Markets go up and come back down again. Investors watch the activity and look for trends and forecasts to turn their dollars into riches. Though the details of the markets may not be necessary for everyone, a good understanding of everyday finances is needed to ensure your home, your bank account and your additional assets are protected as you go about your business. In reality, most Americans have a lack of understanding about how debt works, leading to the ever growing number of people finding themselves in financial distress.
According to the Federal Trade Commission, the rise of the debt settlement industry is a direct result of consumer debt increase in the U.S. over the past two decades. As Americans find themselves unable to meet their financial obligations and manage their debt, debt resolution firms have emerged to assist both the debtors and the creditors.
Debt resolution firms are, by their very nature, reactive – offering assistance once the consumer is in trouble.
