Creditors often sell unsecured debt to collection agencies for pennies on the dollar after just a few months of non-payment. Debt collection agencies don't care about why the debt isn't being paid, and will often act ruthlessly in their attempts to earn a profit off of people who simply can't afford the bill.

These tactics often work, because most debtors already feel bad about being delinquent on their bills. Debt collectors may try to make debtors feel like they are failures in life, or possibly threaten them with lawsuits. Some falsely assert that filing for bankruptcy will cause them to lose everything.

Our Olympia bankruptcy lawyers can help you put a stop the constant harassment, petition the court to discharge your debt, and help you start over again financially. Debt collectors hate us because we educate people about bankruptcy, and offer them a proven way to resolve ongoing debt issues.

Filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy is like hitting the financial reset button
