FFN is providing solid, needed help for people in serious debt hardship, while maintaining its position as the industry leader.
San Mateo, Calif. (PRWEB) July 23, 2012
Freedom Financial Network (FFN) has announced results for the first quarter of the year, including resolutions on $102.3 million of debt for clients.
The largest negotiator of consumer debt in the nation achieved settlements on 18,413 individual creditor accounts for more than 14,000 clients, said Andrew Housser, co-founder and co-CEO of FDR. “That equates to settling more than a $1.1 million of debt each day, or nearly $47,000 each hour,” he added. First-quarter results show a 4 percent increase over the previous quarter in number of creditor accounts resolved.
“FFN is providing solid, needed help for people in serious debt hardship, while maintaining its position as the industry leader,” said Housser. “These results continue to provide clear indication of our company professionals’ abilities, skill and commitment to clients.”
In FFN’s Freedom Debt Relief program, consumers pay no up-front fees, and pay only those fees associated with an individual debt when FFN has resolved that debt. This practice is in accordance with the advance fee ban that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has mandated on the debt relief industry. Some companies in the industry may claim compliance with the FTC rules, but yet seek out loopholes to charge fees before they actually settle consumer debts, he explained. “FFN, however, does not charge any up-front fees under any loopholes in the FTC regulations.”
FFN is a consumer credit advocate that negotiates directly with creditors on consumers’ behalf to resolve debt balances. Offering an alternative to credit counseling, debt consolidation and bankruptcy, the company’s debt relief program helps clients who qualify for, and commit to, the program resolve their unsecured debt, often in 24 to 48 months. According to Housser, debt resolution is best suited for individuals who are carrying serious debt, who are struggling to make required minimum payments, and who would otherwise often be considering bankruptcy or credit counseling.
