Don O’Brien of the Better Business Bureau regional office in Quincy joined KWIXLand This Morning last week to discuss the difference between credit repair and debt consolidation. O’Brien notes credit repair companies asking for money up front is a major red flag.
O’Brien says credit repair companies saying they will help pay a person’s bills is another red flag. O’Brien details the difference between credit repair and debt consolidation companies.
O’Brien says those who have been ripped off by these companies can contact the BBB or your respective state attorney general’s office.
