I had an account with walmart that was opened on Oct. 9th 2012. The account was sold to Blitt and Gaines in 2016. I was on a payment plan with them and I had paid down my account to 1,000 dollars. Life happens and I was unable to keep up with the payments. They froze my bank account yesterday; and it was over 3,000 dollars that they had on a hold. I didn't have that money in my account so now my account is frozen and in the negative. I was told I can go to a legal aid lawyer and have it removed due to the accounts age and my privacy rights being violated. Please help
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff 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.
