what is the impact of a $14 bill sent to a collection agency?
I refused to pay a $14.00 late fee that was tacked on to an itemized invoice that I received AFTER the account was sent to collections. I paid the invoice in question the same week I received it. I refused to pay the late fee as a matter of principle. What impact will my not paying it have on my credit score, if the $14.00 late fee does in fact go to collections?
