Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I'm an attorney. Please note this site is general information for educational purposes only and doesn’t constitute not legal advice. You might be offered a phone call, but you are under no obligation to accept; the phone call requests don’t come from me - they’re offered by the website - but if you do want a phone call I’d be happy to do that as well. I'll be happy to help you in any way I can.

Oh gosh, so I can't tell you that this specific company is a scam - b/c I simply don't know anything about them - but what I CAN tell you is that there is NO way they can possibly legally know whether they're going to pay off your debt. None - unless they have a crystal ball. And what *I* find is that when people use these "debt elimination services they frequently end up owing as much - or almost as much - as they did before they hired the company. If you have $13k in debt and they're charging you HALF as a fee without so much as an inkling of whether they'll be able to do anything about your debt, that's terrifying. So at least IF you decide to proceed, be aware of that. Also, if THEY reached out to you - as opposed to you having found them - that's a red flag. I hope that answers your question. As much as I wish it was otherwise, sometimes I have to give information that isn't "good news." I hope you don't take it out on me! If it were up to me, I'd only give people good news! Please let me know if that answers your question. If you don't need any additional information, if you wouldn't mind could you please take a moment to submit a rating. It DOES NOT cost you anything extra and it allows me to get credit for helping you. Sometimes people aren't aware that experts don't get any credit for the time and effort that we spend on our answers unless you rate it positively. 5 STARS is always appreciated! If you have follow up questions I'd be happy to answer them as well. You can still ask follow up questions after rating. There may be some lag in my response time if you follow up with additional questions. It just means I'm working with someone else but I will ALWAYS come back an answer your questions when I'm done.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
