Not all the creditors/debt collectors agree to trim down the outstanding balances, interests, and fees payable by the consumer.
Consumers working with the debt relief companies can still be sued by the creditors/collection agencies.
Debt relief services may have a diminishing effect on the creditworthiness of the consumer. The total outstanding balance may increase as the additional fees get accrued.
The overall amount saved by the consumer through the debt relief services is considered as taxable income by the IRS.
