I just got a letter from the Law Office of Daniel M. Slane stating I owe $513.86 and that "continued delay in this matter will not be tolerated. If our office hears nothing from you we will act accordingly."
What does "act accordingly" mean? I know there are no debtors in prison but still, a threatening letter kinda set me off edge...
I live in Texas, but this law firm is in Columbus, OH.
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.
