*Author of original report: Guess who just joined the BBB of Southeast Florida?
At the beginning back in December 2003, I set up one account with them and had paid 1 month in advance which I was to receive on completion of the program which was 53 months. When Hurricane Katrina hit was when things started going awry and possibly when Armestong came on board as President as well but not sure. FCCC blamed their problems on the hurricane.
I for one don't believe it takes 3 months to get things in order. Since that time, I stupidly placed 5 other accounts with them thinking that everything was now okay. Payments have been moved closer and closer to the creditors due dates and in some cases, missed them. I reported them twice to the BBB in South Florida.
Recently, I was called by them and said I was being dropped from the program which they did. They told me that they were not returning my first months advance and contractually they did not have to do so. (I checked the contract and they are right legally because it said that if I ceased the program FOR ANY REASON, they did not have to return it. guess they realized they will need it for the pending class action suit, huh?)
You want a good creditable company to handle your DMP affairs, go to Trinity Debt Management in Cincinnati, OH they have helped me tremendously and I can vouch for their good communication and work there.
