As the economy continues to struggle, more Americans are seeking assistance through non-profit credit counseling services. Over the past few years, we’ve seen the people reaching out for help change dramatically. No longer is credit card debt a symptom of the young. Now, seniors are among the most indebted in the nation. With the stress of debt looming over their shoulder, people instinctively reach out for help. However, most fail to research the reputation of the organization they connect with. Cambridge was recently featured on our local ABC affiliate to discuss how you can find an agency that will put your interests first. I encourage you to view Vetting Debt Counseling Services for tips about working with a reliable credit counseling agency.
