Trustco Bank was listed on the list of non check systems banks that the wonderful MCA put together.
As I am a customer of theirs, I went in to ask a question and saw they now have little cards that say "all new accounts are verified through check systems". I didn't ask for details, but just thought I would point this out.
The question is, if they are verfiying all new accounts, will they run old accounts through it? I have an almost 2 year history with them and there have been no issues with my account, but I show up in EWS. Should I be worried and looking for a new bank?
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.
