Beware of scams that promise to get rid of your debt

When you are in serious debt, doing almost anything to make the overwhelming debt go away seems worth a shot. Unfortunately, people who are in a volatile situation like this are often the targets of scammers who claim they will make all of your debt disappear if you pay them a one time fee, give them access to your bank accounts or give them your Social Security Number. Under no circumstances should you ever give a stranger over the phone access to this sensitive information.

There is a difference between a legitimate debt relief company and someone pretending to be one. The way you can tell is that if the debt relief company is legitimate, they will never ask you to pay them up front. If you do fall victim to a scam, you should inform the Federal Trade Commission.

If you are drowning in debt and don’t know where to turn, please give our office a call. We can assess your financial situation and help you find a way out. The best option for you might be to file bankruptcy.
