The FCC announced today that it has received nearly 10,000 complaints since the Do Not Call Registry came into effect October 1, 2003. The FCC has also issued eight citations for Do Not Call Registry violations.
I have been called over and over again by a Stephanie Jones (1-877-337-3099) True Logic Financial, Colorado. I have gone to their site and complained about this person calling me for the past 2-3 weeks @7pm or 8pm -- I let the answering machine take it but if I answer it is a recording and a series of ref. numbers...no way to talk to her. I have also noted that I am on the Do Not Call List thru the FCC and that I intend to followup on this with them. Anne Vogler
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.
