I am owed $16,200 by Clear Your Debt, LLC in Austin, TX.  I was fired for not signing a contract that Jordan Lane, Manager, would not allow me to read.  Thankfully I was warned by an employee that this contract they were drafting would force me to forfeit all of my commissions earned if I signed it.  I resigned afterwards and later the owner of the company met with me and offered a bonus & my pay if I stayed.  I made a decision to stay because I wanted my pay, having 4 children and it being Christmas time it was the responsible thing to do.  2 weeks later, when I went to pick up my promised pay, Jordan Lane handed me the contract I had heard about.  I had one of my children with me at the time & was on my way to pick up & drop off my boys for a weekend scouting campout when I explained to Jordan that I'd read the contract & bring it back.  He forced me, under duress, to had him the pay back & told me I couldn't take the contract with me.  I gave him my pay & the contract and said I'd be back in 30 minutes.  10 minutes later I received a voice message from Jordan terminating me.  When I called him back to find out why I was being fired, he said for non-compliance of company policy.  I told him I did not have a chance to read the contract & couldn't sign something without reading it first & he told me to go find another job. I asked about picking up my pay & he said, "We don't feel we owe you any money."  I asked what he meant by that & he repeated himself.  I could not reach the owner after several atttempts & was left jobless & ripped off by $16,200 during the Holidays with 4 children.  I've since tried to recover my earnings with the help of an attorney, however the company denied owing me any money.  Litigation would be in upwards of several thousand dollars and I cannot afford justice at this time.  My objective in filing a report against this company is to warn other possible future victims of their scams & fraudulent behaviors.  Clear Your Debt was on Fox 7 News Austin for ripping people off (myfoxaustin.com, (2008), Last Edited: Monday, 14 Jan 2008, 10:01 PM CST, Created: Monday, 14 Jan 2008, 8:50 PM CST) 
Although in my contract I am entitled to Attorney's fees if I win, I cannot afford to retain an attorney and the attorneys I've spoke with have advised me that Clear Your Debt, LLC would be difficult to collect from based on the fact that they are hiding and protecting their assets under other business names.

Laughable

AUTHOR: Scammed - (U.S.A.)

It is laughable that Clear Your Debt and its officials consistently check ripoffreport.com for new claims against them so they can attempt a rebuttal in hopes to cover their thieving tracks.  My statement was  posted Nov 25th and a rebuttal posted a just days following.  That speaks volumes, as does the endless complaints against them.  I, in fact, did contact the company several times for resolve.  I hired an attorney to send demand letters,  and when I decided I was 'done with these clowns' and wanted to go to court, my attorney said it will be a very costly process and I would obtain a Judgment against them because I had a solid case and all contracts including several voice recorded conversations between the owner, Darren Scott, and manager Jordan Lane.  However, in the words of my attorney, "you will end up with a judgement against Clear Your Debt, LLC but it will be nothing more than an expensive piece of paper, they will never pay."  The money spent on travel back to Texas, filing fees, attorney fees, etc, and in the end obtain a judgement which Clear Your Debt would never pay is hardly worth the aggravation.   The company stole from me which is bad enough, loosing thousands of more dollars just to show them they are legally wrong is not worth it, they know they are wrong.  A piece of paper is not going to compel them to pay.  Enough said. 

One last thought:  The paper trail Clear Your Debt has left behind marks their thieving ways, cruel intention, refusal to change, and worse, their lies to try and mask the truth.  There are honest companies out there in this industry providing  people in miserable financial circumstances an opportunity to recover financially from set backs.   Clear Your Debt is not one of them.

My name is Steve Speed and as the Director of Compliance for the companies mentioned in this thread I will just say that we take great pride in negotiating and settling millions of dollars of debt on behalf of our clients each month. We have thousands of clients and though we attempt to service them all without undue conflict, sometimes that is not possible or even a realistic expectation. Occasionally our clients chafe under creditor harassment, which may include litigation or threats of litigation. Sometimes they may lose their jobs or their patience.



 



When our clients have concerns our staff seeks to resolve them quickly and to the clients satisfaction. Unfortunately most of the issues raised on this thread are not from actual clients. Many of these complaints have been fabricated by unscrupulous competitors or collectors looking to disparage us.



 



Unfortunately, some former employees who may have been disgruntled with their commission plans have also chosen to post negative comments. While we wish that these individuals would address their issues in an appropriate forum that could allow for resolution of their grievance, we do understand that the internet and message boards like this one offer a place for such misunderstandings to be aired. In the past we have attempted to react to such postings with an immediate response.



 



In the future, we would request that anyone who may have a concern that needs to be addressed contact me directly at 512-539-4713. This is my direct line and I answer it myself. I look forward to assisting you with any issues you may have.
