A debt collector from Phenix city was calling my mother every other day. My mother is 85 years old. Moreover, she lives alone. She was simply getting irritated with the calls. She told the debt collectors to not call her again in future. The debt collectors didn't call her for a month. However, they have started calling her yet again. My mother is totally frustrated. What can she do now? She is losing her sleep.

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.
