The Good

  • Years of Experience
  • Debt Settlement Calculator
  • Free Consultation
  • Protection 

Years of Experience

Golden Financial Services has over 12 years of experience in the debt settlement industry, which is longer than many of its competitors.

Debt Settlement Calculator

On its website, GFS has a calculator for potential clients to see how much they could pay for debt settlement. It is one of the few companies in debt settlement that offers a tool like this. GFS also has information in Spanish on its website that is easy to find.

Free Consultation

Because Golden Financial Services only offers its services in select states, the company offers a free phone consultation where a staff member will asses the financial status of the caller to determine qualification.

Protection

At Golden Financial Services all settlements are protected by an attorney.

The Bad

  • No Accreditations
  • Scalability
  • Lack of Clarity

No Accreditations

The most important negative aspect to highlight about GFS is that it lacks accreditations with the AFCC. Nation and industry-wide accreditations such as these help keep debt settlement companies on top of federal laws and best practices.

Scalability

GFS is also a smaller debt relief company. The company employs between 11-50 employees, and there is no mention of a CEO, president, or chairperson anywhere on its website. This mainly concerns us because we don't know the credentials of who is running the business. We like to see companies be transparent with this information.

Lack of Clarity

From looking at Golden Financial Services' website, it is difficult to determine which services the company offers and which ones it simply consults on. The company does not disclose pricing information, minimum debt amount, or state availability. The only way to find out is to call the company and request a free consultation or ask for clarification. Additionally, some portions of the company website are difficult to navigate and do not appear to function as intended or as you would think. 

The Bottom Line

Golden Financial Services is experienced and offers free consultations to interested consumers. However, the company is not well accredited and does not provide a lot of important information on its website. For this reason, we recommend learning about more credible debt settlement companies.

    They offered me a student loan consolidation for my federal loans and cut my payment from $710 down to $59 per month. They resolved my private student loans and included credit repair for free. Its just unbelievable the results. Thank you
