Although I sold my company, the credit card has my personal name as guarantor. The current owners have been paying off the $20,000 debt very slowly, and after 6 years are only down to $12,000 with exorbitant interest fees and have damaged my rating. How is a better rate negotiated to be able to terminate this eternal tale?
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
