Received a phone call to help to reduce interest on credit cards. I normally do not talk with such individuals, but the idea of cutting credit card interest sounded like a good way to go.
They would guarantee me at least a $1500 savings or there would be no charge. They had all the right answers to my questions.
There was a $395 fee up front (this should have been a red flag for me). After receiving the paperwork, which I was to carefully review, sign and return to them. The paperwork was to show the amt. of interest that I would save on each card.
If they could show a savings of $1500 or more they would than charge another $395. If not, I would get my original $395 back. It all happened so fast, I talked with 3 individuals that day.
First lady, didn’t write her name down; Edward Titus, floor suporvisor; Connie, an older sounding lady, that reviewed all the inf. that they had told me; Ashley, called me a day later, as part of the customer care department.
They were to post the first $395 to my account that day, the second $395 was not to be posted until the paperwork was completed and the reduced interest rates were settled. Both $395 charges appeared on my Discover account on Sept. 1, 2011. I have tried to reach them at all three Phone # 888-748-5760; 727-608-2700; 888-748-4760. The first two # do not exist, the third # (4760) is a realitor in Va.
