Our customer care department received this email on January 10, 2006. Someone from Heathmill wrote to us and requested to remove some forum posts that involve their name with Cash Today or Cah2day4u. Here is the email that we received.
Now, as all of us know, debt consolidation Care is an open forum. It is the place for all to share their views and thoughts. The posts in the forums solely reflect members' beliefs and we cannot dictate you on what you should think. Hence we replied them:
[quote]Debt consolidation forum is an open forum. This is a lounge for all where they can discuss and debate on whatever issues they like. The comments posted in the forums are public opinion. You are also welcome to post your comments and share your views here. If you want to contradict with any of the opinions you can definitely do it and the whole community will witness it.[/quote]
Then they sent another mail on January 17, 2006.
[quote=Heathmill]Unfortunately, this was not the response we were hoping for. We did try to add responses in our defence, but your mediators removed all traces of them. How can that be an open forum?
Having taken legal advice, we have taken the option to pursue.[/quote]
But how could it be possible? The clarification statement posted by someone from their concern is still live in the forums! You can see the â€œClarification Statement by Heathmillâ€ posted by (firstname.lastname@example.org) here:
If moderators would have deleted your post, then "Clarification Statement by Heathmill" could not be live here. [/quote]
Now it completely depends upon the community to decide what to do next. If we remove these posts, Debt Consolidation Care forum will definitely lose its flavor and people will lose the opportunity of debating and share their opinions. I cannot live in such a world where I do not have the right to speak, what about you? :?:
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.
