I settled a debt(in process of) for certain amount with the government, but there is a note at the bottom which bothers me.
If I understand correctly, this means that I would have to pay the reduced amount, if the government reverses for any reason, correct? This sounds bizarre considering that there is a compromise made with both parties already.
"This confirms your arrangement to settle in full your account for $x amount. Please send in payment in form of check, cashier's check, or money order.
Please note the following exceptions to this compromise: If your account has been reduced by the offsets of any funds owed by the federal government, and that offset is reversed for any reason in the future, this debt will be restored to the extent of that reversal, and you will be required to pay the amount of any reduction caused by a reversal of that offset."
