Mann Bracken: Is it difficult to deal with them?

member profile picture

I am trying very hard to pay off all my credit card debts. I - being a total idiot went to a debt settlement company. They "suggested" that I not pay my bills, and that they had great relationship with creditors.... What a lie.

Anyway, I am now in a dmp. I'm trying to pay off all my loans 100%. However, Mann Bracken Llc. wants a lump sum payment. I do not have the funds to give them the payment. I offered to pay it off through the DMP program. No deal. They said they would continue with the arbitration and see me there.

Is there anything I can do? I tried calling Chase directly. They said I could only talk to Mann Bracken law firm is a collection agency which threatens to take you to arbitration. Read the discussion to know the way out. that they no longer had the account.

The lady on the phone was very nasty. She told me if it went to arbitration I could pay her attorney fees and court cost. All of this is true information. So not misrepresentation.

I think I may be stuck. But I have a budget, and I am trying to pay everyone. That leaves me very little wiggle room when it comes to something like this.

Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

NewMMC

Hi Mike,

Yes, I would have to say, you *are* better off working through the courts.

Guest,

Yes, with a judgment they can garnish your wages and put a lien on your house. $50,000? You should file bankruptcy!

I got a letter from Mann bracken informing me that Discover Card (where I owe Monies and keep un incresing because of high interest reates) that they are retained by Discover to collect the debt.

I called them on May 16 or May 18, 2009, The telephone # is 800- 678-7720. A female person answered. I asked for Atty Mann Bracken, She answered she is Atty Bracken. I tried to negotiate to pay off less amount to be considered as full payment. She have me on hold. for a few minutes, she told me if I can pay $5,800 and it will be consider as full payment but it is still subject to approval of Discover card.

I told her that I can't afford that but I,ll try to borrow money from my children @5,000.00 and the balance in 8 equal monthly payment of $100.

She said no. And that if I can't paymy account I will sued for judgment and they will my social security monthly retirement pension be garnished. and they will my mobile home in a senior citizen park.

My blood pressure was elevated and I can't sleep that night.
I was scared.

Finally my husband to pay the $5,000.00 which means we
have to cut off our basic needs and medical treatment.

We sent the sheck by certified return receipt. Mail it on 05/27/2009 and they received it on 05/29/2009.

Now they are claiming that they haven't received anything fromme. They even advice me to place a stop payment on the check. I told them I will not make a stop payment. As far as I am concerned they received that check.

Go to National Association for Consumer Advocates for an attorney referral or call AARP (even if you are not a member).
