He has taken $4Kfrom my account and nothing has been settled. The 4K was his settlement fee. He has not paid the CC and it appears that the settlement letter is a fraud.
I am at my wits end here. I never thought someone would steal money from me like this--I feel so stupid and taken advantage of.
Of course, I want to give him the benefit of the doubt and say that perhaps his site is undergoing maintenance or something, but he removed our ability to PM each other at one point and then the forum closed shortly after. I should have known. If he cared at all he could easily mass email all of his clients and let them know what is going on.
His clients need to all get together and start a forum of our own so that we can stay in the loop, keep each other informed, and try to recover the money that he stole from us.
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.
