Why JFP is legit
Journalists are rightly skeptical about anything that sounds suspiciously too good to be true. So heres a journalist explaining it...
How JFP works
•Call the number below. Youll be connected to a certified credit counselor at Consolidated Credit.
•Set aside 15-20 minutes for a free debt analysis. Your personal financial details remain confidential.
•Hear about your options. Your counselor is obligated by law to recommend the best free and fee-driven debt solutions for your situation.
•Theres no obligation to do anything. You can hang up, call back later, or forget the whole thing.
•Pay less. Under JFP, if you qualify for a Debt Management Program, your fees are capped at $25 and could be less. Those fees are up to $79 for other clients.
•Save thousands. Your monthly fee which helps pay the people helping you will dwarf your monthly savings. Consolidated Credit is breaking even and even losing money on this deal.
