We Went Through Tough Times But Now Want to Consolidation Our Debt. – Debi

“Dear Steve,

We went through tough times.. my husband was out of work and I was a commissioned salesperson and sales were down. we went through loan modification and succeeded and we have alot of equity in out house. Business picked up and we make a good income now. I first looked for a second on my house and I could find no one that would do that for me. i want to do debt consolidation but I have been unable to find anyone honest.

We owe about 50K in old debt and want to find an honest debt consolidation company.. Has anyone had a good experiences from any of them? I have been through modification (and survived) but these old bills are keeping me from having even 1 extra penny… please help me ..any advice would be appreciated

Thank you

Debi”
