Hi Kae,

Welcome to the community.

This company you mentioned doesn't look good. I see you have made the same request on Yahoo answers about 6 months ago, but no takers.

Odd, that.

Ok, I sent them an email inquring about collection letters from CC companies..because they did not make a quick effort to help me and also from doing some research from internet especially from this website..they seemed to have all trusting sources on their site..such as they have BBB internet security logo but then they are not on BBB.???..making me wondering....so, I wrote a letter Via email to them after all the quietness and I got respond that there were so many activities going on my account and they wanted me to call them back regarding this matters,,,,then I started to speak with collection departments not the collection agencies... myself and tried to explain why I was being so late on my payments, I hornestly told them the truth about my problems and they made an offer to me from my debt aprox $6000 to aprox $3000 in 3 months installment plan...So, I 'll be free from this CC but there are still other CC Co. that they have offered me also..
but after all that, this debt relief company had tried to negotiate with my other CC co. but it;s too late now..I now realized that I could do it myself and save that money I would have to pay them monthly for my debt instead.
Sorry if I confused u...because of my language barrier.

Hi,

No confusion at all. And I totally agree, you can do it yourself. It's your debt, you have to face the ramifications, so it is best that you empower yourself. It's very rewarding knowing that YOU did it, and on top of that, you will learn much in the bargain.

Congratulations, keep in touch! You are among friends and we will assist you any way we can.

Sub: #8 Sample of what they do...
Thu, 03/05/2009 - 13:08

1. They make you stop any payments to the credit cards and put the would be payment money in a separate account.

2. The bank will do what they do if you stop paying them, Bad Reports, Calls, Letters and finally Collections. You still don't pay them.

3. The bank will writ the bad debt off or file for the loss with their insurance and get some money from them.

4. The bank will sell the bad debt to a debt collector for pennies on the dollar. ($15k will be sold at about $6k).

5. The debt collector with then will start asking you for the money, however they will settle for close to the "pennies to the dollar" purchase amount; which you pay from the money you have been putting in the separate account.

6. The bank will be asked to provide in writing to the credit reporting agencies that the debt has been paid.

7. You will have to start rebuilding your credit from that state!

8. This service will come at a cost, 12% of your total debt ($1800). Also there are monthly maintenance fees of about $50 for the duration of about 24 to 36 months for which they will provide guidance and negotiators to talk to the banks and the debt collectors.

9. The important condition is that this debt must BE an "unsecured loan" like the credit card and NOT the "home equity loan".

Sub: #9 Hi Kae,boy I hope you got out of that company doesn't sound good

Hi Kae,boy I hope you got out of that company doesn't sound good and an F rating bad news right there.My husband and I are in a lot of cc debt and decided to do it on our own since the settlement companies take so much in fees.We just started being late and got our first call already from one of the creditors and they put an offer to settle for 50% of the balance in 3 pymts I put in a counteroffer to put pymts over 5 months still waiting to here.But the point is you can try it yourself..at least your money is going toward your settlement and not high fees.I don't know how this will go and may need to try a settlement company but need to try it on our own first and you are right this site is great and the people here are wonderful.

:D I really am enjoying this site and these forums. So many people who have had problems and have investigated options and now are telling and helping other people. This site is amazing!!!

I am a senior citizen and have quite a bit of credit card debt and it is almost impossible to pay even the minimums without taking money out of my IRA each month. But I think bankruptcy is still the best option for me. I really do not care about a great credit scrore anymore at this age!!!

But you guys are awesome!!!!
