I got a phone call from "Inspector" Bill Stewart with Graham Noble and Associates and boy was it illegal. Not only did he give out my name, birth date, and social security number to me before he knew it was me but he also threatened to have me arrested (as if). I don't know where this guy got his info from, but I would sure like to get his. What I don't know about, is why he is "filing charges" against me in Texas when I have never lived in Texas. The original creditor is based in Texas but this account is well past the SOL in Utah (4 years) and is in the last year on my credit report. He proceeded to tell me that I should think about where I wanted to put my kids (since he "knew" I had kids) and what a bad parent I was. He got irate when I wouldn't say what he wanted me to say. I never acknowledged the debt and just kept saying "what is this in regards to". Pretty funny if you ask me. He claimed that he had all the information he needed and said the Sheriff would be at my door in a few days. Yeah right. This guy and Graham Noble and Associates needs to be shut down or at least fined. The business licence in Utah has even expired. Anyone else deal with these people?

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.
