Porque Elejir DebtCare?

DebtCare Canada es una Empresa consultora de crédito, cuyo objetivo se basa en ayudar a todos aquellos abrumados por deudas. No somos síndicos de quiebra. Los síndicos dicen mantener un rol neutral entre usted y su acreedor, pero su responsabilidad es la de maximizar la cantidad que usted paga a sus acreedores. Además, ellos cobran un porcentaje de lo que el deudor (usted) le paga al acreedor. Por lo contrario, DebtCare Canada actúa a su favor, con el objeto de asegurar que usted obtenga los mejores resultados posibles, mediante la utilización de los programas del Gobierno Federal y otras soluciones financieras disponibles a todos los ciudadanos canadienses.

Hemos ayudado miles de canadienses a comenzar a vivir libre de deuda – Permítanos ayudarlo!
