Well with help from this site I have taken back control of my bank account. I have payment arrangements in my budget with all lenders but one.
A little info I live in Missouri. I have a pdl that I can't seem to get to work with me. They are Atlas Money Online. I borrowed 300.00 from them and now owe 567.50.
I have sent certified mail to them the c&d as well as the revoke of wage assignment and I gave this to my payroll dept as well. I have filed complaints with the ftc, my ag, and the bbb. They refuse to listen to me. They threaten to call my work if I don't call them which I do and get a vm and I leave a messge that I will only contact them thru email. So they call me at worrk 3 times every other day. Then I got an email today saying:
"We still have no response from you regarding your account. We have made several attempts to contact you for this matter, but all our attempts have failed.
Your entire account is now seriously past due. Unless we receive payment from you within FIVE BUSINESS days, or can work out a mutually agreeable arrangement to discharge this obligation, we will report the matter to the retail credit companies which will negatively impact your credit rating.
Subsequently, the account will be turned over to an outside recovery company or to our attorneys for further action. Since this is a costly procedure for both of us and will negatively impact your credit rating. I would suggest that you call immediately so that we can clear the matter at once without resorting to such procedures.
Once you have paid your balance you will be eligible for a Line of Credit up to $300!
Please call 1-866-935-2336 ext. 502 to discuss repayment with your account manager Todd Smith.
Or, Click for Live Chat with a live representative during business hours."
One day I spoke with someone and said the word hell and they hung up on me. I really don't feel like dealing with this going on my credit nor getting an attorney involved from this company but they won't give me an address to send payments, no will they stop calling me at work, nor will they accknowledge emails I have sent.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the pay off 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.
