  1. We are NOT a scam….We have a B rating on the BBB…a less then 1% ration of complaints in the 9 years we have been in buisness. You consumers need to realize that even your FAVORTIE restaraunt will have complaints, but you still go there correct? PFS is accredit with the USOBA and the Merrimack Valley Chamber of Commerce so it’s far from a scam…We are able to save people thousands of dollars an d hundreds on a monthly basis to help BETTER their financial situation. You have to understand there are pros and cons of every buisness, but 95% of our clients ARE satisfied and we do exactly what and how we explained. You also need to be careful. there are other companies with the same name in different parts of the US>..the legitimate company is out of Andover MA…and we are liscenced and bonded in several states. How could we be fraugelent when we take no up front fees or charges?? We are a PREFORMANCE based companie…if you dont have a full understanding of the debt settlment process then that is your fault for not asking enough questions to your program advisor..We help people the best way for their situation bottom line…

  4. When I first read about PFS, I had pulled up an article that appeared to be an ad on CNN’s website. It was very professional, but explained how the new credit card legislation would hurt (rather than help) consumers. The information was very misleading, luring the consumer into their services. This is a much more informative site:

    There are smart techniques to get out of debt, but PFS appears to be a scam compared to doing it yourself. I would recommend http://www.creditinfocenter.com instead. This is a FREE do-it-yourself credit repair site which explains everything from calculating your own credit score, obtaining a free credit report, paying down debt (the smart way), and negotiating with the credit card companies when push comes to shove. I have cleaned up my report (which had three mistakes) and negotiated my interest rate with my credit card company. If you are willing to be just as persistent as PFS, some CC companies will forgive some of your debt if they think that you are about to go bankrupt (in which case they would loose all of your debt). This may be a tempting offer, but it should still be used only in the worst case scenario because it can damage your credit. You will want to know how the forgiven debt will show up on your credit report.

  6. Hi Steve..

    I, too, have a had a conversation or two w/ PFS. Boy,once they get
    hold of your phone #,they are RELENTless. By the way, I recently looked
    up PFS on the BBB website- they got an F !!!The gent I spoke to @PFS tried
    to poo-poo this as not meaning very much,of course.The problem is, as
    you pointed out,is that there are no clear-cut indications that Debt
    Relief is ACTually a viable way to deal w/ one’s debt.There is a LOT
    of info out there; trying to make sense of it all is a very daunting
    prospect.Despite having read MANY articles about D.R., I feel no closer
    to knowing if this might be right for me than I did b4 I started
    researching the topic! I did call my creditor; their official response
    was that they “don’t deal w/ D.R. companies”. The big question is: why
    would a creditor to whom one might owe,say,$10,000 accept $5000?
    It just doesn’t seem very logical.

  7. Well they are definitely not “a scam” – they do legitimately help people get out of debt – like me! There are so many people that get into a program that have no idea what they’re getting into and freak out and then blame it on the company. They saved my @$$ and I have nothing but nice things to say about them. I hate to see them bashed when they actually do what they say they are going to do.
