Complaint / review text:
I received a letter today from National Financial Assistance Center. Its title was Hardship Assistance Notification, 2010 Debt Relief Program, and re: Preliminary Acceptance. I have received one other letter from a similarly titled business which I threw away. Each letter came as a result of information obtained from Experian. I have been unemployed for 11 months and money is tight. I have no doubt that the all powerful Experian Agency can collect information on me, but can they sell it to firms such as these?
Did the firms legitimately get that information from this type of agency or was this just a shot in the dark? If they are selling names, does this lower their legitimacy and even more so, is it a breach of confidentiality concerning my private information? Everything I have read, cautions using these types of agencies to lessen debt. Again if that is correct, I am more concerned about how they got this information. A lower credit score or rating of my credit worthiness is damaging in and of itself so if this agency is giving out information for financial gain, how can they be considered reputable sources of such sensitive information?
