guys do not use them i have paid them over 1500.00 in 2 months and they have yet to pay any of my pld's. they promised me to have me just pay what i borrowed. i was told by the pdl's i had that they have not received anything or got any payments. pld assistance has not called me back. i left them 10 messages already. what can i do to get my money back. do not use them guys they will take your money from you too. they are theifes, beware. now not only do i not have the 1500.00 but i can't pay any off the bills and they keep calling me. pdl has not sent them any paper work either. i am thinking they are a fly by night business who is stealing all our money.




They have not settled any of your loans? I just signed with them as a backup. I am not having any money taken out until the 6/25. I had already started the process on my own. I myself have never had a problem getting in touch with them. But all they have from me right now is $200. When I spoke with them today they told me that if any of my PDLs settle with me prior to my first payment, based on what I have done on my own then they would adjust my payments. So I will wait until the 20th to see what I can take care of. I could most likely do all of it on my own, but I am busy at work and will be on rod for a good part of this month.

Hello Chris,
I too signed up with PDL assistance for 2 days. I immediatly cancelled my contract and got my $200 enrollment fee. Listen you can do it yourself!! PDL Assistance from what I have heard does work, but they do not pay of your PDLs untill you have enough money saved in your set up savings account with Rocky Mount & Trust. How many PDLs do you have?

Many people here have taken care of their pdl's on their own, all it takes is a lot of persistence and knowledge. The people of this community are more than willing to walk you through the process. But you must do what you feel the most comfortable with. Good luck, either way !! :D

I agree with Shazz. I too had considered going with Langhorne but I didn't like the money they would charge me to clear the debts, the length of time it would take to do so and I mostly didn't like the attitude I was getting. It was almost as bad as what I was getting from the PDLs themselves. I did what the good people on this board told me to do and within 3 months I had all 5 of them cleared. Yes, it is time consuming and sometimes nervewracking but in the end it was worth it. I came away paying just what the PDL deposited into my account and in two instances less than what they gave me. One was a considerable amount, $293 and change to be exact. If you are persistant in your endeavors, inform the authorities who can help you and keep you chin up, things will work out. I would suggest that you read the sticky on using ACH processors to stop PDLs and if it applies, use that advise as well. That is what cleared my last two, and within days. Keep us posted.

I also was screwed by PDL Asst. Cancel your acct's with them now over the phone ASAP. I paid $200 into their company which I cannot get back. I settled all of my PDL's & am paying them off myself. I spoke with a supervisor with PDL Asst. to get my acct cancelled. You should have acces to you acct where your $1500 dollars was debited. Call immedialtely & speak with a supervisor. Try to call in the AM when they do not have as many calls. I also am reporting them to the BBB. Good LUCK

Wow. You might want to contact the bank where they set up your savings account Chris, you may be able to withdraw your money. It is worth a shot. I personally spoke with the manager at PDL Assistance and he said you cannot get your enrollment fee or money back put into the trust account after 3 days of enrolling. So Good Luck! The whole thing sounds kind of strange to me. I read the contract over and it DOES state that very same thing on there. So beware before you send them anymore money.

I am beginning to feel that these "groups" are not much better than the "groups" they are trying to stop. Like I have said before, one big happy family applies to these guys. When I spoke with Langhorne I asked them how they can accomplish this when other "consolidation groups" can't. I was flat out told that Langhorne had an attorney with them who previously worked for a PDL and he knew exactly what to do in these circumstances. Hence, the birth of Langhorne. However, when I stated that I had already "paid in full" 3 of my 5 payday loans (but no admittance of that fact on the part of the PDL) I was told that even under those circumstances I would still have to pay the PDL a couple hundred bucks, to make them go away. I asked why and was told that "that is just the way it is". I told him I had to call back (I was not at home when I called) and the wrath of God came on me for "wasting" his time by "thinking" about it. The same damn attitude that the PDLs give out. Question in my mind is this. If you really have the best interest at heart for the client you are representing, why on God's green earth would you enable the PDL by feeding their nasty habit further? I wanted Langhorne to make they go away, not pay them more money. On top of all that they wanted their own fee to do so. I realize they wanted to make money as well, but shouldn't their "fee" cover what they were hired to do? It's like paying a lawyer to represent you in court and then he/she stands their and says "oh yes, your Honor, my client is guility". Just doesn't make sense to me. In the end, I duked it out myself. I came here in February with 5 PDLs. Three months later I am totally PDL free and did so by paying back only $1235 of the $1560 I originally owed. If you can dream it, you can do it. It's time consuming, but oh so rewarding in the end. Keep your chin up.

After think about this all weekend I think I am going to call PDL assistance first thing in the morning to let them go. I can not get my $200 back but they will not get anymore money from me. I change my banking information after I hired them and have not updated it yet, so they can not take money anyway. I now have 8 loans out of the 10 left to deal with. Six I have overpaid. I come here everyday, mostly reading advice from everyone and I have already done so much on my own. I think I can do this, but I am scared.

ll1985 - of the money you paid back on your loans was anythin over the principle? According to the laws of my state and the laws of the states where I have loans
I owe less than $300.

No, I paid back what was deposited into my bank account on 3. One I only paid back $270 on a $300 loan and the other I only paid back $105 and change on a $400 loan. All brought my account to zero and gave me a PIF. AND, can you belive this, one sent me a letter of apology for all my aggravation! What state are you in again? I am assuming that you have overpaid or paid close to the original amount of the debt? Less than $300 is a drop in the bucket! Keep us posted.
