I'm writing this after my boss told me that a, Francesca, from the law office of John P. Frye, called my job looking for me.
Are they allowed to do that?
Someone has called before and i said if he can call me on my cell because i didnt feel comfortable talking about this at my job. He said that he understands, but they have been trying to reach me at my house and they needed to resolve this right away because my case was being reviewed and that they will be sending it to an attorney in my state ( I live in Connecticut).
I'm not denying that i owe money and what i have been doing is sending them what i can afford, each week. So far, i checked the status of some of the money orders and they have been cashed and i haven't gotten anyone of the others back...so far.
they have been calling, and i admit, i have not picked up or contacted them. I know how the conversation is going to go:
*What ur paying is not acceptable
*U have 15 days to settle this
*U need to pay this amount by a certain date
Been there done that, so thats y i haven't contacted them, BUT, i have been paying what i can afford each week. Granted it's not alot of money, but every little bit helps, right?
Anyway, what is going to happen in the long-run? Will they still take me to court? Everytime the phone rings or someone knocks on the door, i seriously panic. I put myself in this situation and i'm trying to get out, but when i'm told that i still may be taken to court and/or what i'm paying is not acceptable, i feel like i'm wasting my time.
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.
