Total Debt Freedom believes the best solution is to deal with most serious debt problems is through the settlement of debts, not a new debt consolidation loan. This way you are dealing directly with the problem rather then creating new ones. Debt consolidation loans at 35% interest are a lucrative business for lenders and can be obscenely profitable. We suggest staying well clear of expensive loans. The only time you should consolidate debt is long before your credit goes bad. But once your bank turns you down, debt consolidation can be an expensive and almost impossible route to getting out of debt.
How Debt Settlement Works at Total Debt Freedom
Our debt help program, also known as debt negotiation, debt reduction or debt settlement, is an aggressive approach to getting you out of credit card debt. It is appropriate for people with unsecured debt from $10,000 up to $500,000. Our program is affordable and custom tailored to each of our client’s ability and resources to settle.
Our program is so effective that most of our clients find that upon completion they have become debt free in 3 years for considerably less than what they owed when they started, and that includes our fee.
According to bankrate.com’s credit card calculator someone with only a $10,000 credit card debt at 18% interest would take nearly 58 years to pay off this debt off assuming that person sticks to the minimum payment each month. Total interest paid during that time would be $28,931 plus the $10,000 original balance. Since September 2010 the Canadian government has forced changes to the way your credit card statements look, now they need to disclose the true cost of just making minimum payments, you can see examples here.
