I have about 4,000.00 in debt. I was looking into a debt consolidation company (elimidebt). would that be a good idea? is this a good company to go with, where can I go? I need to fix my credit, but am afraid to be taken advantage of by these companies. I googgled about these places and Ive read some pretty nasty things about them, like the credit card companies not receiving payments from them, please help!!
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
