DS Financial Services has over 20 years of industry experience. The company has offices in Florida and New York. The company offers a basic website with limited information on their services, pricing, and company. They offer consumers and businesses debt settlement services and claim they can settle these debts for varying amounts in two to three years. However, we have concern about the company’s lack of transparency.

The Good

  • No fees when you sign up
  • Over 20 years of experience in the industry

A Different Approach

DS Financial Services conducts business slightly differently than others in the debt settlement industry. This may be good or bad depending on individual circumstances.

Most debt settlement companies will have their clients stop making payments on debts immediately after they sign up. Representatives of DSFS only take on unsecured debts that are either currently in collection or have already been declared delinquent. Then, like other companies, they offer free advice and a consultation over the phone. This is good for those who have gone delinquent and have no one else to help them.

No Trust Account

After signing up with DSFS, instead of having clients set money into a trust account, they have clients build funds on their own. The more debt you have, the less of a percentage you pay to DSFS.

The Bad

  • Transparency
  • No accreditations

Transparency

While reviewing DSFS, we ran into some transparency issues; for example, the company does not disclose any information about pricing or debt minimums on its corporate website. These are important things to know before signing on with a debt settlement company.

No Accreditations

DSFS is not accredited with the AFCC or the IAPDA. We like to see when companies have these accreditations to show they are using best industry practices.

The Bottom Line

In the end, DSFS is different than the majority of debt relief companies. They require your accounts to already be delinquent and they don’t require that you set money aside each month in a separate bank account. While this option won’t be right for most people, it’s a good option for those who have gone delinquent and do not qualify for other debt settlement programs.

However, if your accounts are currently not delinquent, we recommend choosing a company with lower fees and industry accreditations.

    A great company. DS Financial saved me just over $40K and did it with personal attention and in FAST. No big company non-sense and bad service. I even dealt directly with the owner of the company. Not bad service. Big and accredited is not always better, especially nowadays when business is purely started for profit ignoring customer service. Fully recommend DS Financial Services for any sort of consumer debt settling.
