``My results: in 9 months I just finished settling my last account. I spent $66,293 to settle $208,435 for a savings of $142,142. My average settlement was just under 32% overall, with some as low as 10%! I couldn’t believe it was possible.``
``My advice, follow the program perfectly. Hang in there and realize you are saving at least $1000-$2000 per hour of your time. I’m serious.``
``Though I did very well, I could not have done it without Charles’ help. Our phone discussions and email communication kept me perfectly in the loop at all times. I had PEACE OF MIND knowing I had his advice in my back pocket. Patience pays off, and so does the right attitude–which Charles will give you.``

Roy's DIY Success Story

``Doing it yourself is the ticket, but you will need LOTS of advice from someone who knows and that person is Charles Phelan. The cost of his coaching will save you at least ten-fold the amount when you learn to negotiate yourself. Doing it yourself gives you a sense of empowerment that will help you through the process.``
``I was lucky to talk to Charles. It isn’t easy. This isn’t a magical wand. You have to do the work yourself, but if you follow his advice you will succeed. I have to say that I never thought I could get rid of $100,000 of debt I had just a year ago. I was drowning in it. I settled for roughly 40% of what I owed in average. Charles’ help gave me my life back. He was always available. I followed his advice religiously. He knows his stuff. Thank you, thank you Charles!!!``

Elias' DIY Success Story

``I was faced with $55,000 of credit card debt on 16 credit cards. After being laid off from my well-paying job, it was becoming extremely difficult to make the minimum payments.``
``With Charles’ coaching on how to deal with each credit card/collection agency, I was amazed at how well I was able to negotiate settlements under 50% and with many at 30%. I highly recommend using the ZipDebt method to bring back financial peace of mind and stop the endless barely living paycheck to paycheck treadmill way of life. My credit rating is already back in the good range. I can’t thank Charles enough for all the help he provided and hope others will check out the ZipDebt method to find financial peace of mind as I did.``
