Someone recently stole my identity and all my information and took out a bunch of online payday loans in my name. My bank contacted me due to an overwhelming number of ACH debits to my account causing my account to be overdrawn. I have since closed my account, filed a dispute with the bank and filed a police report for theft of identity. Some of these places have contacted me at work. Most were decent and gave me a fax number so that I could fax a letter and copy of my police report to them but one was rude and nasty and threatened to garnish my wages. I am not sure what else I should do. Any help would be greatly appreciated...I am in Kentucky.
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.
