As economic times in the USA get worse more and more people are seeking advice on their financial problems. The web is full of information on how to get out of debt, but beware… a lot of the information out there is designed to sell you products or sell services.
Glenn Sargent of independent Debt counseling web site Debt Helper USA, said that people should be vigilant when seeking debt help online.
Sargent said ”There are loads of unscrupulous websites out there who are not interested in finding a person the correct solution. They want to instead offer what will make them the most money, to the detriment of the person thy are supposedly helping”
Sargent has run his Debt Help website for over a year now and receives hundreds of e-mails per month from people wanting to know the answers to their debt questions.
“I take the questions from everyday people and give the honest answers on the site. I hope by posting them online, they will assist many people in the same situation.”
