Making such small payments is likely to come back to bite you because you risk being sued for the money if you do not pay what you owe in full on a timely basis. And, I doubt that you would be able to get away with making $1 payments for very long.

Now, if the collector is being abusive to you -- swearing at you, making threats he or she cannot make good on, and so on -- then the collector is violating the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and you may have a legal case against the collector. I recommend that you read the first chapter of Debt Collection Answers online for free to become familiar with your legal rights. And, if you decide that your rights are being violated then it's a good idea to consult with consumer law attorney .
