I know these people go by a million names. I have 2 loans out with them. One was a total of $550 ($400 principal and $150 finance) and $130 ($100 principal and $30 finance). Just talked to them and set up paying the $130 by next Friday and the supervisor said we can work on the $550 over Sept., Oct and Nov.
Again, do I want to pay these. HECK NO. But they are legal and I live in the state of PA so I HAVE to pay them.
Of my 13 PDL's, I feel I making some progress.
Oh, after this call I had a call from the wonderful scam artist from US National Bank again. I almost fell for that a couple of weeks ago. I asked the Pakistani gentleman by the name of Mike Johnson how he can look at himself in the mirror in the morning and I hope he had a forgiving God or he surely is going to hell........
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.
