Debt Rx, a subsidiary of Debt Settlement Group, is one of the longest standing debt settlement companies in the nation with 17 years of business under their belt. Their debt negotiators have helped numerous Americans settle millions of dollars to date in unsecured debt types.
Debt Rx and the Debt Settlement Group have been in the debt settlement business for quite some time having established themselves as experts in debt settlement cases. This is because they have taken the time to build trusted relationships with many of the largest collection agencies in the nation, and pay them thousands of dollars each month to secure those relationships.
A free phone consultation is offered where professionals will determine qualification and assess the financial status of potential applicants. Those who are ideal candidates for their settlement services are those with a financial hardship, such as loss of income, disability, job loss, and divorce and are unable to make monthly payments to creditors. They also offer services to Spanish speaking Americans providing a staff fully fluent in the language.
During a more in-depth consultation, representatives will go over and discuss the benefits to each option in debt resolution including:
- Debt Settlement
- Reducing Payments
- Credit Counseling
- Private Financing
- Corporate Workout
- Home Rescue
- Consolidation Loans
While the Debt Settlement Group provides a broad range of services, the Debt RX site is aimed specifically toward candidates interested in settlement services. This counseling service opens the door for financially confused consumers to help in making a secure decision on which method to take when resolving their debts and financial obligations.
Prices vary greatly and are all determined on an individual basis. Pricing factors include the amount of total qualifying debt enrolled into the settlement program, duration of the program term, and the candidate’s state of residence. On average, clients can expect to pay 22% of the total amount of debt enrolled, although some states mandate a lesser amount, such as 17%.
Highlights to this company include:
- 17 years industry experience
- Broad range of services
- Millions of dollars settled
- A+ BBB rating
- $5,000 minimum amount of debt
Although this is one of the longest standing settlement companies in America boasting 17 years of experience, we have a some concerns about company transparency, including their lack of AFCC and IAPDA accreditations.
Upon calling the number on the Debt RX site for a consultation we were connected to an automated message informing us they were the Debt Settlement Group and have saved our number to call us back when it was convenient for them. We have yet to receive a call. On the other hand, Debt Settlement Group answered us in a timely fashion and provided answers to questions no apparent on either company website. What we would like to see is some company transparency as to who they are and what name they operate under, along with information on company fees, or even a ballpark range.
Another concern is a strictly limited 10-minute phone consultation as explained on the Debt RX website. A more in-depth consultation may be required to look further into collection notices, specific bills and loan agreements, before enrolling in the company’s services.
The company provides few tools and resources to help consumers become financially independent which demonstrates lack of responsibility when it comes to their clients’ financial maintenance.
