Who Are You Gong To Call? - Debt-busters

Recommended Posts

Wow, impressive how piss poor some government services really can be. This is surely dis-service and appalling performance beyond the call of duty.

City debt-busters slated for helping only two out of red

MICHAEL BLACKLEY

A SCOTTISH Executive debt-advice service which was launched in a blaze of publicity has helped just two people out of the red in Edinburgh, it was revealed today.

New figures show that since being launched in November 2004, the Debt Arrangement Scheme (DAS) has succeeded in tackling a mere £14,583 of the Capital's spiralling personal debt.

This is despite there being six approved money advisers for the scheme in Edinburgh - more than any other Scottish council area apart from Fife, which also has six.

Well maybe people who are in serious debt just aren't as stupid as we think they are. This no doubt would have supported the much trumpeted change to get Voluntary Agreements. These are the biggest rip-off. The companies that set them up charge a hefty fee, and then a person entering into one might successfully pay for 3 years and then be one payment late, and they will loose the lot. There is no flexibility whatsoever. Better going bankrupt in the first instance.
