It's been about 3-4 months since this CA posted a $3134 debt of a credit card that i already settled w/ National Recovery CA for $1800. The account was settled on dec 06. This new CA account appeared Feb 08. I sent my settlement letter to them and they said they will delete the wrong info from my credit report. I've also sent the letter to the Big 3's and opened an dispute. I've got the results and they all came back as I still owe the money. I don't know what else to do. The account was settled years ago and now a new collection agency says I still owe money even if i showed them the settlement letter which says "Account successfully settled/paid in full. Account closed" HELP!!!!
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.
