PostHeaderIcon What are some good debt consolidation companies?

I just recently pulled my credit report and have some charge off’s that I would really like to pay off in order to increase my credit score. I am very concerned with companies that try to scam you and you end up paying more in the end. I got myself into some trouble in college with opening up accounts and of course, not being able to pay them off. Now that I am in the working world I am looking for a good, reputable company to go with so that I can take care of some of the debt that I have as well as increase my credit score so that I am able to get better interest rates. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have spoken with and I am a little apprehensive because I am not sure if they are reputable and don’t want to sign on the dotted line yet without knowing the good ones from the bad.

    Remember this when it comes to hiring a credit repair company

    A credit bureau will not remove accurate negative information from your credit report before the legal time period has expired. Therefore, do not believe anyone who claims they can get negative information removed from your credit report faster than is legally required.

    There are no “loopholes” or laws that credit repair companies can use to get correct information off your credit report.

    No credit repair company can do anything you can’t do for yourself. It is impossible for a third party to make changes in your file if the facts have been correctly reported. There are individuals and companies that claim they can fix a bad credit file. This is not the case. If a file includes accurate, yet negative information about your credit history, this information cannot be changed. Information will only be changed when your file contains an inaccuracy.

    The only way to rectify a poor credit rating is to adopt sound credit practices for a period of time.

    If all of your outstanding debt has been charged off, then you don’t need to consolidate. Why consolidate debt that has already gone to collections?

    You should identify debts that are less than 4 years old and try to resolve the debt yourself. You can either pay them off in full or you can negotiate a settlement. A pay for deletion agreement is a good option.

    The easiest method of getting a debt consolidation loan is to utilize the equity of your home. Equity of your home is calculated and determined by the difference in the amount you have paid and the amount you owe. If the amount you have paid is more than the amount due, you can use it as collateral. This allows you to borrow money on lower interest rates. Besides, you also get tax benefit on this type of loan. Consult your tax advisor before opting for this loan.
