Get Out of Debt Guy

My Debt Settlement Company Has Done Little for Me

Posted August 8, 2013

WRAL Reader Question

I paid debt settlement company to settle four debts 4.6 year ago. They settled one and have done nothing about the others. I also pay twenty nine dollars per month for credit restore fee.

How can i get my money back and get them to stop drafting my bank account.

Any help you could give would be great.

Dear Bruce,

It sounds to me as if you've been entirely scammed. 

The good news is I have a guide that sounds like it will be a big help to begin this process of working this out and going for a refund.

See How to Try to Get a Refund From a Debt Relief Company and that should give you everything you need to know to get going on the refund process.
