Columbia, MD (PRWEB) March 5, 2009
ClearOne Advantage a premier debt settlement company focusing on superior product knowledge and customer service while offering the leading options in debt settlement announces that is has been certified as an accredited member of The Association of Settlement Companies (TASC). The accreditation audit was performed by BSI Management Services, a leading provider of certification and training services management systems.
"We are proud to be an accredited member of such a prominent organization whose interests are so clearly consumer," said Tomas Gordon, CEO, "TASC's goals to promote good practice in the debt settlement industry and protect the interests of consumer debtors are exactly what ClearOne Advantage stands for. We worked hard to be recognized as a compliant debt settlement company and extremely excited to reach this goal!"
TASC's™ goals are to promote good practice in the debt settlement industry, protect the interests of consumer debtors, and lobby on behalf of debt settlement companies on the federal and state level. Debt settlement companies act on behalf of consumer debtors to help them clear their debts. They do this by entering into direct negotiations with creditors in order to facilitate the repayment of debts. In return for their services, debt settlement companies are generally paid a fee by the consumer debtor. In order to avoid any hint of impropriety, TASC™ members do not handle, manage, or otherwise control their client's funds.
Membership of TASC™ is reliant upon debt settlement companies being able to demonstrate that they comply with the standards set out in the TASC™ Bylaws.
The Bylaws have been developed in consultation with a number of debt settlement companies, discussions with different states' legislators, and major lenders. The aim of the Bylaws, and that of TASC™, is to encourage debt settlement companies to provide services of the highest standards to ensure the public and the credit industry's confidence.
