Beware of Debt Settlement Companies

This is the truth about debt consolidation and debt settlement companies: in most cases, they charge significant fees and take a long time to do any work on behalf of the client. In the end, the terms of any settlements are no better than what an individual could do on his own or her own.
The following are some factors to consider before using a debt settlement company:
- it has been proven that most debt settlement services are frauds
- there’s a high number of reported rip you offs
- the Federal Trade Commission has warned consumers to avoid most debt settlement companies

- you can still sued, have your wages garnished, or have liens placed against your assets while in these programs
- credit card interest rates do not stop when you are in a debt settlement program.
- you can still face negative tax implications
