1218_08 McCarthy Burgess and Wolf uses daily robot phone calls trying to collect 'bills' on behalf of AT&T. The insidious part of this is that they will not send a printed bill that you can dispute, unless you are dumb enough to give them your address over the phone when they catch you in their robot phone call web. If you call AT&T, they'll verify that your account is clean and their is no record on you account of these scammers having a bill to collect.

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.
