Help I had my identity stolen online, and now a company called MYCASHNOW or credit protection depot, not sure, is debiting hundreds of dollars out of my bank account, I had to close my account to keep them away. I don't know where they came from or how the managed to get my account numbers. I had a fraud alert last year put on all my accounts. my information was sold last year to a unnamed source.I have contacted a attorney, and the Attorney General for the state of TN, also consumer affairs. I tried to speak with the credit protection depot, they were nasty and very unhelpful, they threated to take my to court and I am horrified. Please help.

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.
