I was totally scammed and basically robbed and lied to by Credit Advocates Group aka Fast Track Debt relief. This company promised to have me debt free within 5 years. For the past 3 years they took over 400 dollars a month and I would get an occasional phone call about an update but never able to reach anyone when I called back. When I did reach someone they were rude and unprofessional. Going into my 4th year, I now have 2 settled accounts that totalled maybe 2200 dollars total. If you do the math, I have paid around 18,000 dollars to this company. OH and let me add, I have to judgements against me and when I called them about this, I was told that they cannot do anything about it and I would have to make arrangements with the lawyers who filed the judgements and pay them seperately and continue paying credit advocates as well. Then they emailed me on another occasion to say they were settling an account. I told them NOT to because I wa s forced to file bankruptcy, but they went ahead and settled with them anyway. This company is FRAUDULENT, LIARS and give hope to vulnerable people trying to do whats right to protect their credit. SHAME ON THEM. I was forced into bankruptcy because this company did NOTHING for me.
