The Good

  • Only Charge 20 Percent of Debt 
  • No Cancellation Fee

Only Charge 20 Percent of Debt 

Like most reputable companies, FDR does not charge any upfront cost for their service, and their overall cost is a reasonable 20 percent of the debt enrolled in their service, which is slightly lower than average at 18 to 25 percent.

No Cancellation Fee

They claim to offer a free consultation over the phone and charge no cancellation fee for discontinuing their service.

The Bad

  • No Longer Accepting New Clients
  • Lacking Accreditations
  • State Availability Not Clear
  • Customer Service

No Longer Accepting New Clients

Again, we feel it's critical to point out that FDR is no longer accepting new clients to their service.

Lacking Accreditations

The company also isn't accredited with the AFCC or the FTC, which calls into question their business practices and commitment to the debt settlement industry as a whole.

State Availability Not Clear

It's also important to note that there is no list of states in which they operate and they don't accept cases smaller than $10,000.

Customer Service

It is difficult to reach customer service.

The Bottom Line

Franklin Debt Relief is no longer accepting new clients, but even if they were, we would not recommend them. Their pricing is attractive, but their lack of customer support, questionable service area, and lack of industry credentials make them undesirable.
