I live in Connecticut and fell into the payday loan trap! Once the finance charges for my loans go through tomorrow my entire paycheck will be gone. I currently have 11 loans out and can not pay any of them off. There are 2 loans that I have paid the finance charge for over a year now and another loan that I have been paying on since February 2008. I need to know how to get out of this trap, I am a single parent and can not afford anything right now!!
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.
