tenant's privacy

the amount quoted was correct and that it is owed is not in dispute. felt it inappropriate to tell a visiting friend that they needed to help pay the past due rent and gave the amount. thought it was against the law to disclose personal financial info.

Pay the money and save the embarassment.

Actually no, it is not a violation of your privacy and landlord could report it to the credit bureaus and then EVERYONE you have credit with will know.

You are obviously embarassed so pay the money. What if sheriff had come to serve you an eviction notice? Now, THAT, would be embarassing.
