I received a call today from some outfit saying that beings that I have not responded they are left with no choice but to pursue the matter legally. The number which appeared on my caller ID was 1-877-455-5001. When I called it back I got a recorded message. I couldn't understand or figure out what the name of the business was. When I did an 800 number look up...none of the sites came back with a name of a business for this number either.
The message went on to state that if I left a message with them to please reference file # 5,454,680. (pretty high for a file number??)
The only thing I have out there is I took out a payday loan 3 years ago from an illegal online payday lender. I never paid the full amount back because they were not legal in my state. The name of the illegal payday lender was Together Cash. I am wondering if this outfit might have something to do with them??
Any help with this matter would be appreciated.
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.
