counter offer in response to the settlement offer made by your company, which I received on Date .

The amount that I propose to settle the debt in full is $. I would also like to request that you remove any late payments or charge-offs on this account from my credit report.

I have several debt accounts that I am attempting to settle as well. Unfortunately, I have a limited amount of funds. So, I can only pay those creditors who are willing to meet my terms. I have already reached several mutually agreeable settlements with other creditors, and I doubt that I'll have enough funds to pay everyone.

If your company is willing to accept my proposal, please sign the attached letter agreeing to my proposal and return a copy to me. As soon as I receive this signed acknowledged agreement, I shall send you a money order in the amount I've proposed.

Sincerely,
Your Signature 
Your Name
