Bankruptcy attorney Dan Nunley in Oklahoma gets the credit for breaking this story.
“It seems that a debt settlement company by the name of First American Debt Solutions (FADS) of Deerfield Beach, Florida, is mailing solicitation letters to Chapter 13 bankruptcy debtors across the USA. In the letter, FADS blatantly lies to the debtors by telling them that their Chapter 13 case has been dismissed when it hasn’t. And I’m sure that it won’t surprise you that FADS then encourages the panicking debtors to call none other than FADS itself to discuss how FADS can help the debtors to resolve this terrible situation.
If you’re a Chapter 13 debtor who has received such a letter from First American Debt Solutions, please don’t fall for this trickery. Instead, contact your bankruptcy lawyer or your Chapter 13 trustee and provide them with a copy of the letter.”
