There is no reason for someone who owes $100,000 to pay $15,000 in negotiation fees
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 10, 2011
Consumers and small business owners are negotiating with their creditors and settling their own debt obligations without the need for professional third-party assistance, according to ZipDebt.com, one of the nation's leading providers of self-help financial coaching for struggling consumers.
America’s economic recession has pushed millions of individuals toward bankruptcy with massive levels of debt. As small businesses fail and previously high-income households face the new jobless environment, credit card debt loads of $100,000 or more have become much more common. For people with such high debt balances, formal bankruptcy often means filing under Chapter 13, which can be a difficult five-year process that entails partial or full repayment of the debts. Debt settlement through creditor negotiation provides many of those debtors with a realistic alternative to bankruptcy.
According to Charles J. Phelan, founder and President of ZipDebt.com, consumers and small business owners can avoid Chapter 13 bankruptcy if they educate themselves about negotiating compromise solutions with their creditors. "Many of the people who come to us have very large debt balances, and none of the usual ‘one-size-fits-all’ debt solutions will work for them," Phelan says. "We teach people a process called Fast-Track Debt Settlement™. It has the most successful track record compared to any other approach to debt settlement."
Phelan recommends the “do-it-yourself with coaching” approach to debt negotiation and settlement because it gives consumers complete control over the process. Instead of paying thousands in fees to a professional firm, consumers can apply 100% of their available resources to eliminating problem debt. "There is no reason for someone who owes $100,000 to pay $15,000 in negotiation fees," Phelan says. “We’ve taught thousands of people how to settle their own debts, and it’s a much faster process without the stiff fees.”
