Help. I've been in a program with Federal debt relief System since February. I'm getting really scared that I'm being scammed. I don't know what to do. I need some advice.

i would say if you're not gettng any kind of 'feedback', and you don't see results, on your Credit Report yet...then I would say this company isn't doing ANYTHING for you. Believe or not, I recieved a call today, from a Debt company. According to them, "they had my file infront of them" and "they could see I had over $10,000 in credit card debt". They "offered to help me out of this debt." Kinda funny...since I only have 2 credit cards and they are EACH a $300.00 limit. Kinda creepy!!

Paul: I totally agree with you about the guy posting in here. He sent me a message back in November offering me his services and I declined. Instead I handled all my debts myself and would like to report that I have really turned everything around. I've paid off 3 debts and am about to pay off my last.

I thought it was kind of fishy how he offered his services for free... and then another guy with a screenname, yet it still said "guest" underneath it posted: "WOW!! I cant believe a company actually offered free services..." I'm sure it was the same guy posing as someone else - really underhanded, in my opinion. I was a bit sketched out by that and was not about to get scammed again!

I swear, there's some real scum bags out there.

paul, thanks for the advise....i have gotten advise from this site on my pdl's and trust the community..

I am thinking of going on my own to work things out with my creditors...i really think i can do on my own...

just want some advise now on this side of the table with debt consolidation or debt settlement...seems to me that creditors will want to work with you instead of the other..just don't know....any advise??
