Hello, I am here usually for the payday loan group where many wonderful people have helped me in many ways. Now I am trying to help someone :) My friend (who does not have internet) had his identity stolen. He tried to sign up for cable and they said he owed $571.66 from an address he never lived in. Sadly, we know the person who did live there. We are still trying to figure out how this happened - why didn't they check the lease or at least a photo ID? To make it worse, my friend was homeless at the time and was staying in motels so has no proof of address. He was def. not living there. The person who did this is in jail for other charges.
My friend is back on his feet now.. he works, found a new apartment, etc. He even now has money for extras, such as cable and found this out. He is worried about how this would affect his credit. He does not have any support from family and asked for my help. I was hoping someone here might be able to help him? I know I sure get a lot of support here. 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.
