Last year, I ran into financial difficulties, and reached out to the internet for help. I came across a debt management or consolidation company that offered to help me with all my unsecured debts, as well as payday advance loans. I know knot many if not all legitimate debt companies do not help with these types of loans, so I was thrilled to hear that they could help me with them.
They referred me to a law firm, Jason D. Hass in Arizona, and together they had me sign contracts and agreement to help me battle my creditors and help my credit report.Since I have enrolled I have paid a total of almost $1,600.00 in fees, with no results.
My creditors continued to call me, as they said they would, but didn't slow, rather, they increased. i developed a relationship with one of my creditors and begged them to allow this company to work with them. Willingly, the creditor waited and waited for information from my debt management company. I asked the creditor to keep me informed of what was happening with my deliquent account, so i could track the work of the management company. phone calls, letters and faxes were sent in regards to me tot he management company. all the while, the creditor kept me informed of what was and was not happening. The creditor informed me that the company was virtually impossible to contact, and little to nothing was done on my behalf. So what was I paying my monthly fees for?
a few months later, another creditor served me with court documents to appear in court. I was astonished, but the management company told me that this was normal, and that they were doing all they could to help me. I ended up contacting the company and speaking with the representative who stated that nothing had been done on the account, no contact, letters of hardship that the law firm told me was going to be sent within weeks of enrollment, absolutely nothing had happened since I stopped my payment with them per the management companys advise. I needless to say settled with the creditor for low monthly payments that i could have done on my own, without paying all these rediculous fees for nothing to the management company.
I have tried contacting the company to cancel my account and refund my money that they have been accepting without doing any of the work for.
No one will call me back, no email responces, not telephone return calls, nothing. is there ANYTHING that I can do?!
I would really like to have that money back to help settle the debt that they failed to help me with!
can anyone help me?!
