Can a company that is a cso..threaten you with going to jail, having the d.a. issue a warrant for your arrest? Or is this a civil matter where they have to sue you in a court of law? I have been trying to find more info. For the consumer on this subject. But getting dead ends! Any suggestions or answers???
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.
