My wife and i have about 20 k in cc debit. we have the money to pay the the balance in full but in this economic environment we don’t want to release that much cash.
How would we go about reaching a settlement with theses company’s or should we even try?
Well that is a good question. Whether or not you should try is not a question I can answer without knowing anything about your situation. The short answer to how you settle with a creditor is stop paying, wait awhile, then negotiate.
That being said, I wouldn’t recommend a consumer just blindly stop paying and hope for the best. Every creditor is different and you could leave quite a bit of money on the table if you don’t have current information about their policies. You can certainly negotiate directly with your creditors without hiring a settlement company if you wish, but at minimum I recommend getting someone that can coach you through the process.
If you would like to discuss the options with me have me help you determine whether or not you should roll the dice and jump into settlement, please contact me through my website to set up a consultation.
