Asset acceptance sending letter for a 12 years old debt
Date: Mon, 11/21/2005 15:59
I recieved a letter from this company saying I owe 1083.78. It is for a sofa I bought about 12 yrs ago. I sold it to a friend that was to take over the payments, she changed my billing address to hers and I never heard about it again assuming it was paid. I pulled my report it was not it was charged off in 1996 for 392.00. Now I am getting letters and phone calls 4 times a week from this company. If it was just the 392.00 I would pay it but 1083.78 is more than the sofa cost and it is in a dump somewhere in Ohio...
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.
