So I closed my bank account...filed all the letter with the FTC, BBB and my AG. so I have gotten all but 2 loans taken care of. 247advances will only communicate via their website, i have to write them a "Help Ticket", they arent using any sort of threats, just told me that I will owe only $200 when I get a new bank account, but I have to give them my new account information. NOT GONNA HAPPEN...so they can just let the charges keep building, I have paid them over $900 on a $200 loan already....then there is BIG...who I hear is a nightmare to deal with. I stalled them for a few weeks saying I havent gotten a new account yet..they werent charging me any fees. They said I had until 9/5 to pay the balance with my new checking information. I got an email saying my payment was returned. but NO phone calls....seems weird..they arent going to just give up i am sure of it...from what I read about these people they are ruthless...so any suggestion on what to do next? oh and all of a sudden I have been getting phone calls and texts to take out new loans?? why would people call to give me money if i am currently " defaulted" on two loans?? Stupid people...I dont want more money...I'm never going through this again.

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.
