How do people review National Debt Relief Program?
According to some consumers, National Debt Relief Program is a scam. Customers feel that the program is all about settling unpaid dues for less than the original balance. They say that anyone joining the program is asked to stop making payments before the company starts negotiating with the creditors. However, the negotiations don't begin until the customer accumulates enough funds for the settlement. This hurts the customer's credit scores big time.
Here are some observations that consumers made about the program:
A way of making money: A poster in the DebtCC forums claims that National Debt Relief Program is a scam. He says that the company offering the program does little to reduce the debt payments; rather they are more concerned about making money. Read more.
No written document: A person says that the company does not provide you with any written document. So, you are unaware of whether there has been any agreement between them and the creditors. He feels that when you have no written agreement, you can do nothing if you end up being sued by the original creditor. Get the details.
Misjudged as Government agency: Some customers say they misjudged the company as a government organization. However, the company bears no connection whatsoever with the National Debt Relief Stimulus Plan which is a government-backed program offered to those who are struggling to pay their bills. Neither does it have any connection with National Credit Relief Agency which is a financial counseling company. Know more.

I am currently in Chapter 13 and I am having a difficult time paying on the monthly plan, a payment plan that I could not afford in the beginning but trusted my Attorney who informed me that I can modify it. Unfortunately the Judge rejected it and now I am expected to pay that amount. How did it end up being so high, mean test, I was informed. Well, I am at the risk of it being dismiss because I am only sending in the money I can afford. I received a letter in the mail from National Debt Relief (Settlement Company) claiming they can reduced my payment down to what I can afford. They claim they are a governmental agency and advise me to stop sending money to the Trustee and enroll into their program. Have anyone heard of National Debt Relief Plan?
