Don’t fall victim to debt relief scams

On behalf of Jamie L. Gingold, PC, (Formerly practicing with Gingold & Gingold LLC) posted in Credit Card Debt on Thursday, May 28, 2015.

In this day and age, your contact information can be accessed by others much more easily than you think. Email and phone lists for one company can be purchased and used by other parties, lawfully or not. When you sign up for things online or give out your phone number for applications and other services, that information is not guaranteed to be safe and used only by the parties to whom it was given.

This is why debt relief scams are so common. Companies access this contact information and send emails and make phone calls to people claiming to be a legitimate debt-relief company; people fall victim to these tactics because the company knows their name and may sound like it has the answer to solving debt problems quickly.

These scams, a few of which we described in this article on our website, take advantage of people in a vulnerable and scary position. They try to capitalize on a person’s anxiety and desire to just get rid of debt as quickly and easily as possible; ultimately they may do nothing but take money and make matters worse.

It can be crucial to avoid these scams, and there are a few ways to do this. According to the Federal Trade Commission, much of these avoidance tactics rely on a person using common sense. For example, you should probably avoid companies that:

  • Guarantee quick results and complete discharge of unsecured debts
  • Ask you for bank and credit card account information
  • Cannot or will not send you information about their organization and services
  • Contacts you via a robocall without your permission

These can be serious red flags that a debt relief company is illegitimate and not actually interested in helping you.

Generally speaking, any person or company that claims to be able to solve your debt problems overnight and without your help should raise some concerns. Resolving debt, dealing with foreclosure and rebuilding your financial future can all be complicated processes that take some time and requires you to take certain steps and make certain decisions.

Rather than run the risk of adding more problems to the already-stressful situation of being in debt, it can be crucial that you speak with someone who is clear on bankruptcy laws and options and can discuss your individual situation with you.

    They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

    Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

    I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

    Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

    I contacted getting old and getting old regarding some old tax debt and credit card debt that I needed to address and had been putting off. miss Irving in the office was very very nice and put me at ease. I met with Jaime Gingold. She was very nice and explained the procedure to me and what would be left owing to the Internal Revenue Service and the State of Georgia after my case was done. My case has now been completed and I am on my way to a new start. Thank you Gingold and Gingold for all of your help.
