My advice - really write out what you are going to say (make a dialogue flow chart for yourself) before you speak to creditors. know your story and stick to it. Anticipate them asking about your situation, have an answer. Anticipate rudeness, stay calm. Use Mandy's advice and leverage the power of time. Insist settlement is the only viable option for you at this time. You can do it. I did with the help of this book. Good luck!
Best of luck,
Well-organized, concise, easy to follow, and based on the real world- not theory. The very best how-to book would also be contemporary with up-to-date examples of success.
Mandy Akridge's book meets all these criterion, imo.
While I had done some online research into debt settlement, the advice you find can be contradictory, the more you study it. Also, most people giving advice on website forums I suspect haven't really negotiated any debt at all.
Instead, they're often assuming what should work, with no personal experience to back it up.
However, Akridge shows you recent actual credit card letters from her negotiated settlements. And the amount she was able to save is huge. Its all in black and white.
The author walks you through the process step-by-step. You end up knowing what to expect, and what issues you'll face. To me, there were many pearls of wisdom and things that just plain made sense. She doesn't seem to sugar-coat anything, but also leaves you feeling pretty optimistic about settling your debts in this manner.
Value-wise I just don't see how you can go wrong. Debt settlement companies charge a fortune, (I know, I looked into it) other professional services are even more expensive. This is literally a `steal' by comparison.
I'm now convinced you can settle your debts by following this book and I'm glad the author shared her personal experiences.
