Collector Not Applying My Payments
I make payments on multiple debts through Cambridge Credit Counseling service. One of the debt collectors hasn't applied a single payment I've made, yet I've paid off almost a third of the total amount owed. Is that legal? Can they take my money and just keep it without applying to my account? I did verify that the account being paid through the counseling service is the correct account #.
