I recently sent a letter to Great Plains advising them they are illegal etc. (form letter posted on the website). Today i happened to answer the phone at my place of employment and Verifax was calling to supposedly update information. Once I questioned them about why they were doing this, they told me they were trying to verify info about me. I asked why and said its normal they do it for banks etc. What should i do now?
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.
