I have been trying to settle with CHASE and they are quite tuff, in my opinion. I went in low and they gave me a flat NO and basically tried to settle for 50% and still got another NO and they came back with 65% BUT they are not willing to send me a settlement letter first. They want me to send the money first-which I don't have that is why i wanted to settle for a lot less than 50%-and refuse to send the letter. Now I am stuck. They said call back in 48hrs, but for what if I don't have the 65% they are asking?!?! Do I move on to another card and try to settle with them? What should I do?? Pl;ease anyone HELP!!!! I'm drowning here!
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.
