Ultimate Debt Help Guide – All Your Debt Relief Solution Needs A-Z

September 24th, 2022

I am constantly hearing horror stories about how people looking for debt relief are being misled and given bad advice about their debt relief options. It is ridiculous that the people who need the most help get treated the worst. Some people would rather suffer in their debt than seek the help they need. This is largely due to companies that are unethical and only interested in taking your money or that they have bought into false information about these programs. We’re going to clear the air and debunk the myths about debt as well as arm you with the information you need become debt free.

Why things are the way they are?
Words like morels,Guest Posting ethics and honesty no longer carry the weight they once did. Human nature is such that when an opportunity arises to make a quick buck people will do anything to get their slice of the yummy greedy pie. These scam artists are smart too! They know that when people are desperate they make poor decisions. I’m not going to dive too deep into the psychology of it but you need to know what drives and motivates these people if you want to avoid them. In nature it’s the week and the young that are the easiest prey while the strong survive. The same basic concepts apply to the predators and prey of life; if you want to survive in today’s jungle you need you need to be prepared.

Knowledge is power
It’s time to attend the SCHOOL OF DEBT. First things first let’s cover the three available programs and the various names they go by.
1. Debt Settlement also referred to as Debt Negotiation or Debt Arbitration.
2. Debt Management also referred to as Consumer Credit Counseling, Credit Counseling, CCCS, Consumer Credit Counseling Service, Debt Management Plan or DMP.
3. Debt Consolidation Loan – Any loan that consolidates your debt.

As you can see there are really only a few methods or programs but numerous name variations. This can be confusing at times. Another commonly used and frequently misunderstood word is “debt consolidation”. Consolidation is not a program type. It is a word that has a very broad meaning. Technically, all three relief programs can be considered a form of consolidation in one way or another. So remove this word from your vocabulary for now. And I’ve purposely left out Bankruptcy as an option because the goal here is to avoid it.

What to Look For When Selecting Debt Management Companies

March 22nd, 2022

Alongside the ongoing collapse of the American economy, with lender after lender filing for bankruptcy protection and real estate markets crumbling at the nation’s feet, there is, at least, one industry that continues to rise in both popularity and productivity. Yes, our debt management firms have shown exponential growth over the last few years, and, with the larger financial picture unlikely to change any time soon, consumers shall continue to flock to every company that promises a reduction of payments and interest rates for the debts that accumulated back in the good old days. You are, we’re sure, at least familiar with the notion of debt management.

From billboards to television commercials to soft-sell magazine articles highlighting the various approaches, debt management has become a buzz word for all segments of the economy whether or not you’re trying to get out of a negative equity residence or simply trying to erase a few thousand dollars of credit card debt whose minimum payments you can no longer maintain. In the greater sense, for most borrowers, undertaking the process of debt management will be to your advantage regardless of the path you choose. While there are obvious drawbacks to Consumer Credit Counseling (FICO score wreckage resembling that of Chapter 7 bankruptcies) and home equity debt consolidation (incredibly dangerous in a time of tumbling property values), there remains a number of debt management forms – debt settlement negotiation, which can reduce borrowers’ balances by as much as fifty percent with a few phone calls for relatively low cost to the pocketbook or credit report, chief among them – that have demonstrable value to even the most dubious debtor.

Of course, at the same point, for every good and legitimate debt management firm, there are others who are simply out to make the fast buck regardless of their client’s well being. In this article, we would like purely to highlight some of the more egregious complaints our correspondents have reported when attempting debt consolidation with the hope that you would be able to sniff out a malfeasant business and select one that truly has you and your family’s best interests in heart. Obviously, there is a good deal more investigation that needs to be done well before you even meet with a specific company.

Considering all of the different approaches to debt management available, you have to make sure that you have a full and complete grasp of each one, from debt settlement to Consumer Credit Counseling and beyond, before even looking at the different possibilities in your area – or, these days, on the internet. Ask yourself: is it possible to pay off your credit cards and unsecured loans through traditional means in a reasonable amount of time? How important will your credit rating be to your plans over the near future? Do you plan to buy a house or refinance your current residence in the next few years? Do you want (or, even, need) to maintain some lines of credit available during the process of debt management? These are questions for another essay, we shan’t possibly have the space to outline every potentiality (nor, obviously, could we pretend to know your own specific financial scenario), but you can do so much of this sort of fact finding with just a little bit of research about debt management and all that the programs entail.

Still, once you have decided upon a specific approach to follow, there are a number of warning signs to look out for when selecting your debt management company, and we would merely like to delve into a few of these threats. For one instance, you should always ensure that whichever firm you have considered working with requires all of the following data before they offer any sort of estimate: identity of each lender, the interest rates of each accounts, minimum (and, under unusual circumstances, maximum) payments requested from each lender, past and current late payments as noted (or about to be noted) upon your credit report, and, as well, any significant account activity which may include balance transfers or relatively greater purchases in recent years. If the company happily provides a quote without such information, this should seem highly suspicious to the borrower.
