Progressive Debt Relief   Consumer Complaint 10 13 2011

Consumer Statement:

I used progressive Debt Relief to consoildate my Payday Loans.They promise to save me half of what i was paying ton my payday loans.

It took them four months to settle the first payday loans. I notice that they were charging me more in fees than i owe on the payday loans.

After the settle the second loans i decide to cancel my service with them. My account still had all most $500.00 left in it which was suppose to be refunded back to me. instead they settle another account which total to $180.00. The charged my account $263.00 for settling this account sending me $8.62 refund.

This company is ripping consumer off who or looking for a soultion in time of needs its bad enough that you made a bad mistake to get caught up in these payday loans, but to hire someone who make promises to save you money, instead they or cheating you whorser than the payday loans lender.i have file a compliant with BBB and trying my best to make sure I get this informat ion out to anyone who is looking for help in this area.

None.

    My debt to one creditor was $720. Progressive settled the debt for $250. Then took $480 out of my escrow account for two separate fees on this one account. So I ended up paying more than what I owed. And lets not forget the monthly Escrow fee you are charged for them holding your money and getting interest off of it.

    This company is a fraud. Haven’t settled one of my accounts, pulled out $810, which thankfully is being refunded to me. I could have paid off 3 of my loans with that amount and they haven’t even settled one. Contact your creditors…they will work with you, stop interest charges. Progressive Debt Relief is no relief, just an awful headache to deal with.

  • your an idiot

    You will pay more than your loans…you are paying for a service and no one works for free. You still however save money monthly vs paying tht only foes to thevpayday loan pockeyspayment that doe

    I inquired about this companies service and was told that I needed to pay them $256.90 for a DVD and a welcome package (They also told me that they had no record of my payment until I provided the bank statement showing their company debiting my account), which like most if not all here had to do. The DVD and welcome package never arrived. I have opened a claim against this company with BBB and also have found other resources that are checking into this companies business practices. They are taking peoples money on a large scale and their not even working from the office which is listed on their website. That is a postal box (What scammers use to not have a physical address attached to their services).The internet is so influential now that enough complaints and the word being spread about this company will be their demise on swindling people whom really need help!

    I took this agency to help me with payday loans and they could’t reach an agreement with a couple of them I also had to pay for a DVD package that costed me 360.00 freaking dollars before they would even talk to me. Well, I did NOT use their services and they will NOT refund me my 360.00 for the DVD. STAY AWAY FROM THESE SCAMMERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This person who wrote this comment is absolutely full of it. Progressive charges what I think is a fair fee for the service they offer and they got me out of debt for WAY less than what the payday loan companies were charging. If the above person bothered to read the agreement that was signed at the beginning of the program they would have noticed that it says every situation differs and what my counselor stated to me was that a lot of times they can save in the 50% ball park but every lender and situation is different. It is tough to make every person happy in a service related industry, but impossible when dealing with half retarded people.

      I STAND FIRM ON MY COMPLAINT AGAINST PROGRESSIVE DEBT RELIEF.  THIS SITE IS DESIGN TO INFORM INDIVIUAL ABOUT ANY COMPANY, THEY MAY HAVE HAD AN ISSUSE WITH. MY SIUATION IS MINES AND MINES ALONE.  FOR ANY PERSON(S) TO ADDRESS SOMEONE COMPLAINT AGAINST A COMPANY AS FULL OF IT IS REALLY CHILDISH. WHAT PROBLEMS I HAD OR ANYONE HAVE WITH ANY COMPANY IS THERE AND THERE ALONE, BUT TO CALL A PERSON STUPID BECAUSE THEY HAD A PROBLEM WITH A COMPANY IS GOING A LITTLE TOO FAR.

        Curious what the fees are as outlined in the contract you signed? 
        They charged you $263 and debt settled at $180. What was the total debt before settlement? How is the $263 developed?

        I think your spelling is childish. As well as your complaint.
