Debtorboards And Coupon Mom Offer Help To Consumers Unlike Fraudulent Debt Settlement Companies


In these tough economic times it's very challenging to stay on top of the bills while paying down credit cards if you're an average working class citizen. For millions of troubled consumerAmericans who are feeling the pinch of reduced hours at work, they turn to credit cards to help them through these tough times. 

If you have a heavy credit card debt load and something goes wrong in your life it's easy to panic.  Many turn to debt settlement companies, which are nothing more than parasites and vultures who prey upon the desperation of consumers trapped under the yoke of credit card debt.

If you are thinking about "working with" a debt settlment company prepare to be screwed...royally.  They promise you that they'll get your debts settled for 30 cents on the dollar.  However, there's one catch-you have to stop paying your creditors while you pay the debt settlement company each month. And, guess what? You have to "build up" the money in the account before they'll allegedly try to settle your debts. 

For some people who are $20,000 in debt it may take three years or better to build up enough money in the debt settlment account before they can attempt to settle your debts.  By that point you'll probably have been sued already and will have had your wages garnished. Thousands of people fall for the debt settlment scams and would be better of declaring bankruptcy especially considering there's no promise that a credit card company will negotiate.  Then you're out all of that money and up the creek without a paddle. 

Many of these debt settlment parasites try to associate themselves with President Obama's bailout programs, which is about as lowrent as it gets.  Now that the bottom-feeding debt settlement companies are being exposed for fraud, hopefully Uncle Sam can outlaw this rotten industry.  Senator Jay Rockefeller said he expressed "disdain and contempt" for practices that the Government Accountability Office found when they had investigators posing as consumers with debt problems contact twenty debt settlement companies.
