Credit Advocates Law Firm took around $2,000.00 from my checking account over a period of 6 months, and were supposed to be helping me, but they have taken all the money in “fees” to themselves and never sent even one notice nor contacted any of the companies that I owed money to , that were listed to be paid off in their program.
Consumer Action Taken:
Once I realized what was happening I called and confronted them about this and told them to stop taking any more of my money. I asked for half of my money back, not all ( because of my own stupidity in trusting them). They said no. I asked for 25% back and am still waiting to hear back, which I doubt will happen. I have searched legal representation and the lawyer said that since I have proof they never contacted any of my debt holders, they should refund me all of my money. If not, he would, for $250.00 be able to get my money back, but he also said these type of companies will shut down and you can’t find them to sue them.
