Check customer reviews of settlement companies to be sure that the one you’ve chosen offers services as promised
Make sure the debt settlement program complies with BBB (Better Business Bureau) standards
Checklist of BBB requirements to get enlisted:
- How long the business has been operating
- The number of and nature of complaints against the company
- Any licensing or government actions against the organization
- Transparency of the business
It is better if you choose a settlement company that has BBB accreditation. However, if you cannot find one, you can approach a law firm.
