Some company named STCAdavance took a total of $148 in random amounts of my account, i have no idea who they are. I also took a pdl with Impact Cash, but shortly after, sent a C&D letter to them, but still withdrew $75.00 from my account. This is illegal, correct? (Im in North Carolina, and pdl's are prohibited in this state). I went to my credit union today, and they put a credit only hold on my account. Unfortuantely, my account is now negative over $200 because of this, and bills that i had tried to pay have bounced, so i have NSF charges on top of it, and I cant open a new account until it is positive. They said that I have to fill out a police report and such to get the ball rolling. I just want to be sure that I am doing this correctly, and even more so, that i am not doing anything illegal! I had to sign a document at the bank with the 4 charges that I didnt authorize (3 with STCadvance and 1 with Impact Cash) them to take money out of my account. I just want to be sure I am doing things correctly!

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.
