About 7 months ago this number, and others from the same scam, started calling my cell phone. The first few times they called and tried to pump me for information. I told them to mail me the paperwork and I would have my lawyer take a look at it. They insisted I must pay right now over the phone. I hung up, and looked up the law firm they claimed to work for, only to find they only specialize in corporate bankruptcy. I called their offices to confirm this and was told by the secretary she has had several complaints of the same nature. I then reported the numbers I had on my phone from this company to the attorney general, as well as the number they left for me to call back. On top of being harassed myself, two of my friends that I often use as a reference on applications for things such as work and a car loan, are being called as well and told they are involved in a legal lawsuit with me. I was just wandering if other people are having this same problems and have been able to shake these people off. They call 7-10 times a day, even Sundays, and its been going on for about 7 months now. I have blown a fog horn into my phone (my fathers bright idea), threatened them, flat out told them I reported them to the authorities, and ignored them. I am sick and tired of being harassed, so if anyone has some new ideas please share with me! Thanks.

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.
