Will Credit Solutions send a Cease and Desist letter to the Today Show as well?

Credit Solutions of AmericaA few months ago I received a Cease and Desist letter from Credit Solutions of America for what they claimed were false and misleading statements I had written about them on my website.  You can see their letter and my response to it here.  Credit Solutions of America sends me a Cease and Desist Letter

Today I saw a very damaging piece of investigative reporting done by the Today Show regarding the business practices of Credit Solutions of America.  The Today Show was pretty much reporting the exact same things that I was warning consumers about in my articles.  Mainly the fact that they charged very high fees, produced little results for a majority of their clients and where involved in a number of legal actions brought by Attorney’s General in several states.

I am wondering if Credit Solutions will also be sending the producers of the Today Show a Cease and Desist letter, or is this stuff only false and misleading if I say it?

You can watch the report from the Today Show below.

    I signed with Credit solutions, sending them several hundred dollars over a period of about a year. The one settlement they were presenting were more than the original amt. what happened was all the late fees and Int added after I signed with them were what they were saving me?? I was led to understand that these would cease once they took over. They don’t return calls, it’s usually not the same person twice when you call, they are out to make money and leave the debtors in more debt. I am going to have to declare Bankruptcy, no other way.

    There is no way this will push through. They’d only be causing bad publicity for their company. And from what I know about media news networks, they don’t get intimidated by these types of things. It even makes them want to pursue the issue more.

    Paying for debt solutions never seemed like the right approach to me except maybe if the IRS is involved. I always wondered how these “credit solutions” services actually helped anyone.

    The thing about blogging is you can get in hot water, but if what you publish is true and you can back it up, then you shouldn’t really care. If what you say is true, then you’re providing a valuable service to help people not get dinged like you did.

    Companies will always try to protect their reputation, whether they are doing something wrong or not. I guess it’s expected that they sent you a cease and desist letter. They’re worried that your post can tarnish their brand. If they were worried that your blog can cause them damage, I could only imagine how frantic they are that a news network did a segment on them.
