Hi, two questions for you great people.
First of all, am I correct that if I am to be served with papers, the law firm which is doing so must have offices in my state (I am in MD)?
My HR dept received a phone call yesterday regarding me. It was from a "Mr. Azena" who said I should call "Mr. Thrower" at the Litigation Dept at WWR Law Firm immediately, they were going to serve me w/papers and wanted to make arrangements to do so out of my office. The phone number they left is 714-380-5874, I looked this number up via the 'net and didn't come up with anything. Additionally, the law firm does not have any offices in CA so that is strange too. I did find out the law firm is "Weltman, Weinberg & Reis Co., L.P.A." and they do not have any offices in the state of MD.
I am embarrassed about the call at work but will send a cease and desist letter to these bozos ASAP to not call me at work. I also asked my HR dept not to accept anymore calls from this firm. I'm not sure if they will comply with my request though.
Additionally, I have received absolutely no correspondence from these people although they did leave a threatening msg on my home voice mail last week stating that they were going to serve me also. Aren't they supposed to provide me with a letter after making the initial phone call? I deleted the phone message and did not call them back since I have had no correspondence with them.
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.
