Sub: #1 New Horizon'sFri, 05/04/2012 - 14:23



I contacted them about 10 years ago when I was really down on my luck and falling behind on bills. They told me to send a MONEY ORDER for $299 and that would get the ball rolling on my path to better financial footing. I was told to do the following:
1) Stop paying my monthly credit card payments (MAN DID THAT COME BACK TO BITE ME LATER)
2) Contact all my creditors to stop calling me and to start calling the name and number New Horizon's gave me.

As a result of the above actions, my interest rates on my credit cards shot up through the roof for non payment and my credit score dropped even further.

When I tried to contact the company I was told that they were dropping me as a customer because I did not follow their instructions to the letter and that I harassed them on the phone and that was a violation of their policy and they would not refund my $299.

I can not say enough bad things about them even 10 years later. They offer false hope and steal money. My advice to people in financial trouble is do what I did, make major changes in your spending habits and get a 2nd job.

Let them pull it off you visa walmart card and you are paid. Dont forget to claim it on your taxes as you have to pay the IRS the taxes on the differances in all settlements . I would go on my own. Remember third parties involved in your collection can not attach wages or sue you. I dont answer the phone or the door and I refuse to have any contact. Then when I am ready I call the main card holder to negoiate the loest amount that they will give me Then I tell them ok take it out of my Visa card that I put money into and then use my money whenever I want. Cards hold up to 1000 each and it only cost you $3 to get them and they cash your checks too. No more ripp off banks to deal with.

I used them for the last 14 months and they are useless. They promise your credit won't be hurt and that they can settle your accounts for 20 to 30%. They are all lies. I fired them last month and after paying them over $3,000 they offered me a $200 refund. I'm going to complain to whoever will listen. They are ruthless liars. You can put your money to better use by just settling with the credit card companies yourself. The first time I needed them was because I was being sued by one of the credit card companies. They wanted an extra $250 just for advice. They are no better than the credit card companies. I just got a copy of my credit report and most of the cards have been charged off. The first settlement offer they offered me was 50% and that was 50% of $5,000 which was a $4,000 balance when I quit paying them. I am disabled also and they said there was a program they had that would help me even more. A supervisor was supposed to contact me but never did. This went on about 3 different times. I finally found out they no longer offer this program. I am so frustrated that I even started this with them. NEW HORIZONS sucks!!!!!!!!!

Sub: #10 New Horizon gave me a debt relif loan for my mortgage which was Fri, 05/01/2009 - 07:26



New Horizon gave me a debt relif loan for my mortgage which was 3 months behind. Seems to be working good for me they gave me a 5% interest rate and no payments for 6 months after the original start date. I would give them 5 stars based on service up to this point. But it sounds like you are looking more so for credit card relif.
