offer multiple payment options to a debtor (including PayPal, Western Union,
credit cards, checks, electronic funds transfer, debit cards, or balance
transfer cards); the ability to automatically make an immediate payment or
initiate an immediate transfer of the settlement payment online by use of a
credit / debit / charge / entertainment card or smart card, stored value card,
online creditable purse or module, or another online-accessible way; and a
process by which a debtor can settle and pay with multiple creditors during a
given session utilizing the DebtResolve system in one or multiple rounds which
may include a power round or a facilitation message.

    Co-Chairman and CEO James Burchetta of Debt Resolve stated: "The '114
Patent, when combined with the DebtResolve online dispute auction settlement
system, now provides patent protection for settlement and settlement payments
online. We are delighted that the U.S. Patent Office has granted us this
fourth patent which further strengthens our intellectual property and is a
barrier to entry to others in the online settlement of debt."
