offer to collector, no response
I mailed a letter to the collection agency offering to pay in full in return for their agreement to remove the debt from the credit reporting agencies. after three weeks, still no response. As per the info I got in the internet if I dont received a response within 15 days, I should withdraw the offer and request full verification of the debt. is there any specific way to do this? and what's next after that if they don't respond?

It is THEIR choice to accept the offer, or not.  They are under absolutely no obligation to accept a pay-for-delete offer so you may just have to work on paying it off. You should have requested verification of debt first, before making the offer.  Please search FDCPA and also look in the articles here to learn better negotiation techniques.
