So irritated right now... they let me do a hardship program where I don't have to pay the monthly fee for 4 months supposedly without penalty or interest charges... well guess what...they jacked my interest rate up to 27% from 17% ... ><
How the hell can someone who is financially in a pickle pay them more? I don't understand why creditors raise your rates when you don't make a lot or in a tight spot. If you can't pay what they currently want how will you pay more?
So, now I dunno what to do after this 4 month period is over. I owe about 10k on the card and the payment was 302 dollars before they jacked it up.

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.
