i have worked with able debt settlement, based out of irving, tx for the last 2 years. they have helped me settle 2 out of 6 accounts. now that i have paid all their ‘service fees’ i cannot seem to get a hold of them – no response to phone calls or emails.
i just filed a complaint with bbb. how do i go about pursuing a partial refund since they are in breach of the contract of helping me settle other accounts listed. how would i go about trying to settle with other companies that i still owe – do i contact the original company, or whoever bought the debt? i live in the state of PA- what is the statute of limitations here regarding debt? thanks.
Able Debt Settlement previously filed a chapter 11 bankruptcy on February 1, 2011. As an unsecured creditor you should have been notified of the filing.
According to current court documents the bankruptcy is ongoing. Kind of ironic that the debt settlement company filed for bankruptcy when they probably talked you out of bankruptcy when you signed up for their service.

It would probably be a good idea to contact them for information on who is supposed to be servicing your account at this point.
If you are stilling being hounded by your creditors, you can locate a performance based debt settlement company that would not charge you an advance fee or click here to find a local bankruptcy attorney.
