I just got a notice stating that RISE is no longer legal to operate in the state of Louisiana...that they will not be issuing any future loans to anyone within LA. So where does that leave me with them? I have been paying on my loan with them for weeks but the interest is so high. I hate to ask, but does this give me any way out?
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.
