I’ve Given Good Shepherd Debt My Money But It’s Hard to Work With Them. – Susan

“Dear Steve,

I have given these people $200 a month since January of 2010. They have resolved one of my seven debtors about a month ago but it was one of the smaller accounts. I am very scared now and wonder if I should get my money back while I can? Communications is tough as it takes several days to get a responce on email and email is the way they prefer to communicate. The name was changed form Good Shepherd to the other com[any almost immediately after I signed the agreement. They have strongly suggested I do not respond to phoen calls from debtors and so far I have not been taken to court. I dont know what to do., I am unemployed, my husband is 78 and no longer allowed to work per his doctors instructions and I am barely holding onto my home.

Please advise.

Susan”

Dear Susan,

It appears the GoodShepherdDebt.org domain doesn’t even work now.

I’ve written about this “Christian” debt relief company before and this article has additional contact information in it.

In order to get your money back I’d suggest you follow my guide, How to Get Out of a Debt Relief Program and Get a Big Refund.

Given your age and your financial condition with just barely being able to hold on to the house, I don’t think any sort of payment plan is right for you.

The truth is you probably need to think about bankruptcy. At 78 the number of years and money available for debt is limited. You need a solution that you can put in place right now.

You can click here to find a local bankruptcy attorney and if you’d like a second opinion about your situation or a personal consultation by another debt coach, please feel free to contact Damon Day.

Please update me on your progress by posting updates here in the comments section of your question. I’m very interested in how this works out for you.
