I am a foreign medical student doing clinical rotations here
Hi, I am a foreign medical student doing clinical rotations here in the US. The rotations are organized by a private company (Pinnacle Education Services) that my school in Mexico works with... The rotations are not as agreed upon. We pay a large sum of money to come do these rotations.

I dont have unpaid loans, but am getting calls. What to do?
A number of years ago over a short period of time I took out about three payday loans. I no longer have any record of the loans but I am confident that I paid most of them off. I cleaned up my credit and my wife and I purchased a house. Since we purchased a loan last year, I have been phoned three times by someone saying they are mediators calling to collect my unpaid loans. They have the last four numbers of my SSN but offer no proof that I still owe money. I have acknowledged taking loans but stated that I believed that I had repaid them all in full but I would be willing to pay if they provided evidence to me that I still owed. They provide no evidence but continue to threaten to damage my credit and take me to court. What are my options? I live in Washington DC.
I received a subrogation letter from a law office for an
Hello! I received a subrogation letter from a law office for an accident I was in. Should I pay it, no questions asked? The bill seems pretty high ($921) for the damage I caused. I haven't been sent any info on the repairs, and was never contacted back by the insurance company even though I called several times. I would like to make this right, and do the right thing but don't want to be scammed. Thanks AllieJA: Because consumer protection law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Sure, tennessee Also, I was on a scooter that is under the legal limit of cc's to require insurance, and thusly did not have any.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No, the man I hit was very mean and would not let me call the police. He also tried to coerce me to his home, and his friend tried to extort me for 1000.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, I don't think so Thanks!
Im from North Carolina. I had a judgement entered against me
Im from North Carolina. I had a judgement entered against me by a debt collection service. I still owe the amount of the judgement. I recently received a notice of a class action suit that if I make a claim, I would be entitled to compensation. My question revolves around the basis of the class action suit. The debt collection company was sued for illegal contact. What I need help with is determining if there are options for me to fight the judgement entered against me if the judgement was obtained through illegal contact.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: North CarolinaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: A judgement against me was filed several years agoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

The consumer protection agencies appear hapless against the Banksters. How can these agencies (FDIC,CFPB, Consumer Affairs, et al) be revised so that they actually have the power to help consumers defeat unfair banking practices?

I purchased a new car and traded in a car that I was upside down on. I purchased GAP through the dealer. I tried to get my financing done through my credit union but they took too long so I financed through another bank. I finally got into contact with my credit union and they stated they couldnt do as a new loan but as a refi since I already purchased. I refi and thought all was well. I ended up getting into a not at fault accident and my car was totalled. Going through the insurance process they paid off 21k and told me the rest should be covered through GAP. The credit Union told me I didnt have GAP and I told them I did.... I even have contract in hand. The rep then told me that when I did the refi that it cancelled the GAP I had on the original loan and I should have purchased a new GAP policy on the refi loan. Well this wasnt explained to me and it was not offered to me at all. Now I amon the hook for close to 12k! What if anything can I do? I live in California if that helps.
I recently signed a contract in Pennsylvania with a window
I recently signed a contract in Pennsylvania with a window company, during that time I wanted them to use a wells fargo visa credit line that I had out for other windows I had purchased from a different company. they did not know if that was possible and had me apply for a credit line with there finance company. I do not want 2 credit lines and I come to find out that is the only way I can obtain the windows. we are past the 3 day cooling off period however no goods have been ordered or installed yet and no money has changed hands, can I cancel this contract or will there be ramifications?JA: What is your official status?
