When you call most 800 numbers looking for help with your debt, you will usually be talking to someone like Dave. Here is a guy that laughs all the way to the bank for pocketing $7680 for throwing some unlucky consumer into a B.S. Front loaded fee debt settlement program that is a horrible financial solution under any circumstances.
Keep in mind, that was just his commission for screwing this unlucky consumer. This video was posted 11 months ago. The website of this company is not even online anymore. Good thing they charged all their fees upfront before they went out of business.
My guess is their doors closed the same day the FTC put their foot down and made what these jokers were doing illegal. These guys are likely still out there under a different name now and using a slightly different pitch. Unfortunately there are thousands of “Daves” out there and they won’t let little things like laws keep them from selling you a load of crap just to get your money upfront and laugh all the way to the bank with it.
I don’t know what background or financial education Dave has, but do you think he provides his marks (consumers) with unbiased information about the best strategy for a client with a specific set of circumstances to get out of debt? What are the odds that Dave pushes debt settlement to every consumer he talks to? Maybe just a few huh?
Maybe Dave is a really nice guy and just maybe Dave doesn’t know what a bad thing he is doing. Well Dave, when you read this article then you will know that what you did was not good. If you want to know why, leave a comment and I will tell you. If you want to make it right, you can start by calling all of those people that you put into the program, offer as much of their money back as you can and then point them in the direction of something that will actually help them with their problem.
The sad thing is that these are real lives and families that are getting destroyed by these guys and thousands of others out there just like them. Some ignorant to the carnage they cause, some not, but all equally responsible for their actions.
