You don’t have to look very hard these days to find companies tripping over themselves offering consumer debt help. It is essentially capitalism at work or a matter of basic supply and demand. For the last 5 years, the debt relief industry has exploded simply because of the large demand of consumers who where in trouble and looking for help.
Of course the explosion in the industry is not all good news. These days consumers must really do their homework before entrusting their financial future to just any “Johnny Come Lately” debt relief program. Many of these programs didn’t even exist a few years ago and just recently decided to jump in and take advantage of a huge consumer demand.
Real Consumer Debt Help Does Exist
You Just Have To Look Hard
Spend a few minutes on Google looking at various Internet complaint boards, the BBB and even the website of various state AG offices and it will be clear from the sheer number of consumer complaints that most of the debt relief programs offered to consumers had no real experience or expertise to offer the type of services that they were.
Over the last few years there has been a large money grab and a cash cow opportunity for many businesses to start up, make unfounded and outrageous claims and sell hope to cash strapped consumers. A slick looking website can now be created overnight and with a simple keystroke you are open for business.
The need for consumer debt help is very real, but hiring a company that is more focused on sales than they are on service will just make your financial problems worse. It is very important for consumers to spend some time and do some research beyond a debt relief company’s website.
Search the Internet for potential complaints that other consumers may have experienced. Look at the companies BBB profile to see if there are a large number of unresolved complaints there as well. You should also look at the track record of the business. If they opened their doors only a few years ago, and they are promising a program that will have you out of debt in 3 or 4 years, then what are they basing those claims on?
Understandably, when you are in debt, you just want to find a solution and implement it as quickly as possible. However take the advice of the thousands of consumers who have already been burned by “Johnny Come Lately” debt relief providers and invest a few hours to investigate several companies before you are potentially led down a primrose path by someone just looking to make a buck.
