I began getting payday loans in April of '07. I was just an inexperienced young adult trying to keep my car and my rent paid for me and my disabled mother. I quickly got trapped into a vicious cycle of debt. I rolled over numerous loans until I ended up with 9 storefront loans!! It finally became too much for me to handle. I've even already used extended payment plans with all the companies who would allow, but I ended up going back to reloan to carry over the burden of the remaining loans and my escalating bills. 8 of my loans will soon be in default. I did stop payments on the checks and closed my account and opened a new account. I placed my closed account on credit only status; the bank will now call for authorization for any debits. I just missed my due date for all the loans and haven't contacted most of the lenders yet. One called me at work and immediately became rude and threatening when I told her I couldn't pay the total amount or the interest to roll over. She threatened a lawsuit and wage garnishment. I know this is possible, but there is no way I can afford a wage garnishment from 8 separate lenders. I am so nervous about contacting the remaining companies because I know that these places just want their money and do not want to work with you. I am going to draft a letter revoking wage assignment rights and access to my bank account as well as a directive to not call me at work. However I fear that this will not stop these companies from harassing me at work. I know I've made a huge mistake and I want to pay but I just can't pay all at once. The one lady I talked to already denied my request for a payment arrangement. Are there anymore suggestions as to what else I should do?? I don't want to just sit around and wait for court, and I fear some of these companies will reject any payments I may make. Please help me! I am overwhelmed! I have sincerely learned my lesson. If I pay $50 a month to each lender I can have them paid within about 10-12 months. That's all I can afford, almost more. Any suggestions or support or advise would be greatly appreciated. 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.
