Hi - I'm looking for some advice. This is my last PDL (from 11). I defaulted in May, sent the usual letters. The total deposit into my bank account was $450.00. The one finance fee I paid was $135.00 leaving a balance of $315.00. I have sent repeated emails telling them I would pay the principle, but to please send me a mailing address and a copy of my loan paperwork since I cannot find it. They have not sent those. They are still looking for a payment of $720.00 or two payments of $360.00. Any ideas how I should handle them. I live in Ct. and these loans are prohibited.
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.
