I received a phone call from Landmark stating I would be served with a summons for 2 counts. 1 for check fraud and another for worthless check. I called to see what the issue was, as I haven't used my maiden name in 7 years. The man on the other end of the line refused t give me his company address, his location, and refused to send me a letter of dunning. He stated they don't do that. They weren't a collection agency. His job was to inform me of the issues and serve me with a summons if I refused to co-operate with making a payment arrangement. He said he would be in contact with my supervisor and that he would be out to my place of employment this afternoon. He has my old address on file and used my maiden name. Any help on this?
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.
