To thwart debt-relief scams, contact a proven bankruptcy attorney

It is likely that some — perhaps many — of our readers across New Mexico have been on the receiving end of scam-oriented pitches promising to help them with financial challenges relating to credit card debt, student loans, medical outlays, mortgage exactions and other matters.

It is a sad and often confirmed reality that fraudulent behavior regarding promises in that realm is on the rise. Indeed, a national survey recently released by a tandem team of consumer protection groups states that fraud schemes centered on credit repair and debt relief are unquestionably increasing. Moreover, they are a major source of frustration for many individuals and families that truly do need financial help.

For good reasons, consumers looking for assistance in helping resolve serious financial problems need to be wary of many debt-relief firms that make big promises and have no duty of loyalty other than to their own company executives.

Financial struggles needn’t be unsolvable and permanent. Indeed, we note on the Bankruptcy Representation page of our website at the Albuquerque law firm of Giddens & Gatton Law,amp; P.C., that “there are viable options for debt relief,” with a Chapter 7 or other form of bankruptcy filing often bringing about truly meaningful help. A hard-pressed individual or family might reasonably want to consider consulting with a legal professional who is always guided by the principle of putting clients first and advocating in their best interests at all times.
