I was scheduled to make my final principal only payment to Credit Protection Depot for MyCashNow on 12/2. Because I was out of town I called on 12/2 to tell them I wouldn't easily be able to make the payment until today.
They didn't answer Credit Protection Depot like usual, it was some other name like Sun River Associates or something like that. I verified that this was indeed the right place to call and they said it was and verified that this was my final payment.
Today, I made my normal (and final!) Moneygram payment. When I called to give them the reference number I got a recording that said: (paraphrased) "Thank you for calling about your account. At this time the company has decided to close all accounts. No further action is required on your part. Once again management has decided to close all accounts. No further action is required. Thanbk you for your business"
Seems like maybe another one has bit the dust here? What I don't know is if they will claim my final $138 payment or whether I'll be able to get it back from Moneygram. Time will tell.
This was my final payment on my last illegal loan.. YAY!
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.
