Debt Relief USA Do not use Debt Relief agencies unless they are affiliated with the government or none profit Addison Texas
*Consumer Comment: A little internet research could have avoided this
I lost my $60,000 a year job and could no longer continue the payments to Debt Relief USA. After repeated phone calls to stop my automatic payment withdraws and to get a refund of my money, they reluctantly refunded $745.00 and kept over $3100.00 claiming it as their 10% fee for doing business with me. They also told me I could restart the program within 6 months.
They probably did nothing wrong because I signed a contract with them but I was not aware that I was paying their 10% commission upfront. I basically paid them to do absolutely nothing for me except to collect my money. I never in my entire have felt so ripped-off and scammed.
The morel of the story is: Do not use these debt relief agencies without consulting a lawyer. I could have filed a chapter 13 for a $1000 and resolved my debt for pennies on the dollar. My input is to make you aware of the many other options available to you to resolve your debt. Seek a Debt Relief Agency affiliated with the government.
