If you have turned to a debt settlement organization in order to find debt relief and find that the organization failed to help you handle any of your debt, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the company for committing fraud. Unfortunately, not all debt settlement companies are legitimate and some take advantage of their clients’ financial distress.
Potential Warning Signs
It is not always easy to recognize an illegitimate company, listed below are some of the potential warning signs that the debt settlement organization is operating illegally:
The company charges a set-up fee, high up-front fees or high monthly fees.
The company charges a fee based on a percentage of the debts resolved.
The company promises or guarantees that they can prevent liens, levies or wage garnishments.
The company fails to review Chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy protection.
