Beware of debt repair scams

This is just your friendly reminder to not pay a "debt repair" company a dime. Anything they will charge you for, you can get here for free. 

 

Do not listen to anyone trying to sell you "their program that worked" on here either.

 

Now someone pass me a beer and break out the slip and slide

If someone tries to drain my FICO I will go a mix of terminator and Predator on them.... while using my slip and slide and drinking my beer. 

 

There is a basis for a good movie!

Re: Beware of debt repair scams

I agree that anything they can do you can actually do on your own, but I don't get the hate.  If someone has the money, but not the time, then why not pay someone to do the grunt work for you?

 

For the record, I've never hired anyone and did all my repair my self.
