My friend, Peter, is receiving calls from a credit card company that he won't be able to take out loans at good rates in the future if he doesn't clear his debts asap. It's true that unpaid balance can reduce credit score, but will it have any effect on future loans, too? Is credit score the only factor that the lenders consider while deciding the interest rates on loans?
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.
