Ask The Get Out of Debt Experts

Is National Debt Relief Not the Number One Debt Relief Company?

Written by Steve Rhode


Dear Steve,

I’m looking to consolidate debt but have too many bills.

I just signed up with National Debt Relief, I read that they were one of the number one debt relief companies.. is that not the case?



Dear Angela,

I am always perplexed when someone asks me this sort of question. It is so subjective. I have no idea where you read they are one of the number one debt relief companies or how that entity determined that. But you’ve got to wonder what were they claimed to be rated as number one in. Is it a rating about customer satisfaction, low fees, debt elimination performance, or what?

What might be the most important factor in what makes a company number one for you is probably entirely different for the next person.

Ultimately only you can be satisfied with the company you selected. So I’ll do what I often do and invite you to do your own research to answer that question to your satisfaction.

You might want to read the following free guides to help you in your research.

  3. How to Check Out a Business or Company to Avoid Getting Scammed or Ripped Off

If you can, please post in the comments where you saw that rating so everyone can put it into context with your question.

I’ll email National Debt Relief and ask them to post a comment on your question as well.


You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.

  • My guess would be no they are not the best. Given their offices are located in some of the most expensive part of NY near wall street, they have an attorney on staff dong advance fee model, owns many of the review sites they place themselves #1 on and I can go on and on. You pay what you get for. They currently are being sued by employees for not paying over time, have 400 sales reps working marketing that isn’t compliant etc etc etc. Find a company that isn’t so big, filthy and has a reputation that they didn’t pay for. Look at a consumer credit counseling company or a legitimate debt negotiation company. good luck!

    • Perfect answer!!!!! They own the review sites, bottom line. Its their marketing strategy, its definitely deceptive marketing at the least.
