WXYZ just ran a story warning warning consumers to beware of debt settlement companies that charge fees. It was yet another public notification that things in the debt settlement world when it comes to fees are going to change on October 27, 2010. The more that message can get out there, the better.
As more of this media coverage continues it may make it harder for lawyers that want to try and side-step the advance fee ban. More and more consumers are going to be aware that debt settlement companies should not charge fees up front and will balk at those that will.
