I found this forum while doing an exhaustive search for information on the FDRS. Other than their own ads and articles, I can't find much of anything about them. I tried to search the forums for previous posts about them, but found nothing.
What is the Federal Debt Relief Program? Have any of you guys ever dealt with FDRS or know anything about them?
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.
