More on Nonprofit Credit Counseling Group United Financial Systems

A tipster (send in your tips here) sent me a link to a recent television report on the nonprofit group United Financial Systems I’ve written about previously .

As of today United Financial Systems has 679 BBB complaints filed against it and has not responded to 351 of those.

Sadly as I predicted in my story “United Financial Systems Looks Set to Implode. Run For The Hills!” the group did indeed implode and many consumers have been harmed as a result.

I had also warned consumers to run in my September 6, 2010 reader question response:

I take missing payments very seriously. It strikes at the very heart of a company trusted to manage your funds, actually being able to do that.

While I generally urge people to attempt to work out these types of issues with their debt relief company directly first, in this case with the large numbers of sudden complaints against the company and the number of missing payments I would suggest you switch companies immediately.

  • yep, been working on that πŸ™‚ spoke w/ AG of FL back in early Dec. im sure they didnt d anything then, as I was probably one of the 1st complaints. They informed me they watch for patterns of possible fraud, etc before stepping in. It looks like UFS got to that point!!
    Also, the atom bomb explosion on the link above….is that reference to UFS exploding or my current emotional status about this ordeal πŸ™‚
    Will keep you updated.
    Thanks again! I came across this blog 2 months ago & kept checking it periodically & it just may come across as one of the few saviours I had!! πŸ™‚

  • no wonder why they went AWOL the last few weeks!!! I sent them another nasty email & maybe if i officially file complaints (again…6 months later), I will get my $1100, plus the remaining balance of $1800 paid off & letters sent to my creditors publicly apologizing for any delays. Thanks for all your help to the 1000s of affected!!!
