Are people satisfied with Federal Debt Relief Program?

There are people who are satisfied with this program, claiming that the company does deliver what they promise, and are quite pleased with the way the company has handled their cases.


One customer says that he was in their relief program for 6 months and was satisfied with the service. The company kept him informed about his case and whenever he had any problems, he contacted the client care department and the representatives helped him.

Though a few customers have shared positive feedback about the company, there are many who have complaints against them. Some of the common complaints against Federal Debt Relief System are:

  • Lack of communication: Some of those who enrolled in a program claim that the company did not provide them with any information about their cases. The company did not send them any information to keep them updated on the progress of their case.

    One customer alleges that when he inquired about his accounts and the company's dealings with his creditors, they stopped returning his calls. The customer then received a collections summons for the debt and had to appear in court. Dissatisfied with the service, he quit the program and started negotiating with his creditors on his own.
  • Failure to stop creditors: Many customers are angry that the Federal Debt Program failed to stop creditor harassment. One customer said he was constantly harassed by creditors even though he paid the company well over $7k. Some consumers said they got sued by creditors and the company could do nothing to protect them. Find out more...
  • False claims: Some of the customers allege that Federal Debt Relief Services made false claims to customers. When they ask the company to provide them with some information in support of their claims, they fail to prove any.

    One customer says the company claims to work with 112 law firms to relieve the customers from debts. But when he wanted some information about those law firms, the company representative started giving excuses and failed to provide any information whatsoever. He suspects that the company makes false claims about working with reputable law firms to relieve customers from their financial burdens. Find out more

Hi Everyone,
I found this forum while doing an exhaustive search for information on the FDRS. Other than their own ads and articles, I can't find much of anything about them. I tried to search the forums for previous posts about them, but found nothing.
What is the Federal Debt Relief Program? Have any of you guys ever dealt with FDRS or know anything about them?


Thanks!
Hawk




Hi and welcome to the forums. I am not familiar with the FDRS However, I am sure someone will come along that has heard of it. In the meantime, browse around. You will find lots of useful information on this site!

After following up and researching about FDRS, turned up some very interesting results.

All me to to preface, that I believe people are allowed there own beliefs and personal opinions, but FDRS is a source of proclaimed patriotism but in reality a world hating conspiracy web site. There is plenty of front information of consolidating your debts, but if you go to their resources page, and start to read the articles, you will find a wealth of misguided and fearful articles spouting secret societies, new world order, and a chance to save 33% on debt collection.

Personally I don't think this is an agency you should rick your money with. There are many more companies out there that provide support in debt relief without spreading the word of fear and hatred.

I agree with Scott, forget about FDRS. Stick with someone who is a member of the Better Business Bureau. In fact, you can sign up here for assistance.

Wow, they almost sound like that one company that people have posted about here which sounds like a huge scam--is it called the Nouveau Society? Sounds very strange and not something to get involved with...

Thanks everyone for your input about this Fdrs group. My gut was going crazy with red flags, and not finding anything out there about them other than their own propaganda made me really nervous.

I really appreciate you guys!

I spoke with them but it made me very skeptical. I asked to see what they do on paper but they wouldnt send me anything. It just seems too good to be true. They told me they could just wipe out my debt in 18 months with payments to them each month that totaled about $7000 for the elimination of about $22,000 of credit card debt. The payments to them were to pay the attorneys to dispute my accounts. I looked up the Better Buisness Bureau and the Arkansas branch has no complaints, but the there are a few complaints federal debt relief program (Hollywood, CA branch) has against it. It was rated by the BBB as an F grade. What I am afraid of is getting sued by the creditors and FDRS taking my money. There is nothing they offer to protect you in case what they say does not happen.

Hi

Though I do not know anything about Federal Debt Relief Services. But what I know is that most of these companies advertise as "we will eliminate your debts completely" or "we will work with your creditors and sort out a feasible monthly payment" but the truth is these stuffs are simply hoaxes to steal your hard earned money. So beware of them.

Take care :)

I actually worked with Fed Debt Rel System. After a few weeks,and a little due-diligence I got the #$@% outta there. Very anti-american views, and constantly spoke of the phrase 'R-word'(Revolution) in training and client contact. Several previous addresses in and out of state, even the fax cover page with a declaration stating non-acknowledgment current Constitutional amendments. After contacting several of the largest attorneys in the US on the company and industry as well, I was told that several companies of this type over the last 5-8 years have popped up. At first, the legal strategy worked, but shortly afterwards, the banks quickly realized what was going on, and realizing the potential consequences of what would happen if a significant number of unsecured credit borrowers caught on, they quickly corrected the problem by having all customers acknowledge in writing/with signatures, that their credit card debt was in fact owed by them to the banks and all proceding credit card applications/contracts have a general cavaet in place ackwoledging these unsecured form of debt as real debt that's owed. With these acknowledgments in place, the credit card companies are now in a position enforce the unsecured debt, regardless of where the money came from. Now keep in mind that this is information obtained from competitors of FDRS, but the general gist was reiterated by more than I debt attorney firm and it is quite reasonable. I would suggest you look over your initial application and/or contract, find the statements of you acknowledgment of debt and promise to pay principals and interests for yourself. Personally, I wouldn't touch em with a 10 foot pole. Good Luck
