Re: debt scam

Experian keeps credit records but is not a collection agency. ignore that email.

they guy who tricked you before is trying to trick you again, or he sold you to other scammer.

Re: debt scam

if its not too hard, you can change your email. you might be on a "sucker list" now and may get hundreds of "offers".

Re: debt scam

Hi there!I can not give you any new advice but may be you will feel better if you know that you're not alone in this situation. I've received exact the same email yesterday. I was shocked at first because i don't have any debts. i even emailed to Experian's customer service. They told me that i have to call them on the phone. So, i was going to do it tomorrow. But i Goo..ed this company and found your post. Yes, i think you're right and all this sh.t happens because of using ....slist. I have been using it too often last days because i'm looking for job.
Ia can not change my email address now but definitely will do it in a future. And you have a great day and don't worry too much, ok? When you worry you make it double, right?:)

Don't worry about it... Having your address, that is.. You got scammed, the poster above is right, you might be put on a sucker list... If it is easy to change your email address change it, if not just delete all of those, when they come in..

Re: debt scam

Well all I can say is that, not all debt services are scams, I even have a blog about good services (consolidation, settlement) for debt. See it on USA Debt Settlement, and you'll see. Just choose the right one.
