Legal Helpers Debt Resolution   Consumer Complaint   12 2 2011

Consumer Statement:

My husband and wanted to get out from under credit card debt. I saw on line where Legal Helpers Debt Resolution, LLC was advertising a solution. I talked to my husband about it, and gave them a call. Everything seemed legit. We called and talked to Sean O’Connel for about 2 hours on April 25, 2011 about our debt and signed up for help. Now, we are being told the attorneys went bankrupt and no one seems to know who has taken money out of our account to pay bills nor are the bills being paid. Money was taken from my account in October but my bills were not paid. Now we are almost in debt over our heads.

Consumer Action Taken:

Lots of phone calls to Legal Helpers Debt Resolution company. Several calls to Melissa Acevedo, Customer Service Supervisor, Consumer & Business Debt Counseling. I talked to Ray who is the Vice President of the place Melissa works at. No one seems to know who I should contact.

Note:

The Myvesta Foundation has sent a letter to the company at the address above and asked them to publicly respond to this complaint.

    I HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH LHDR FOR OVER A 16 MONTHJS NOW AND RECENTLY MY ALL MY BANK ACCOUNTS GOT RESTRAINED BY A CREDIT CARD CO THAT THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO DEAL WITH, AND WHICH WAS PART OF THE DEBT SETTLEMENT CONTRACT I HAD WITH THEM. THE REP I SPOKE WITH HAVE A DONT CARE ATTITUDE AND TELL ME TO GO TO COURT TO UNFREEZE MY ACCOUNT AND THEY CANT HELP. WHY AM I PAYING THESE PEOPLE AND HAVE TO GO TO COURT AT THE SAME TIME. NEVER HAVE ONCE LHDR WARNED ME THAT MY ACCOUNTS COULD HAVE BEEN FROZEN. ALL MY BILL PAYMENTS EVEN I PAY FOR GAS THROUGH THESE ACCOUNTS, WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO???

      Eddie, I don’t know when this happened to you, but like yourself, I was told the same thing and after about 7 mths of paying over $1000.00 per mth out of my account, I realized I was in big trouble, I cancelled with them after they basically stole over $5000.00 from me and with the monies they did send back I had to get a real lawyer and file Chapter 13 I had no other options in front of me.. This  all happpened in 2011. They basically reeled me in and I trusted the women Kathy Argenta I really was led to believe it they were legit…. Lesson so badly learned. I could have stopped paying on the cards like I was told to do, saved that money and in around the 8th mth had money to pay one of the smaller debts off and money for a lawyer…. a real lawyer……
