I got a disconnect notice from my utility co yesterday, it stated on there that if I have a health condition to notify them. I contacted my neurologists office and had them fax a letter. I was rudely told that this was only effective for 30 days...wth...I wish my condition only lasted 30 days.
Anyway, I went to my local action program for assistance in paying this electric bill...I don't know if they can help, the lady told me not to worry about it and that they would be sending me a letter and if they did pay some of it it would be posted today at the electric co.
I feel like such a loser can't afford to pay my own electric bill. I tried to pay it through out the year since January and my bill was 1100.00. They shut it off last month and I had to pay them $741.00 to get it turned back on. I had to pawn my diamond ring that my dad had made for all three of us girls and the diamond necklace...I can pick them up in August but still I feel so quilty but at least I didn't do a pdl that is one thing I am glad about.

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.
