Today’s Money: Debt Settlement

This morning Bob Sullivan, author of Stop Getting Ripped Off!, and I chatted with Tamron Hall about Debt Settlement. Very important information about changes in the laws that will put a stop to up-front fees and tip consumers off to what (exactly) they’re signing up for and what they should get in return. Also, the difference between Debt Settlement and Credit Counseling and how you can settle a debt yourself. Must have been interesting — my own mother said she stopped to listen rather than checking out what I looked like. And she knows all of this from being an avid reader of my books!
