Debt consolidation advice

Get debt consolidation advice before taking on new debt.

When you're desperate to pay off your debts, the claims of debt consolidation companies can seem pretty attractive. But before you sign the papers to take out a new debt consolidation loan, it's important to get some debt consolidation advice from a credit counselor. There are a wide variety of debt consolidation options, and debt consolidation advice from a financial professional can help you sort out the good options from the money-making scams.
