My husband and wanted to get out from under credit card debt. I saw on line where Legal Helpers Debt Resolution, LLC was advertising a solution. I talked to my husband about it, and gave them a call. Everything seemed legit. We called and talked to Sean O’Connel for about 2 hours on April 25, 2011 about our debt and signed up for help. Now, we are being told the attorneys went bankrupt and no one seems to know who has taken money out of our account to pay bills nor are the bills being paid. Money was taken from my account in October but my bills were not paid. Now we are almost in debt over our heads.
Consumer Action Taken:
Lots of phone calls to Legal Helpers Debt Resolution company. Several calls to Melissa Acevedo, Customer Service Supervisor, Consumer & Business Debt Counseling. I talked to Ray who is the Vice President of the place Melissa works at. No one seems to know who I should contact.
The Myvesta Foundation has sent a letter to the company at the address above and asked them to publicly respond to this complaint.
