Customer Question

You helped me with an issue a little while ago concerning a loan I took out not realizing it would be taken out of my SS. Which is all I have to live on. I closed my account and now have my monies direct deposit to an opt debit card. I sent the company's cease and desist letters as you requested. Today I got a package from them FedEx. I am afraid to open it for fear of going to jail. What should my next step be?

Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

Let me assure you. You cannot go to jail for not paying a bill. At most you could be sued for the debt and you will not be served with a lawsuit though FedEx. You would be served a summons and complaint by a police officer or a process server.

It is perfectly safe to open the envelope from FedEx.
