I received a call from Legal Helpers Debt Resolution, LLC.on February 2011 asking if I needed a debt relief plan. I was told that if I were sued I would have a lawyer in court with me and they would settle my debt for 65%. I was sued by Discover and I now have a judgement against me. LHDR also called me this week and said they could only settle my debt for 80% of my debt instead of the promised 65%. I have given them $8100 and they have kept $5000 for fees and retained $3100 for my creditors. I was promised to be debt free within 38 months. At the rate I was going it would have been 5 years to being debt free and paying $50,000 to pay-off $20,000 of debt. I have since left this plan, I am trying to get my $3100 from Global Client Solutions, and find an attorney to sue for misrepresentation of their original claims.
Consumer Action Taken:
I have wriiten the BBC in Chicago, stopped paying LHDR, contacted the Texas Attorney General. I am writing LHDR explaining I want a refund of all my money or I will sue them for 3 times the amount they took from me.
