I have a question I hope someone can answer. I recently received a call from a credit card company telling me I owe almost $2000 on an account that I did not set up. Today I received a statement in the mail. I suspect my ex girlfriend (recently deceased) somehow took out this account and put my name on it.
Is this possible? And if so, how do I prove that it is not my responsibility. I am in a debt management program, trying to clean up my own debts and this is the last thing I need.
Please someone, advise me what to do!!!
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.
