If you are experiencing problems with your creditors here are a few tips:
Abolish Debt Collectors?
Only, the unprofessional ones …
Don’t let them bully you
When a person contacts Solutions™ for credit counseling it is usually (though not always) due to the fact that a debt collector is harassing them and they do not know what their rights are. People that seek the help of a qualified licensed credit counsellor are to be congratulated – these people have acknowledged their accountability and responsibility for the debt.
Debt collectors have no right to harass them, or anyone else for that matter. If debt collectors are harassing you, you do have RIGHTS, lots of them. Don’t let them bully you!
Remember, if you are experiencing financial difficulties do not wait. Speak to a professional today!
