When I was 18, 12 years ago, I signed up for the army and they had my SS card and birth certificate. When it came time to sign the papers and join, I was disqualified because of my medical problems, I really wanted to get in and I hid the fact.
The next day I called and they said they lost my papers. I thought about it last night and am thinking that may be someone is using my information and ruining my credit. At that time they paid for the new documents for me.
What are the chances that after all these years that someone could still be using my information?
If I can get proof they lost it way back, which I doubt, would that stand up in court? I have about 7 accounts on my credit report that are not mine.
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.
