Got a letter from these people today for a Citi CC that previously was with GC Card Services , another CA. I sent a DV letter to GC Card Services and never got a reply.I'm guessing I need to send another DV letter to United Collection Bureau ? Another question : The new CA identifies themselves as United Collection Bureau Inc but checks should be made out to CitiCorp Credit Services Inc. :?:
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.
