As we caution consumers to remember the lessons of the past economic downturn, Freedom Financial Network continues to serve as the leading source to help tens of thousands get out of debt.
San Mateo, Calif. (PRWEB) October 15, 2014
Freedom Financial Network (FFN), the largest negotiator of consumer debt in the nation, reports results for the third quarter of the year that include resolution of $223.5 million of debt for clients.
The results represent an increase of more than 10 percent over the second quarter of the year. During the third quarter of 2014, FFN negotiated resolutions on 39,603 individual creditor accounts, up nearly 10 percent over the previous quarter. In the process, the company helped 26,095 clients, up 7.3 percent over the second quarter. The debt negotiation results equate to negotiating $2.43 million of debt each day throughout the quarter, or $101,222 each hour.
While the economy has continued to improve, consumers added debt faster than their income increased last quarter, says Andrew Housser, co-founder and CEO of FFN, citing figures from the Federal Reserve and National Retail Federation. “As we caution consumers to remember the lessons of the past economic downturn, Freedom Financial Network continues to serve as the leading source to help tens of thousands get out of debt.”
To support its increasing business, FFN continues to add staff. Now employing more than 700, the company has nearly 110 open sales, negotiation, customer service, loan officer, underwriting, analytics and software engineering positions in its Tempe (Ariz.) and San Mateo (Calif.) offices.
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 resolve their unsecured debt, often in 24 to 48 months.
