So what is this debt settlement everyone talks about? This is the process of contacting your creditors and asking them the lowest amount they are willing to charge you in case you agree to repay the entire debt amount to them.
Remember that most of your debt is interest accrued and late fees for late payments.
The company mostly waives these charges and agrees to a flat amount you might pay them to be debt free once again.
One individual came into a large amount of cash and contacted the credit card company and informed them that he was in a position to repay the card bill.
However, he was not in a position to repay the whole amount but would pay a substantial amount if they agreed to close the account and give him a full and final receipt for the card account.
Now, the actual bill was over $9000 and this included a large amount in interest alone.
The credit card company agreed to waive most of the interest and charge the client just $6000 to settle the debt.
The client agreed and the made the payment and the company closed the account.
This is typical case of debt settlement.
