I have had a Mr. Carter giving me a call telling me that I have an outstanding debt with Zurich Ventures and that I need to send them a payment either via MoneyGram, Credit Card, or Bank account. I have been burned in the past on this, so if anyone out there has any information on them, that would be very helpful. I have the money to pay, but I don't want to be giving it to scammers. Thank you. :?:
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.
