When I withdrew from this program I they refused to give me all of my money back Just gave me {$960.00} When I called the credit card company they advised me to wait until The accounts ” charged off ” and I would work a payment plan with them. I spoke to them on XX/XX/XXXX. When I called them on XX/XX/XXXX, the day they suggested and they told me it was already sent to a third party. When I called the third party they said it was transferred to an attorney. When I called the attorney they would not speak to me. They need to speak to United Debt Counselors.
