High Failure Level in Debt Consolidation
Debt Consolidation May Not Be the Right Solution
Debt consolidation plans may sound extremely attractive, especially if you fear a bankruptcy filing. However, there are many debt consolidation scammers who may target you for their unethical, and often illegal, practices. These disreputable companies promise to reduce your debt by an enormous percentage and put you on an affordable payment plan. They agree to collect your payments and then distribute those funds to your creditors. They often ask for a substantial down payment and charge fees each month without delivering on their promises.
Don’t be a victim of a scam. Instead, contact a licensed and insured Los Angeles attorney for a realistic discussion of your debt situation and a solution that will lead to long-term relief.
Preventing the Consequences of Debt Consolidation Failure
Unfortunately, even well-intentioned debt consolidation plans fail. The debtor may plan to repay their creditors, but the initial plan may not have been feasible. In many instances, making the consolidated debt payment will not reduce the debt at all. This leads to an unbreakable cycle that makes long-term financial health, including access to credit, impossible.
If a dishonest debt consolidation company collects your fees but does not pay your creditors, you may face a collection lawsuit, foreclosure, repossession, and wage garnishment. Your financial challenges will be exacerbated, and your credit may be devastated. If you lose your job or suffer some other setback, you may have no recourse.
