A retainer fee (upfront) a monthy fee, settlement fee and some a % of the {saved} settled amount. I would like a list of the companies and the amts they each charge.

My husband lost his job and has gotten another but is making half of what he was. Our CC debt is over $50,000. (My husband also had colon cancer & chemo before he lost his GOOD job).

I recently signed up with Credit Solutions of America to handle my debt settlement. Now maybe the creditor I spoke to was just trying to get into my head, but I can’t seem to get past the fact that he told me I was being scammed and I would end up owing more than did to begin with and my credit would be destroyed. Is this true and is CSA reputable?

Creditors are obviously on opposing sides with the debt settlement companies so
