When potential clients call Century Support Services, they are given a free consultation.

Clients are required to set up a trust account with an FDIC insured financial institution to accumulate enough funds to begin the negotiation process. Those who qualify for the settlement option will pay about 68 percent of the original debt including all service fees.

- Limited industry experience – the company only began in 2012
- No mention of a money back guarantee found
- No mention of who the CEO or President is on their site
