I got a call from jim king today from legal mediation practice as if there is anything legal about them, They called my brother my boss, my best friend & my department directors office how they got that number is beyond me. Anyhow I should say I am from ohio I took out a loan with e-payday-loans for 3000.00 back in 12-07 pd 2 finance charges + 50.00 to pay down on it grand total of 230.00. they I now owe 1450.00 for 2 online checks both for different amounts. 1. for 770.00 the 2nd for 680.00. They claim I have untill high noon on sat. 7-26-08 to pay this amount or they will file charges according to my state laws. I told them this is funny since the company they represent hasnt followed the laws of my state with regards to ohio pdl laws. They said my state laws only apply to the bad caheks they claim I wrote n ot the loan I requested. My question is I need to call them today to inform them I will not pay these outrageous fees they are requesting. how should I handel this. Thanks..

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.
