Scam or not???

Options
I have just been aproached by a company that claims that it's possible to get ny loans and credit cards balances wiped off because that they might not be enforcable. It relates to loans or credit cards that were taken out before April 2008. Has anyone else heard of this??

    Read the many "first-time posts" that appear on here every day. Not really a scam, but most people lose money with it

    do some research here and elsewhere (CAG). Plenty of info. The law (CCA) around this practice is well defined and is not really open to interpretation. It is a case of establishing a strong legal basis and negotiating with the lender. Don't pay upfront for an assessment, you will find companies who will do it for free.
