Without getting into too much background...I had a pdl with CTC which is now part of my dmp. Before I officially started on my dmp, I sent a notarized revocation of wage assignment to CTC certified/return receipt. The company handling my dmp also sent these documents. After I mailed my revocation, I notified my payroll department that the wage assignment was voluntary and had been revoked and that CTC might still try to contact them.
About a week after I sent the letter, I received the card back in the mail with an illegible signature indicating it had been received by someone. Then, last week the postman left me a notice saying I had certified mail to pickup, and upon investigation I discovered this is the letter I sent to CTC marked as "Refused" ???
They continue to call me everyday, either my cell or at work. On instruction from my dmp company, I do not answer their calls. However, "Anthony" continues to leave messages. I informed my dmp company that he continues to call and they were just as confused as I was, because when they spoke to CTC they indicated that they would comply no problem and would not continue to contact me.
Last week, the messages left by "Anthony" got a little weird. He would say things like "This is regarding our discussion from yesterday" or "I need to verify some information from our earlier discussion." When I told my dmp company this, they said they didn't have any record of him calling them.
Do I assume that he's just an idiot who doesn't know the difference between a man and a woman (my debt counselor is a man, and that is the only one who he might have had a discussion with when they called him) or do I worry that he has tracked down my payroll department?
I work for the federal goverment so my payroll is nearly a separate entity, and frankly, not the brightest bulbs in the box. I honestly worry that some idiot over there will proceed wiith the wage assignment even though they were told it was revoked and normally, as a federal govt. employer, should only respond to garnishments issued by legal authorities.
I know these are two different issues...I'm just so confused. I tend to be a worrier anyway, and I really can't afford to have some idiot give CTC my entire paycheck.
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.
