Debt Warriors Retracts Story
In a recent article, I posted a blog entry criticizing a website called Debt Warriors for publishing an article entitled "7 Facts That The Average Bankruptcy Lawyer Will Not Tell Debtors". Author J. Carlton Ford also owns the Debt Warriors website, which sells "coaching" videos for nearly $50 that purport to teach consumers how to negotiate settlements with creditors.
I engaged Mr. Ford in direct conversation via his website, where he initially defended his position and proceeded to attack my own motives. However, he has since removed his article without further comment. He never did explain the basis for some of his false claims such as how he arrived at the erroneous conclusion that Congress had eliminated Chapter 11 from the Bankruptcy Code.
When confronted with the facts, Debt Warriors chose to turn and run from the battlefield. Mr. Ford's actions speak loudly regarding the value of his "coaching" services.
If you are experiencing debt problems, don't pay someone to teach you debt settlement techniques that you can learn for free with a simple Google search. If you are in over your head, consult a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys for assistance. If you live in Southern California, please contact us for a free consultation.
