    Can a collection Agency charge me extra fees that are "late fees"?

    What can I do when the hospital refuse to give me more details related to the pricing of my bill? ( they sent me a bill with no details at all)
    Thank you for your help.

    They can charge you ten million dollars, and hope you agree to pay.

    If you refuse, they'll likely ding your credit 9so what, credit ain't nothing but a trap), and then they'll sue you.

    They say their say, you say your say, a judge decides.

    They still get no money, they get a judgment assuming the judge believes their say over your say.

    Either way, they have to rry and enforce the judgment.

    Why not write them BOTH a letter and request more details so you VERIFY what you owe and arrange to pay what you owe?

    Then wait, don't agree until they send you the details you requested.

    Keep copies of BOTH letters, and make sure you send them via FedEx, UPS, or USPS (registered, return receipt requested).

    1. Yes, they can charge late fees.
    2. Write & ask for an itemized statement of what you owe.
    You don't have to pay anything technically unless they get a court judgment against you. They then can try & collect on the judgment.
