Re: What can be done? If creditor was paid but intrum justitia still demands payment

You don't have to pay them anything! Art. 27 par. 3 of Debt Collection Act (Bundesgesetz über Schuldbetreibung und Konkurs; http://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classifie...002/index.html) says the following:

Niemand kann verpflichtet werden, einen gewerbsmässigen Vertreter zu bestellen. Die Kosten der Vertretung dürfen nicht dem Schuldner überbunden werden.

Loosely translated, it means that when a creditor uses a debt collection agency he may not pass on the cost for their services to the debtor.
