So they are scamming more than me ?

WE must stop this firm Diana Matthews and Art Matthews are the ones running this debt Settlement company that they are calling a law firm. I requested all my money back and they refused. I also am filing a complaint with the federal trade commission and the California attorney general

I have been with the Matthews Law firm too. You are wrong the first three payments don't go to the creditor, it is a debt settlement company. You gather funds and then they make agreements to the credit card company to settle for a fair price. How can they pay off your debts in three payments?????? Read your agreement. I think your mad because your in debt, its a good company. I have 2 debts paid off already by them for a great deal... Being debt is bad it hurts, but its my fault, my agreement with them is 36 months, not three months. So I suck it up, and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel but it takes time. Don't bash a good honest company because you can get out of debt in 3 months. I asked about the F rating and I checked around every debt company in that BBB area has a F rating they have 12 complaints all resolved, the other companies I checked into had 246 complaints and a F??? How can that be???? so I checked and ALL DEBT COMPANIES have a F in the area from the BBB. The BBB just does not like settlements company not just Matthews Law Firm all of them. So do you homework before you bash a good company. The attorney has a spotless record, and has practice law for almost 20 years. Look for some else to blame for your debt problems...

I have been with Matthews for nearly 2 years, and they have hel;ped fight for me in virtually evey situation. I was heavily in debt for business failures due to the collapse of the economy. Still in debt settlement mode. Will be for 3 years. It sucks, but I got myself in and I am getting myself out. You pay for their service; 15% of your debt. Nothing is free. You need an advocate. That is why you hire an attorney. Maybe you know of an easier way to represent yourself? All settlement companies have someone complaining about poor service, but you need opatience and proper representation and Matthews will do what they have to do to help. Until the day they stop providing the service I contracted for, they are worthy of your attention and consideration for managing your debt settlement.

For one Tom learn how to spell, maybe that is your problem. Can you read the contract? And if you could of paid the creditors and got better deals why didn't you? Some people can not self save and some people can not deal with the very mean creditors. So shut up, learn how to read and write and stop slandering a good company. Buy the way, maybe you work for another debt company, and you are saying these things to get more business. How do we know. The Attorney is a honest and hard working man. Learn more about what you sign and what the company can do and you would not writing these things. Well I don't know if I would call that writing!!!

To all you stupid people that can't read your contract!!! I have seen so many debt settlement companies out there that don't care about their customers but Matthews does, the attorney Mr. Arturo Matthews is a great man and really takes his time to talk to us as consumers. I have talked to him and have had nothing but genuine interest from him. He's really an honest person and my case worker is great too. She is always on top of things and has settled two of my lawsuits. So BEFORE YOU TALK CRAP!!! LEARN HOW TO READ!!! IVE NEVER KNOWN SOMEONE THIS STUPID, THAT WOULD COMPLAIN FOR NOT READING OR LISTENING!!! U SHOULD THANK THAT THERE ARE ATTORNEYS OUT THERE THAT ARE WILLING TO HELP!!!

the people at mathews have always called me back and been nice to me through my whole debt settlement process. The only problem I am having right now is that I have been payingo ver $500 a month for over a year and a half and not one penny has been paid to any of my debtors and in the meatn time my credit has been trashedand I have my biggest creditor garnishing my wages. All Mathews has said is that they cannot settle with them and they want me to remove the debotr from the program...I think since they guranteed me they would settle all accounts that they are required to pay this debotr our of the thousands of dollars they have been paid up front by me...is this correct. They cannot just tell me to drop the debtor and leave me getting garnished. On top of that is I remove this debtor I told them I want my %15 back they took on comission of this account. Big mess right now and I am not use to this debt. My wife lost her job and we had a baby at same time...lost over $70k in income and went from 800+ credit to the toilette. I want to pay off my debts but cannot seem to get ahead even with all of Mathews Law promises. Let me know please if you can answer my questions. JDPPGA@aol.com Thank you!

Greetings! While i have not engaged in relationship to debt consolidation with the matthews, i have purchased real estate from the couple. That would be a once lovely, $1.6 million home riddled with mold, toxins & parasites; speaking of parasites, art & diana knowingly sold that home to me without full dre transfer disclosure honesty; illegal & shameful! You would assume an upstanding legal team would know the law... But what happens when trusting souls assume? It makes an ### out of u & me!!! That said, an attorney not abiding by nor practicing law should not be trusted, severely reprimanded & disbarred. Oh, before that happens, maybe i should retain their firm to consolidate & rid me of the debt & horrendous torment accruing as i desperately attempt to remediate a moldy house & all my loss of its' contents! For everyone reading this, bear in mind money isn't everything... Try losing your health & your life for the love/greed of it! K. Walker, newport beach, ca
