does this scare anyone?
a debt counseling commercial on t.v.







the small print says: debt freedom ministries or something like this.



does anyone know anything about faith-based initiatives as they relate to debt counseling services and how this ties in with the new bk legislation?

1. I've seen some here..
In Birmingham, some of the "debt counselors" are Xtian groups masquerading as consumer credit counselors and yes, it is frightening. By and large, I expect they tell their "clients" to buck up and pay it all back.
