I think it's a scam. it sounds all too easy and too good to be true.Isn't it Kevin Trudeau who's behind all that hoopla?

You're right. This is actually a project by TV salesman Kevin Trudeau. He sells his book "Debt Cures They Don't Want You To Know About" by means of TV infomercials.This guy's past is a little shady--I did some research on this guy, and apparently the FTC has filed a lot of cases against him for making fraudulent claims on lots of products. Like a couple years ago he sold a dietary supplement that claimed could heal cancer, and he did the marketing of his product thru his infomercials. Sadly a lot of people bought his crap. He ended up being banned by the FTC for selling items on infomercials.I find it odd how he's managed to still sell stuff even if he's been banned.

you must be mistaken, they seem to be a very formidable company, they can actually wipe out as much as 50% from the total debt amount. i think they are worth the try

Have you personally tried their services, java & chips? Could you tell us more about them?They are under the business name "Debt Specialists" and do not have BBB nor TASC listings. Well, there is a BBB listing under that name, but it appears that the company is out of business.Smells fishy if you ask me.

Purple Cow is right, the DebtSpecialists have no recorded listing on the Better Business Bureau; they may also be just merely an online company, as they have no existing address or corporate contact information--just a website and a toll-free number.We can actually help you out with any financial troubles that you may have. What you can do is fill out a form on, and you'll be connected with a qualified provider. The service is free so you won't have to worry about anything.

So debt free as seen on tv should be scraped out of the consumers list of potential debt settlement company. A legitimate business has to have a physical address and working contact numbers, and not, as Karess has mentioned just a website and a toll free number.

I agree consumers should be wary of anything that sounds like a quick fix when it comes to their finances. Debt free as seen on TV or anything that is being sold on tv should always be tested or investigated. Remember that if it's too good to be probably is.Eliminating debt or even just reducing it--is never easy and is often not that quick.

Anything seen on tv these days should be viewed as something scripted and magnified - debt free as seen on TV should be no exception --or especially it, as it involves money.
