Legal Network of America New Vista Credit Solutions What A Big Ripoff! Hayward, California
So, I began making my payments to Legal Network of America. In 5 months I paid a total of $4,356.91 to them, and made no payments to Chase. In the sixth month, I got a call from a debt collector advising me that Chase would not negotiate with any debt collection company! I am sure that New Vista and Legal Network knew this up front, but never advised me at all. I called them and told them I wanted to cancel their services, and in the end after all their hidden costs, and penalties, I got a refund of $1500 back! They took $2850+ of my money, and I got royally ripped off. All they did was get money from my bank account every month on automatic withdrawl! What did they do to earn the $2850+? Nothing.
In the end, I negotiated with the debt collection agent and got 50% off anyway...thanks to my own negotiation skills. And here's the final kicker....at the end of the year, Chase sent me a W-2 form for the amount they wrote off! I ended up paying $10,000 taxes on the $25,000 they wrote off! A lesson to be learned for any of us gullible persons out there. Take heed!
