Has anyone heard of Simon Associates (unsure of this name as usual person could barely speak english) or phone numbers 949-743-1156 or 856-831-0640? If so, who are these people? They are claiming the same crap as Bass Associates, the dowloading your information yady yady but however they don't tell you what they are downloading with the exception of some 3 counts of internet banking fraud on behalf of the good ol US national bank and that you need to have your attorney contact them they don't tell you what it is you supposedly owe or to who you owe. Has anyone ever had their attorney contact one of these people. I haven't heard from anyone in approx. two years, I found you and contacted our AG's office who phoned who was then Prelitigation Services/Bass Associates and now these jokers are calling. What gives!
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.
