So, I have been searching online as a friend of mine took out one of those horribly expensive loans from Western Sky. You may have seen the commercials, they are such a scam, and she was in such need I guess she didnt really think too much into it.
Anyway, she is now terrified as she has lost her job and the payments are something like 180 a month- which she cannot pay. They (western sky) told her that she cannot file bk and include them as they are an Indian reservation and a sovereign nation- is this true? How can a company lock people into a loan with no way out? Anyway, I have found no answers online and thought I would ask here. Thanks..

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.
