The number is 866-489-0979, they called and threatened legal action. I live in Alabama. I asked them for a faxed copy of documentation for my records and she said that she could fax in one hour and I had two hours to wire my money. I did not wire any money because she never faxed me the documents. She called and left a very threatening message that she was pursuing legal avenues. I contacted my local DA's office who referred me to the sherrif and they told me that they can threaten all they want but this is a civil matter that would have to go thru the proper legal channels. I am terrified. If I owe fine, send me documentation. Am I doing the right thing, please tell me......HELP

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.
