There are usually a lot of costs associated with the collection of a debt. For instance a law firm may collect 10% on each payment that you make as a collection fee and interest will also be added, not to mention all the other legal costs. I would however suggest that you ask them to furnish you with a itimised account and then consult an attorney to establish whether you were not over charged.
