I live in GA, and I have accounts with both PGL and Mobiloans. I have paid at least $400 over the principal amount on each of these loans.
I just emailed both companies telling them that I am revoking their ACH privilege to my account, and I plan to fax the same information to them tomorrow, along with a statement (printed from their websites) showing how much money I have paid to them.
Once I receive a fax transmission confirmation, I am taking both letters to my bank to be placed on file.
Thanks to everyone who has helped me out with their advice on this site. My payments on each loan are not due until the last day of this month, so hopefully I have taken care of this in time.
I hope to get the same results that several of you have gotten.
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.
