I am interesting with credit protect for business and bank protect security. Thank you for response.

I would like to get information some book from your advisor for protect credit scam payment.

I am done with this Federal Trade Commission! I have written a few complaints about a payday loan agency, ACS/Advance Cash Services and I have gotten nothing in return. You could at least tell me "there's nothing we can do, your old and you've been scammed or something"! Now they are using another name trying to get more from me. They are using the ploy, SS check will be held, see you in court, thousands of dollars to settle. This is enough to drive older people to extreme measures. Now I know what "going postal" feels like. So thanks for the no help, I sure appreciate it!

You can report problems with a debt collector to your state Attorney General’s office, the Federal Trade Commission, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Your Attorney General’s office can help you determine your rights under your state’s law.

If you need more help, you could check with a legal aid lawyer  or another attorney in your state. Some state bar associations help people find a lawyer, so you could search online for your state association and contact them.

Credit counselors help people with financial problems. This article tells you about choosing a Credit Counselor, and getting help with debt.
