I was contacted by Lee Thomas of Pure Debt Solutions regarding student loan debt forgiveness.
Generally I tell these solicitors I am not interested & take me off their ‘list’. Being recently unemployed, I listened to what he had to say. By then he had gotten personal information from me.
For 3 pmts of $233, I would be relieved from this debt go 20 years! What happens next?? He said it would be the same, showing my student loan payments would show current on my credit report.
Unfortunately, I fell for it…after hanging up, I looked into Pure Debt Solutions (as he suggested). My heart sunk! The reviews told me all I needed to know. I called Mr Thomas back (actually got thru!) I told him to cancel this plan because I did not feel good about it. He said ok & he would have customer service take care if it. Guess what? It didn’t happen!
I contacted my credit card company who said it was best to deal with the merchant. I attempted many times to call Lee Thomas – I was cut off every time.
Consumer Action Taken:
I called & requested cancellation, no problem. Next thing, $233 was billed to my credit card! Now I have tried to reach Pure Debt Solutions to no avail! Next, I contacted my credit card company & was told it was best to contact the company that put the charge to.
