Choosing a debt settlement company can be a daunting task itself. There are many companies out there that make big promises and unfortunately have a reputation of not delivering. We hear too many stories about scammers and other fly-by-night companies that take they money of hard working people without doing anything to resolve their debt. Some of these companies offer a debt consolidation solution but charge up-front fees, initiation costs, and retainer fees before they even lift a finger to help the customer. Fortunately, many of these companies are no longer in business.
Consider Fees, Accreditation, and Services
When choosing which debt settlement company you want to work with, it is important to consider several factors. Does the company charge up-front fees or consultation charges? Are they accredited by The American Fair Credit Council (AFCC) or affiliated with the International Association of Professional Debt Arbitrators (IAPDA)? What kind of personalized services do you receive with each company? How easy is it to reach a representative to discuss your case?

I can tell you that after spending 15 years on the sides of creditors who utilize any means possible to try to get their money from you, I am now proud to finally work in a position that allows me to turn the tables and actually help my clients settle their overwhelming debts.
