Beware of Debt Relief Companies
Debt relief companies advertise heavily in print, on television, over the radio and through the Internet. Unfortunately, many of them engage in fraudulent practices. They often promise what they cannot deliver:
- Easy debt consolidation and lower payments on debt!
- End wage garnishment and creditor harassment!
- Stop foreclosure on your home and repossession of your automobile without bankruptcy!
Many of these companies are uninsured and unregulated. Many make false claims and even purport to be affiliated with the government. They may say anything to get you to adhere to their conditions and take your money. Some of their promises may even prove to be true for a short-period of time. Don’t be taken in by their scam and don’t buy something that is too good to be true.
Instead of trusting your financial health to a credit relief agency or debt negotiation company that asks for a significant amount of money up-front, call a law firm that focuses on real debt relief.

Debt Relief Predators Emerged in the Great Recession
The Great Recession wreaked havoc on millions of Americans. If you were the victim of the Great Recession, a sub-prime mortgage agreement that devastated your finances, you incurred large credit card debts and you were otherwise victimized by the worst economic situation in almost 100 years, you may have been the target of debt relief predators. They may have made false promises and participated in fraudulent practices and stuck you with a bill and no relief.
The Great Recession lingers but the worst is likely in the past. However, many of the debt relief fraudsters still exist. Fraud is widespread in the so-called debt consolidation, creditor negotiation and credit counseling industry. If you have already fallen prey to one of these “avoid bankruptcy,” “stop foreclosure,” or “debt consolidation” scams, you may already realize that getting your money back will likely be an uphill battle. We may be able to help because we offer comprehensive representation in this area of the law.
