I Can’t Quit the Debt Program I’m in That I Think is a Scam


Dear Steve,

I am at the moment involved with Rockwell. I cannot financially afford to just quit the program and lose the money I have paid them and still settle my debt.

Therefore I am sticking it out as long as I can (also buying time to correlate getting out in a better manner). I also need to continue in order to attempt through the AG of MN (Ellison) to pursue a permanent solution to the elimination of this company.

Everyone I have seen simply screams fraud and quits. That does not solve the base problem–their existence. Many people will need help with debt after COVID-19. I do not want to see anyone have to go through what I am and this type of thing could cause them to become homeless. It leads people to commit suicide!!!

If I can continue to fight with them to pay my debt and gather evidence at the same time I can also work on shutting them down permanently.

Suing as the Ice Law firms to be is at best a band-aid and help to only a few. It is monetary only.

I would like to see the actual case filed by Ice Legal. The link and/or access to it do not work.

Strategic has also become employee-owned. Does that mean that any and all employees can be prosecuted as owners?




Dear Pamela,

Here is the current listing of cases in federal court that involved Ice Legal.

Ice Legal Federal Court Cases

Here is a document from the most recent case they became involved with as special counsel to the Bankruptcy Trustee.

In that case, Ice Legal was brought in by the Bankruptcy Trustee to go after The Anchor Law Firm.

I would hate to assume what “Strategic” company you are exactly referring to but my answer would be the same regardless. You ask a good question that requires a legal answer. I am not an attorney.

Clearly, the only logical answer I can give you is to suggest you talk to someone at Ice Legal and discuss your situation and concerns. They give this contact information.

If you feel you are being taken advantage of, you don’t need to put yourself in a deeper hole to stick it out. Do whatever is best for you. You should not feel like you have to take one for the team.

Please update me in the comments below about what you decide to do.


You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.

    • No don’t. I work there. It is debt settlement. They take all fee’s up front which is against ftc regulations. You will pay more into the program than what you owe in debt. Save yourself the money and settle your debt on your own and not pay 85% In fee’s

    • Canceled there services back in OCT, for reasons of buying a new home, I was told no problem I was within the 90 day window and that I would get a refund well not only did I NOT get a refund they took even more money out of my account, and when confronted about it they told me they sent the request to the wrong people. I seen there reviews on other sites and 1 out of 5 stars and many complaints on many sites. So because of these issues I am looking into a class action suite against North Star. And here is a secret, when they say this may be recorded for quality assurance YOU can also record them, because they already said this conversation my be recorded, and if and when it get to court they cannot use the argument that they were not informed that they were being recorded. And the only way they got 5 out of 5 stars here is well ,,, it is on there site, AND only a few people left a review, which tells me and I would hope most people that it could be someone within the NorthStar Company.
      Off to the next review pages…
