I received a call from a blocked number which I didn't answer. In the message that was left a woman, who only identified herself as a Mrs. Allen, claimed to be trying to reach me or a legal representative because I had been named as a respondent in a case of malicious attempt to defraud a lending institution. She then said something weird like she had been asked to forward this to my jurisdiction.
Anyway, she never identified whoever she was supposedly representing and left a call back number of 877-817-0231. Just wondering if anyone might have any experience with this and whether it is legit or not. Thanks!
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.
