I’m wondering how likely this actually is. Taking into consideration the total amount of my debt and the fact that prior to it being sent to the agency, there were numerous late payments on it (at least 12).

Im also wondering what the worst thing that can happen to me is if I continue to not make payments. My financial situation is ****** right now and I don’t see myself being able to make any substantial payments anytime soon. I also have an overdue hospital bill and a parking ticket; what if I can’t pay those off anytime soon?
