I enrolled in a dmp last February. I have free housing at present so I have been paying almost all of my paycheck to the dmp. (I owe about $9000) At the current rate I will be in this plan for 2 more years. I need to move out into myu own place, but can't afford it. Is debt settlement an option for me? Or would I just have to walk away from my debts. I can get some low interest loan from a relative. The dmp company (CCCS) have not been very helpful in lowering my interest rates. Most I am paying 15.99%. One is at 23.99? They are very hard to reach and when I do they say they are overwhelmed with people being foreclosed on.
I have no assets except a car. Can somebody advise me? Is it possible for me to do it myself even tho i'm in this program? I don't know what to do.
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.
