OK Folks, here's the skinny. My wife and I were discharged from Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in April of this year. We just got a letter dated May 31 of this year from the trustee informing us that three creditors filed proofs of claim. I will be contacting my BK attorney about this and hoping it's much ado about nothing. So what exactly is happening here?
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.
