I am thinking of doing a debt settlement on two medical bills I have and I was going to do it through The law offices fo Bonnie Canty in FL. Included in my monthly payment will be a $25 service fee and a $750 retainer for her services. Does that sound about right? Can anyone recommend another alternative?
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.
