Debt settlement is like a coat of many colors.
2009-06-20 22:27:00
One size doesn't fit all when it comes to dealing with debt. Debts are incurred in all different ways, and by all different kinds of people, and so resolving problems created by debt requires a creative approach.I come across people who incur debt -- too much debt, or debt at the wrong time -- all the time in my day job; I'm a consumer lawyer, remember, and people call me all the time for help with their mortgages, credit cards, and other debts. These are people like you and me, people who borrowed money for school or to buy a house or a car or got hit with medical debts or lost their job or who got divorced and had their ex refuse to pay the support they owed... people who in one way or another need help with their debts.Most people calling me are calling to ask about bankruptcy, but that's not the only option they should consider. There's all kinds of debt settlement solutions available, ranging from a simple debt consolidation loan to debt forgiveness to payment plans and ...

Afraid of Losing Business Due To Structured Settlement Transparency Initiat
2008-12-16 01:51:00
It has come to this author's attention that there are one or two structured settlement brokers, settlement planners who have told one of our sources that they will "turn it over to their lawyers" IF they lose any business over the Matter of Honor Project, a grass roots structured settlement transparency initiative in the structured settlement industry that is designed to improve confidence in lawyers, tort victims, judges, insurers, regulators and other stakeholders who benefit or are involved in the establishment of structured settlements. Factoring broker Rhonda Bentzen, of Bentzen Funding Solutions, made such a threat last December when this project started. Bentzen of course had just disclosed to the world that 90% of her clientele was on the take and that the majority of her clientele were settlement professionals. Ms. Bentzen followed this nugget up by trying to defend the taking of kickbacks by structured settlement brokers and settlement planners whic...

Sapient and Explorologist reach a settlement agreement
2008-08-04 20:31:00
Sapient and Explorologist Settle Lawsuit Explorologist Ltd. and an online critic have settled their legal battle over a YouTube video challenging Uri Geller's claims about his mental powers. EFF and Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis, LLP, represent Brian Sapient, who uploaded an excerpt from a documentary that critiqued Geller's performances and abilities to YouTube. Explorologist claimed the clip infringed its copyrights. More information about the case is available here.  Here is a previous post from Sapient on the court case. The agreement should allow the healthy debate about the existence of 'supernatural powers' to continue without interference. As part of the legal settlement, Explorologist has agreed to license the disputed footage under a non-commercial Creative Commons license, preempting future legal battles over the fair use of the material. A monetary settlement was also reached.  
How to make Debt Settlement
2008-07-02 07:30:00
Truly, once a debtor begins to take the debt settlement approach, he will seek the forgiveness of the creditor so that the latter will agree to coming up with terms which will benefit both parties, such as lesser or total relief from the payment of interest rates and / or late payment fines, fulfillment of the main amount only, to deduction of the main amount by as much as as much as sixty-five percent.The question most people ask about debt settlement seems to be this: will creditors accept the said terms ?The answer is: of course. Creditors would rather recover what they have given - despite condition which may be unfavorable for them - rather than witness the amount the borrowed down the drain, like, for example when the debtor travels to another country, goes underground, or begins to seek a declaration of personal bankruptcy.Debt settlement is an often neglected debt relief option, which comes as a surprise considering the fact that it's one of the most practical and one the e...

What Is A "Structured Settlement License"?
2008-06-07 21:59:00
On a number of structured settlement industry/settlement planning industry web sites it is advertised that one or more individuals are a "licensed structured settlement broker" There are structured settlement brokers who hold life insurance broker's licenses , or agent's licenses for life insurance (in most states that includes non variable annuities) with carrier appointments, in the various states where they solicit annuity or insurance business. There is, however NO SUCH THING as a "structured settlement license". Those that place structured settlements are required to possess a valid life insurance license as one of the prerequsities to receiving an appointment from the life insurance companies who write structured settlement annuities. A number of individuals and  companies that purchase structured settlement payment rights deceptively try to position themselves as a "structured settlement broker".

Pre-Settlement Funding Nothing To Do With Structured Settlements! DealFlow
2008-06-05 17:17:00
The "structured settlement illiterati" at Deal Flow Media served up more digital diarrhea with a story about pre-settlement funding on the company's online Structured Settlements Wire. It  SHOULD be obvious to readers that Pre-Settlement Funding HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH structured settlements. Pre-Settlement Funding is a form of cash advance available to tort victims with choking bills, whose cases are still pending, where specialty finance companies (like Law Cash, Magnolia Funding  provide non recourse funding to tort victims. If the plaintiffs win or settle their case the finance company has a lien on the proceeds. Non recourse essentially means that if you lose your case you owe the finance company nothing. Due to the risk involved for the finance company a large effective rate of interest (as high as 2.5% per month) is charged. Thus modest amounts advanced can grow to substantial amounts if there is a long period of time between the advance and the time the...

Getting Out Of Debt Faster Through Debt Settlement Posted By : William Blak
2008-06-04 11:42:00
Debt settlement is one of the simplest tools that can be used to reduce debt balances for a borrower. In essence, debt settlement means contacting a creditor and settling on a reduced loan balance. If a consumer owes $18,000 in credit card debt and has other obligations that make it impossible to make timely payments, debt settlement is a very attractive alternative to declaring bankruptcy. Personal finance is the application of the principles of finance to the monetary decisions of an individual or family unit. It addresses the ways in which individuals or families obtain, budget, save and spend monetary resources over time, taking into account various financial risks and future life events. Components of personal finance might include checking and savings accounts, credit cards and consumer loans, investments in the stock market, retirement plans, social security benefits, insurance policies, and income tax management.
Total Loss Settlement Tips
2008-06-03 23:40:00
1. Release your vehicle to the insurance company immediately their request. This simple step will save you a lot of money in storage charges. If the insurance company is storing the vehicle, there are normally no charges, but if you leave the vehicle at a shop or tow yard, you will be responsible for the storage charges and they will be subtracted from your settlement. Many people have concerns over this, but don't worry, you are the owner of the vehicle, and the company can't do anything to it except hold it until your property claim is resolved.2. Request documentation on the calculated value of your vehicle. This will be one of a few different things, depending on the company. Most companies use either "CCC" or "ADP" to evaluate the market value of your vehicle. If the company doesn't use one of these programs, then they will most likely utilize N.A.D.A. split value as a starting point for your vehicle's value. Remember, no matter what the initial offer is, you can negotiate ...

Breaking Down the HUD-1 Settlement Statement
2008-05-27 23:24:00
The Settlement Statement, often referred to as the ?HUD-1?, is a document that contains a detailed breakdown of the closing costs apportioned between the buyer and seller of property. Typically, the closing agent (often a representative from the title company), gathers the pertinent information, completes the Settlement Statement and disperses the required funds once the buyer and seller have certified the accuracy of the statement by signing it. The first page of the Settlement Sheet is broken down into a summary of the borrower?s (buyer) transaction on the left side and a summary of the seller?s transaction on the right. The second page is divided into those costs that are ?paid from borrower?s funds at settlement? and those costs that are ?paid from seller?s funds at settlement?. If buyer, seller and title agent agree that the statement is true and accurate, all parties sign and date the sheet toward the bottom of page two. The following key sections of the HUD-1 should be t...

Viatical life settlement: a flexible financial solution
2008-05-24 06:28:00
Since everybody dreams to live a contended and financially free life, life insurance policies can prove to the best solution. Basically, life insurance policies refer to a long-term investment that gets matured after a certain time period. This time period may vary from 30 years to 35 years. However, life insurance policies can provide the policy holder with long-term financial security but sometimes, it may become really burdensome. Life insurance policies are not suitable for making securing long term financial benefits but what if the policy holder is retired and is suffering from any life threatening disease? Since people, who are retired from their job, fulfill all their routine and emergency requirements with their pension and other savings, any major financial requirement can disturb their budget. In such situation, paying expensive premiums of their life insurance policy can increase their burden. However, with viatical life settlement such senior policyholders can meet all ...

Is Debt Settlement Superior To Debt Consolidation?
2008-05-23 04:49:00
It has always been a matter of competition for both the debt consolidators and debt settlement companies to prove themselves over each other. But somehow debt settlement has managed to stay ahead in this race of oligopolies.Debt consolidation programs give you a loan to help you manage your way out of debt by allowing you to pay off your earlier creditors. You are charged interest on it and at times even to your earlier creditors. Your principle amount remains the same, but you are still kept far away from clearing your debt.Debt settlement, on the other hand, is your rescue ship if you are drifting toward bankruptcy. If you are already in bad standing with your creditors and your credit rating is low due to a lack of payment history, then joining a consumer debt relief group can be the best way to modify your debt to income ratio and stabilize your account ratings.Read full articleResources for Debt Consolidation----------------No-w playing: The Academy Is... - Bulls In Br...
