Q: I paid a debt relief company monthly payments for 3 years and none of my debt was paid down. Can I get my money back?
I paid in almost twice my debt and they didn’t settle any of my debt. Payments over $200 month for 3 years. I called the company numerous times and they kept “disconnecting” me so I’d have to call back again and again. I finally called their bank and asked them to send me, in the mail, all the statements showing my payments. I finally received them today, 3 months later. I expected to have these cards paid off within a year. Now I just want my money that was just taken and not paid to any of the creditors.
A: Most likely yes but you will have to sue the debt relief company.
