Debt Mitigation & Settlement
Debt Mitigation and Settlement is a process in which both debtor and creditor settle or resolve a debt for less than what is owed. If negotiated properly, a debtor’s debt can be quickly, and in some cases, significantly reduced.
To ensure a successful settlement is brought to fruition, funds need to be readily available to pay the settlement amounts as negotiated by Credit Masters and its Affiliates on behalf of its client(s). Since agreed upon settlements must be paid, either in one lump sum payment or in some cases monthly payments, the funds are held in a client-owned, special purpose F.D.I.C. (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) insured account to assure an expedient transfer. In the unlikely event that Credit Masters or its Affiliates are unable to negotiate with a particular creditor to settle a client’s debt, the account would be dropped from the program and there will be no cost to you.
While the successful completion of the Credit Masters Financial Program will ultimately result in the resolution of debt owed and an improved debt-to-income ratio following continued financial responsibility, there are associated risks with this type of program such as; the possibility of lawsuits by creditors, a credit score that will be negatively affected, and the debt that is settled will be identified on a client’s credit report as “paid as agreed” or “settled for a lesser amount” rather than simply “paid in full”. While these concerns are valid, we believe that for some consumers, the risks associated with choosing an alternate solution other than debt settlement could potentially have a greater detrimental affect on their long-term financial stability and well being.*
