Let’s just set the table right now…As a consumer YOU HAVE RIGHTS!! Now I am vehemently opposed to turning the CCCS Blog into a big sales tool so please allow me this loan transgression (BTW that was a pun…you can laugh now). There are companies that will promise to “Clean” or “Erase” your credit problems. If it was that easy, everyone would be doing it and it wouldn’t be a scam!! Oh look…there I said it. It’s a scam!!! Take a look at the link below… http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/credit/cre13.shtm
It just kills me to see people get fooled by these parasites. Life is hard enough without people taking advantage of each other. WARNING: this is the sales part of the show. If you want help talk to us first!! Even if you don’t like what we have to say, that’s ok. It isn’t going to cost you a dime to at least hear us out. We can help but we are not going to knock on your door or c
all you in the middle of your Mac and Cheese and Chocolate Cake. You have to call us… At the very least educate yourself. Go to the Oklahoma Department of Consumer Credit website at http://www.ok.gov/okdocc/
You never walk into a gun fight with a knife. Be prepared and remember…YOU HAVE RIGHTS!!!!
