“Susan was a sweetheart from the time I contacted Debthelper. She took a listing of my debts and info on them. Soon I was set up with an account and she even set it up to be deducted from my checking account. She was Johnny on the spot with help to understand the process. She stopped all the collector calls as well. She was my ROCK. She kept in touch with me thru out the process. What a blessing she was. It was so easy and I found peace of mind. I am now debt-free from credit cards. I want to encourage anyone that has this kind of debt to call them and ask for Susan she will be there for you. Great job Susan” – dabbydawn
