I was also duped by Bruce Abernathy. I paid into his scam for 3 years and none of my accounts has been settled. I call them and they don’t call back or they tell me that the longer I wait, the better the deal they can make. They now call themselves, “Financial Assistance Group, Inc”. I sent in a claim to the Kentucky Bar Association but don’t know if I’ll be able to get any of my money back.
How do I go about paying back this debt? Should I try to negotiate with the credit card companies or just settle however they suggest?
