I think I owe about $15,000 in several credit cards, not one. If I take help from a settlement company, can anyone give an idea regarding the average settlement percentge of debt? My $15,000 dollars can be reduced to what amount? I know it depends on the credit card company, but, any idea can help me make the decision, because also I have to pay professional fees for settlement.

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.
