Review Posted 4/4/2013
How can this company still be in business? Their practices are extremely unethical. They claimed they would help my financial situation and instead took thousands of dollars. Calls went unreturned, and when I complained they indicated that I neede... Read More »

Do not trust this company!
This company no longer provides the services they say they do. I would consider this company to engage in unethical and illegal business practices. They started off well but have stopped their services halfway into the contract. My contract ended... Read More »

Any pertinent information about this company is greatly appreciated from all viewers. Did this company move from Florida to New York, and then now back to Florida? Same owners?

If you used to work with FIRE, I would like to speak to you.

This company and the NY company any related company to "FIRE" is a scam. I paid a lot of money for settlements that I closed myself.

You can do it yourself without these dirtbags.

I hope the FEDS investigate this company.

I started with FIRE in Nov 2008...It is now Aug 2011. I had four creditors to negotiate with. Two out of the four were settled and I was impressed. That left me with two debts for FIRE to negotiate with. With one I had to go to court continuously... Read More »

Don't trust this company. They took almost $4000 of my money and have done nothing for me. I now have the 2 creditors that I wanted them to negotiate with calling for collections. Both of these creditors state that fire has never contacted them. I... Read More »

This company said they would settle with my creditors at down to 40 cents on the dollar. They were successful at 60 percent on one account. The other two...not so well! One of the two, I was taken to court and judgement against me was for the full... Read More »

DONT GIVE THIS COMPANY ANY MONEY! They took my money and did nothing for me. They tricked me into filling out "an application" which was really an E-sign contract. If I had done my research I would have known what a scam this is. Before I could ca... Read More »

Review 2/3/2010
F.I.R.E. is a rip off. I signed up with them back in March 2008 and its now Feb. 2010. I only had one card settled out of the 8 that I came up with. When I agreed to settle with that one card, I had to do all the running around to get my payment s... Read More »

The Attorney General's office is also a very useful place to find information on this company. You can find out right over the phone all about the complaints they have. Better to find out before you make any decisions about signing up and paying f... Read More »

Stay away from this company. I was lured in by an add on Facebook stating Washington State had passed a law to lower credit card debts by 60%. I gave my email address to the window that popped up and a representative from that company emailed me... Read More »

Review 1/8/2010
This company is a fraud. They take advantage of people who are desperate for a way to help pay off their creditors. The salespeople tell you one thing and once you give them your money, it is not what they promised. They say they work with all cre... Read More »
