I am currently in a program to settle some of my debts.  I placed 3 accounts all pertaining to the same bank.  My 2 accounts are fine & accounted for; my wife's account was turned over to this much of Idiots.  I receive a phone call late in the day regarding this account.  The amount due (over 10K) is requested IMMEDIATELY -- or else!!!  I explained to the guy that I spoke with about the settlement program (which is backed by the US Government) I am enrolled in.  He proceeded to tell me that his client doesn't settle & that the programs like I am in are illegal, blah - blah...

After telling me that his client didn't settle with consumers, his very next sentence offered me a settlement of 6.9K.  Now who's right?  After being on the phone with this clown for 45 minutes, I reluctantly initially accepted his offer of a payment plan that both he and myself know that I couldn't afford -- 1732 dolars per month for 4 months.  After I hung up, I called my settlement company & faxed over a letter that I faxed to this outfit stating that I was opting out of the arrangements that I verbally set up.  Shortly thereafter, to protect my interests, I changed bank account numbers so he cannot gain money thru EFT's between him and my bank. 

These people are strong arm real-life Boss Hogg's (they are in GA)that need to be shut down permanently!!!

Steve is right

AUTHOR: Steph - (USA)

I agree with Steve you never give your bank account imformation to any 3rd party collection agency. You should also go to another bank to be on the safe side.


You also might wanto to change your # and have it unlisted but also send them a stop contact letter certified

#3 Consumer Suggestion

Hannah and Thugs

AUTHOR: Ben - (United States of America)

Don't EVEN talk to Hanna without a lawyer. Hanna is the most corrupt of all the debt collectors. They will put false evidence in your file, talk to the Judge ex-parte or anything to win. The State of Georgia will not even enforce the law against them. The Supreme Court of Georgia as much as said Hanna is Above the Law in this State. The State Bar ignores complaints about Hanna's illegal tactics, the Attorney General refers people to the FTC to avoid doing his job and the people will continue to suffer Hanna's injustice under color of Law. It is obvious that Hanna owns Georgia and has them in his pocket. One should'nt be suprised since his clients are Banks and they have the money and political power. Thats what you get in a GOP State, no accountability. Minnesota has an Attorney General who does her job against the likes of Hanna and his ilk.

More advice in dealing with the Hanna thugs

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

First let me tell you that I have engaged in battle with this bunch of thugs and misfits, and beat them badly.

Second, and most important is that you NEVER give ANY "third party" debt collector your banking or employment information. Stay off the phone. NEVER speak to any third party debt collector on the phone. Deal with them via written communication only.

Now, CLOSE that bank account NOW and open one at a DIFFERENT bank. Just changing account numbers WILL NOT stop them from getting your money. The EFT agreement you made can be used against any account you have at that bank, not just the one you used. I have actually seen this. Many banks go by account name, not just account number, and a shady bottomfeeder like Hanna knows how to make this happen. GET YOUR MONEY OUT OF THAT BANK NOW!!!!

Be sure to file a Bar Association complaint against Hanna. Just pick any ethical violation, as there are usually many offenses in every contact with them. This is very important. Enough Bar Association complaints and we can get this fool dis-barred.

Be sure you send the notice to rescind that agreement in writing and via certified mail, return reciept requested. Put the certified# on the letter itself, and keep a copy for your records. This is very important.

Then, by the same means, send a CEASE COMMUNICATIONS request to them under the provisions of the FDCPA, and also inform them that you don't deal with third party debt collectors.

Notify the original creditor right away and set up a payment plan with them. Right now it is easy to set up hardship payment plans with creditors at a small interest rate, and no fees. I did one at 4.25% for 36 months. Down from 21.99% with fees. My payment was cut by 70%.

Good luck!
