Don’t Fall for the Siren-Song Pitches of Credit Card Debt Settlement Firms

A majority of these credit card debt settlement firms assure to keep up debt trouble for you. They
communicate with your credit card companies which means you do not need to. The problem is utilizing
them sets you out of the loop with all your creditors. You don't figure out what has been divulged with
regards to your finances. You don't recognize how your creditors are responding. Tread cautiously with
such firms, or even better, stay away from them.

The web debt forums offer many reports of credit card debtors being offended by these debt service
companies.

Credit card debt negotiation and debt settlement are fundamentally the exact same thing. You sign a
legal contract with an business delivering debt settlement/negotiation services. You don't make your
monthly credit card payments. Those monthly installments go to the settlement firm. Your money will
not be disbursed to your credit card accounts. Rather, your cash builds up to allow a credit card debt
negotiation or debt settlement for 50-70 percentage of the debt (essentially based on the promises of
individual settlement firms) once there are “sufficient” funds to commence bargaining for less-than-full-
value, lump-sum, paid-in-full payments. The debt settlement firm’s fees come out of your built up funds
prior to any creditors are paid.

The truth is the maths just doesn't work when you have to pay for debt settlement. This means you halt
making monthly obligations to financial institution funds to enable you to negotiate a lower balance by
providing a single payment. As a debt settlement tactic which makes sense. Nonetheless, if you're
paying for debt settlement, which makes no sense for the reason that debt settlement firm’s fee, and
that is generally in the thousands of dollars, comes out of your settlement fund.

To look at it one other way, the optimum time to negotiate a reduced balance one time payment is
about half a year whenever you stop making payments. That is when the credit card bank is about to
charge off your account and sell it for pennies on the dollar. In case you account balance is $12,000, and
you've got saved $6000, you will be able to find the bank to consider $6K as payment in full.
Nevertheless, for anyone who is with a debt settlement firm, $1500 - $2500 should first come out of
your settlement fund for settlement “fees.” Is the bank then going to be satisfied $3000?
