I've been reading through some of the threads and noticed one of the threads about Western Sky/Cash Call. Is this loan considered illegal even though technically it isn't a pdl? I have a loan that originated through Western Sky but they turned it over to Cash Call. I'm not entirely sure if the loan was originally with Western Sky because I never paid them but paid CC. I did initially make the loan through Western Sky. I am from Virginia and have paid about 500 dollars more than the principal so far (I've never gotten behind). How do I find out if the original loan was actually with Western Sky? It was all done online.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the pay off amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
