In May of 2013, my wife hired Debt Defense Services,to resolve credit card debt she had.We paid $350.57 a month,from May 2013 to May 2015,over $8,400.00.We heard not a thing from them,assuming all was fine,after our last payment in May of 2015…..March 18,2016,my wife was served with lawsuit papers,concerning one of the credit cards Debt Defense Services was supposed to help Marcia with.Phone calls to D D S on March 20,2016 were told ‘phones have been disconnected’….
Consumer Action Taken:
An E mail to DDS on 3-20-2016 was also unanswered.I filed a complaint with the Attorney General,of Maryland.On April 18,2016,informing me Debt Defense Services was out of business,’principals cannot be located’.I also filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.On April 22,2016,someone claiming to be from Debt Defense Services answered my complaint,claiming they supplied all of their clients with ‘updated contact information’,by letter,E mail and by phone,which they never did.Of special interest,is the letter from the Attorney General of Maryland,dated 4/18/2016,stating they are out of business,while on 4/22/2016,,someone claiming to be from Debt Defense Services answered this complaint.I hired Debt Defense Services in May of 2013,IN GOOD FAITH,and feel nothing was done,for me.Being that I am on a fixed income,it makes this especially difficult for me.Photo1below,is a partial list of withdrawals by Debt Defense Services from our checking account,photo 2 is my letter from the Attorney General of Maryland,informing me of DDS going out of business.
