What Does Freedom Debt Relief Do?

First, let’s clear the air about what Freedom Debt Relief is not. It isn’t a debt-consolidation company that rolls all your debts into one larger loan. That said, Freedom Debt Relief does work with clients who have rolled their existing debt into a consolidation loan to lower their payments.

Now, let’s talk about what Freedom Debt Relief does. It is a debt-relief company that specializes in negotiating with your creditors and find ways to reduce the amount you owe quickly. Once it lowers the amount you owe, it makes a one-time payment to eliminate the balance.

How Does Freedom Debt Relief Work?

The process for Freedom Debt Relief’s program is straightforward. There are four large steps – evaluation, customization, action and freedom – and smaller steps within each one. The steps are as follows:

  1. Evaluation
    1. You sign up for a free evaluation.
    2. You speak with a certified debt consultant.
    3. Debt consultant decides if the program would be right for you.
  2. Customization
    1. Debt consultant puts together a plan to lower your monthly payments on unsecured debt.
      1. The plan will show a monthly payment you will have to make to get your debt in control.
    2. You and the debt consultant work together to tweak the plan to fit your needs.
  3. Action
    1. You begin making monthly payments into an FDIC-insured account that you control.
      1. This account gives Freedom Debt Relief the ability to negotiate with creditors using cash on hand.
    2. Freedom Debt Relief consultants create a negotiation plan with your creditors as the account grows.
    3. Freedom Debt Relief begins negotiating with each creditor once the account reaches a target balance.
      1. Consultants work with multiple creditors at once so they can use other creditors’ settlement offers as a tool against creditors that are less willing to negotiate.
    4. Once the consultants reach a favorable settlement, they will contact you for authorization.
  4. Freedom
    1. Once the final settlement is reached and paid, all your accounts will be marked as settled in full, settled, paid, paid by settlement or settled for less than the full amount.
    2. Enjoy being free of your debt.

Can Freedom Debt Relief Fix All Debt?

The types of debt Freedom Debt Relief can help you settle include:

  • Credit card debt
  • Department store cars
  • Personal loans
  • Payday loans
  • Medical bills
  • Private student loans (on a case-by-case basis)

They promised to settle at substantial savings to me... when in fact the only reduction they secured was the equivalent of their settlement fee. In other words, they saved me NOTHING and cost me a bundle.
Run as fast and as far away from FDR as you said can! After over a year with them, the only activity on my account has been paying fees. They settled one debt at a rate barely exceeding their fees, which they collect up-front, causing my account to fall short and the deal to fall through. They never warned me I was in jeopardy of losing the settlement, and I only inadvertently found out this had happened. Since then, they have had more than enough money in the account to wrap it up again, but did nothing. I finally settled with that creditor on my own, for WAY less than FDR had negotiated. They settled another (large this time) debt, at a discount that exactly matched their fee. So I saved nothing. They have no documentation that I agreed to this settlement, yet refuse to refund the substantial fee they garnished from my dedicated account. In short, FDR is a total scam that does not try to save you any money; does not communicate; and does not even make settlement agreement documentation available to its clients. BOOOOOO!!!! Shame on them.
