This has probably been mentioned but I don't see it. The IRS is getting interested in what the credit counselors are doing, especially the ones who take a "non-profit" position.

I used one for three years and paid down much debt but I also wound up paying them about $50/mo. and more in hidden charges that I cannot retrieve. I lots over $2,000 when I ended my relationship with them.

I am now paying down the debt that is left the way I want to pay it and having enough to live on. I can make better decisions about my money and I'm sure you can.

Good Luck.
