If you can settle for 1/2 the amount by borrowing the money from family, than i would do that. I think the offer is decent.

BUT, make sure you get everything in writting! The amount that is now considered "Paid in Full." - and a statement that the collector cannot sell your account to anyone else- this I think comes with the territory of Is the collector still representing the Credit Card Company or are they solo. + also negotiate what is placed on your Credit Report. "Paid in Full"- much better than- Charged Off.

once you have what you need in writing and have paid- also get a final letter.
