I received document from Debt Management Division, 1101 Pennsylvania Ave NW 6th Floor, Washington, DC 20004 with a Non Negotiable-Non-Transferable-This is not a check-Actual amount may be less, in the amount of $4,402.24 with a Case Number [X]. it asked me to call 1-877-805-9829. I called this number and talked to a Mike somebody, we taked for awhile and he asked me to get all my debts together and call him at his direct line 1-800-994-1799, Ext 123.
What I am trying to find out, is this true or not. Should I call him? I,m in debt and I need help but I do not want to go about it the wrong way. He wants me to call him on Monday, 22 Nov 2010. So you can see, I need to know if this is true right away.
Is this for real?
This marketing approach has been called a number of things. Mailers from the same address have called it Consumer Debt Hardship Initiative and Government Monitored Debt Relief Program.
There is no government program to eliminate your debt. If they made you believe there is, they lied. It is a marketing gimmick intended to persuade you to signup for debt relief services, often for a huge fee.
