Liberty Settlement Group is Taking Money From My Mother. – Kathy

“Dear Damon,

My mother has been paying Liberty Settlement Group for almost 3 yrs. She is 72 and recently admitted to hospital- went to check her mail and phone messages. In the mail she received a letter stating that “once you have completed the initial fee payment period of your program and your entire monthly draft is allocated to your program savings, a monthly maintenance fee of $52.50 will be assessed to maintain your debt settlement”, this is from Debt Talk Liberty Settlement Group of Newport Beach, CA.

She is now receiving phone messages wanting her to settle a debt- one she had given to Liberty Settlement. I became suspiciuos , and it seems rightly so.

Can you help? She has paid $207.14 for 34 months, she thinks her bills will all be paid in full with a last payment in October 2011. I found what paperwork I could, was going to check it on computer, but found at the “summary of account”- Company will provide Client with online access to view their account activity on a daily basis. Company will provide Client with a user name and password after the enrollment period is complete. She does not have, nor know how to use a computer. Please let me know if you can help? Thanks!


Dear Kathy,

    i also have been completely ripped off from liberty. it now appears that they have just vanished off the map. i paid them about $6,000 over the course of 3 years (maybe a bit more actually) to settle 3 debts for me, they settled one, and then disappeared. i have contracts and emails of correspondence, but they took my money and ran so what can i do now? their email address is gone and their numbers don’t work anymore. is there some kind of class action suit that can be filed?

        Sounds like it is time for bankruptcy, which would have most likely prevented all the difficulty you went through.

        Let’s start with the basics.

        I’d suggest you first read How to Get Out of Debt. The Honest and Unvarnished Truth and The Truth About The Success Rates, Failure Rates and Completion Rates of Credit Counseling, Debt Settlement, and Bankruptcy. They will give you a great overview of what we need to deal with to get you moving in the right direction.

        Then use the free How to Get Out of Debt Calculator to review your options.

        After that, come back here and comment about what seems to make the most sense and let’s discuss that.

        Does that sound like a reasonable approach?
