I'm really confused about debt consolidation!! I heard that it majorly destroys your credit because in order to put your credit cards on the plan, they must be closed, thus lowering your score considerably.
Why so many comments saying it doesn't hurt your score? Are there "credit counselors" on here trying to drum up business?

I am in the same boat 15k in debts. I didn't bother tnyrig to get a consolidation loan because I already knew I wouldn't get approved. What I did do though is go to Money Management International since I didn't want to file bankruptcy. I signed up for a debt management plan. This plan is similar to a bankruptcy in that you can't have credit cards (all accounts are closed) and you can't finance anything.The differences 1) No bankruptcy on your credit report for 7 or more years.2) Completely optional. You don't have to include every creditor and your creditors don't have to accept any proposal. Because of this the 1st month or two can be a bit hard on the nerves.3) You can end the plan anytime. but your creditors will come demanding payment in full immediately on everything owed and don't count on them being willing to make a deal.4) If you miss a payment on the debt management plan your creditors can (and probably will) cancel their participation if they wish.
Your personal details (name, email address and phone number) will be delivered to the company advertised on the Creditmagic after ve agreed to go for the counseling session by filling out the no-obligation form. However, it is your discretion to accept or reject their services.
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.
