Signature One Financial Review “The Get Out of Debt Guy’s Shameless Attempt to Steel Clients”

Signature One Financial Review “The Get Out of Debt Guy”

Hello again, it is time for another Signature One Financial Review. Unlike some review sites, the CFRB does not publish its reviews to attack other financial companies in order to turn their prospective clients against them while advertising competitors services on the review site. I can see how this might be a very lucrative arrangement for the review site to take but definitely one that lacks the commitment to the consumer that the CFRB is based on. Hence the reason for this Signature One Financial Review titled Signature One Financial Review “The Get Out of Debt Guy”. Like we mentioned earlier our finance company reviews are based out of our commitment to the consumer so when we see cheap shots by other review sites trying to “steer” prospective clients away from good companies by using smear techniques similar to what we see in political campaigns , well let’s just say it gets our attention. Thus the reason for this Signature One Financial Review.

Signature One Financial Review a Progressive and Consumer-Friendly Full-Service Finance Company

 

My motivation for this Signature One Financial Review started last week while I was googling some of our top-rated finance companies which is something I do from time to time to see if the finance companies have been staying true to their commitment to the consumer. When I googled Signature One Financial Review I saw an article by The Get Out of Debt Guy on Signature One Financial titled Signature One Financial Mailer Deceptive in Your Opinion? Now, this really got my attention since Signature One Financial has and still is one of our highest rated finance companies and is known as a progressive and consumer-friendly finance company.

When I read their Signature One Financial Review I was amused at the approach the Get Out of Debt Guy is using to draw consumers to their advertiser’s much of which seems to end up with one company “ Freedom Financial” or one of its affiliates. By the way, if you were to do a Google search on legal actions brought against Freedom Financial you will instantly understand that The Get Out of Debt Guy reviews are not written and published for the consumers best interest but rather as cheap shot advertising gimmick intended to smear good companies reputations and piggyback on their marketing efforts. And by the way if you really want to see something interesting try googling “The Get Out Of Debt Guy Rip Off Report” you will see numerous complaints about Steve Rhodes who is the Get Out Of Debt Guy.

Signature One Financial Review “Where`s The Beef”

So when reading the Signature One Financial Review or smear campaign published by the Get Out of Debt Guy I tried to find a solid foundation for his Signature One Financial Review but all I found was double talk. So let’s look at some bullet points in their Signature One Financial Review.

  • 1st they claim the mailer looks like a loan offer but reads like a debt settlement offer. Which is it? When I read the mailer they posted in the review it clearly stated the savings are achieved without the need for a loan.
  • 2nd they state that there is no record of Signature One Financial licensed as a lender. Signature One Financial does not promote itself as a lender but rather a full-service financial firm that connects the consumers to best firm available for the consumer’s particular needs. Sometimes it’s personal loans, retirement planning, insurance services, and debt settlement. Signature One Financial gets paid as an affiliate by the lender when doing personal loans, therefore, allowing them to work with the lender that provides the best rate and term for the consumer and does not require Signature One Financial to obtain licensing as a lender.
  • 3rd they state that Signature One Financial, LLC is not registered as a business entity in the state of California. Signature One Financial, LLC is registered as a business entity in the state of Wyoming and in California as a foreign entity doing business in the state (a very common business practice)

Signature One Financial Review Conclusion

Meanwhile, the CFRB and the BBB, as well as other online sites, have received many unsolicited very positive reviews and comments from actual consumers who have and are doing business with Signature One Financial, LLC. So in this Signature One Financial Review, we ask, Wheres The Beef.

“Where’s The Beef”?

And while articles like the one on “The Get Out of Debt Guy” may seem humorous today the confusion and miscommunication it provides to consumers who may be at a point where they are desperately seeking help could delay or even derail the consumers efforts as well as causing damage to reputations of great companies like Signature One Financial.

Therefore the cheap attempts by companies to piggyback on the marketing efforts of legitimate businesses ultimately hurts both the consumer and legitimate businesses like Signature One Financial, LLC.

Fresh Start Program Review

Fresh Start Program Review

Fresh Start Program Review

 

In this Fresh Start Program Review, we look at an innovative ground-breaking method of conducting business. The Fresh Start Program starts with all the ingredients that earned Signature One Financial their CFRB 5 Star Rating of Excellence as well as an A+ rating with the BBB and then goes a step further. The Fresh Start Program is designed to connect the consumer with the best financial services company for their unique needs, even if the best company for the consumers’ current situation is not Signature One Financial.

Fresh Start Program Cast a Wider Net

In speaking with Signature One Financial regarding this open platform for conducting business their response was actually a very simple answer. Signature One Financial stated that the Fresh Start Programs approach allows them to cast a much wider marketing net that ultimately returns them more clients that fit their expertise as well as helping consumers to find the right fit when it is outside of Signature One Financials focus. This approach sets up Signature One Financial for future referral business as well as the potential of repeat business from those consumers when their financial needs do fall within the area of expertise that Signature One Financial excels in.

Fresh Start Program Creates a Win/Win Scenario

Now while the overall cost for casting a wider marketing net with the Fresh Start Program is higher than marketing to a targeted group of consumers, the individual cost to reach a prospective consumer is less per person than filtering down to specific target markets. The marketing cost is shared by the different companies providing financial services to the consumer through affiliate marketing agreements in the Fresh Start Program. This method reduces overall marketing cost to the companies creating a saving that is passed down to the consumers in the form of value-added services.  The Fresh Start Program creates a true “Win/Win” scenario for both the consumer and the financial services company.

Fresh Start Program Connects the Right Client to The Right Company

The Fresh Start Program from Signature One Financial is truly a breakthrough in innovative marketing that helps the consumer get matched up with the best possible solution for their current financial needs and connecting the right prospective clients to the companies that are best suited to provide the financial services to meet those needs. As well as reducing cost and increasing the ability to provide value-added services to the consumer through the Fresh Start Program

Fresh Start Program Receives a 5 Star Rating from the CFRB

Based on the design of the Fresh Start Program to help the consumer find the help they need and the innovative method the Fresh Start Program uses to create a “Win/Win” scenario for both consumer and financial services company the CFRB sees this as a recipe for success. Combined with the reputation of Signature One Financial the CFRB awards the Fresh Start Program our highest rating of 5 Stars.

Like always we encourage consumers who have firsthand experience with the Fresh Start Program to comment below.

“I got a personal unsecured loan from Signature One for 35k which i used to pay off my credit cards. My score was in the low 600’s i think bellow 630. my rate was 12% but I saved over 120 per month compared to my credit cards and my term was for 3 years. The Signature one agent said that was because their loan was simple interest not compound like my credit cards.”

Signature One Financial Review: Personal Loans

Signature One Financial Review: Personal Loans

In this Signature One Financial Review, we are going to do something a little different. We have talked about Signature Once Financial before.

Signature One Financial Review: Loan Types

In this Signature One Financial Review, I’d like to talk about the different types of loans that Signature One Financial has to offer. Before I do that, I would like to clarify exactly what a personal loan is. Personal loans are known as “unsecured” debt because they are not backed by collateral, such as your home or car, as is the case with a mortgage or auto loan, respectively. Lenders will use your credit score to help determine whether to give you a personal loan and at what interest rate

So It’s not like they just give you a lump sum and let you decided what you want to do with it. Getting a personal loan doesn’t mean you receive money to go out and buy a new MacBook Pro. If you are reading this Signature One Financial Review, and that’s what you’re thinking, then you should just stop reading now. I suppose in theory, you could take out a loan at some pay day loan joint, no questions asked. Or through a Peer-to-Peer lending bank like Rise. The issue with those places is the terms they offer, and the rates they offer. You’ll end up paying way more in the end than you originally borrowed. Let’s take a look at the loan types Signature One Financial can help you out with.

 

Signature One Loan Types:

  • Debt Consolidation Loans 
  • Home Improvement Loans 
  • Short Term & Bridge Loans
  • Auto & Vehicle Loans
  • Small Business Loans
  • Baby & Adoption Loans
  • Engagement Ring Financing
  • Wedding Loans
  • Friends & Family Loans
  • Green Loans
  • Military Loans

 

If you’re new to the world of loans, you’re probably thinking while reading this Signature One Financial Review that some of these loans shouldn’t even be a available. Wedding loans and engagement ring financing? What do those two things have to do with Signature One Financial? Well, That’s just an example of the lengths Signature One Financial is willing to go just to help you. They’ve go their bases covered, and they are ready and able to help you through whatever life may throw your way.

Signature One Financial Review Regarding Personal Loans

This Signature One Financial Review

In this Signature One Financial Review we will be reviewing Signature One Financial Personal Unsecured Loans.  Our reviews of these Signature One Financial personal unsecured loans will be based on actual testimonials and some of the facts regarding Simple Interest vs Compound Interest.

Signature One Financial Review Including Client Testimonials

Earlier this year we started Phase 2 of the Signature One Financial Reviews by contacting the principles at Signature One Financial and requesting permission to make random contact with the Signature One Financial client base. We were pleased at the response from Signature One Financial in permitting the CFRB to make contact with the Signature One Financial client base in order to further our Signature One Financial Reviews.

Signature One Financial Personal Unsecured Loans Perfect For Debt Consolidation

In the this CFRB Signature One Financial client testimonial review we discovered that over 90% of the Signature One Financial Personal Unsecured loan clients used the personal unsecured loans for debt consolidation primarily to pay off high interest credit card debt.  This statistic is due in part to the marketing done by Signature One Financial where they send out pre-selected notifications to consumers who fit a specific criteria that provides Signature One Financial with their highest degree of success as discussed in previous Signature One Financial Reviews and the mathematics behind Simple Interest vs. Compounding Interest.  In this Signature One Financial Review we will look at the difference between Simple Interest vs. Compounding Interest and the Signature One Financial personal unsecured loan and why it is perfect for debt consolidation when paying off high interest credit card debt.

Signature One Financial Review “How Do They Do It”

In this part of the Signature One Financial Review we ask the question “How Do They Do It”?  In reviewing Signature One Financial clients we were amazed to discover how many people with damaged credit or low credits scores were able to qualify for a Signature One Financial Personal Unsecured Loan. For example one client in particular amazed us. For the sake of identity protection we will simply refer to this client as Jane.

“Jane received a letter from Signature One Finacial in the mail stating that she had been pre-selected to receive a personal loan from Signature One Financial for up to $35,000.00. She needed the money to pay off high interest credit card debt but she knew her credit was less than needed for this type of loan.  Jane gave it a shot and called Signature One Financial and applied for the loan.  Jane was contacted the next day and informed that her credit score through Experian was 537 and that this is considered a very low credit score. The Signature One Financial representative continued to counsel Jane on why the credit score may be so low and what she could do to improve her credit score and maintain it in the future. Jane felt as if she was being let down gently but still appreciated the advice from the Signature One Financial representative. At that moment the Signature One Financial representative informed her that she was approved for a personal unsecured loan with a fixed interest rate and a term of either 3 or 5 years”.

What we said approved with a 537 credit score?  It would be hard to get a secured loan with a 537 credit score!

And that is just one of many testimonials about Signature One Financial and why we maintain our 5 star rating in our Signature One Financial Reviews.

Signature One Financial Review, Personal Unsecured Loans Are Great For Debt Consolidation

 

In this part of the Signature One Financial Review we look at the Signature One Financial Personal Unsecured Loan and why it is perfect for debt consolidation. To do this we will look into the mathematics of Simple Interest vs. Compounding Interest, but first let’s state some aspects of the Signature One Financial Unsecured Personal Loan and Credit Card debt.

The Signature One Financial Unsecured Personal Loan components are as follows:

  • Simple Interest
  • Fixed Rate
  • No Pre-Payment Penalty
  • 3 or 5 year Term

Credit Card debt components are as follows:

  • Compound Interest
  • Interest compounded against average daily balance
  • Variable Rate
  • Minimum Payments Can Go On For many Years

Simple Interest vs Compound Interest

  • Simple interest is applied to the principle loan amount
  • Compound interest is applied not only to principle amount but also to the interest it accrues.
  • Most credit cards compound their interest on an average daily balance

The mathematics for calculating simple interest are fairly simple as compared to the mathematics for calculating compound interest, but since compound interest charges interest on the interest that has accrued on the balance, carrying any balance on credit cards for more than a few months becomes very expensive. Add to that compounding interest on an average daily balance credit cards can cost you many times over the amount you originally charged.

Most consumers do not understand the complexities of the mathematics behind the compounding of interest on their credit cards making it extremely easy to get caught up in a web of credit card debt that may seem impossible to escape.

With a personal unsecured simple interest loan like the ones Signature One Financial provide you are able to stop the compounding of interest on your debt and save thousands of dollars by paying off your debt with simple interest as well as the possibility of monthly payment relief.

Signature One Financial Review Maintains A 5 Star Rating

Due to the business model and commitment to serve the consumer as supported by consumer testimonials the CFRB maintains its original 5 star rating in this Signature One Financial Review.

As always the CFRB encourages your comments on this and all the reviews published through this website.

Federally Regulated Debt Relief Program

Federally Regulated Debt Relief, Debt Settlement or Debt Reduction Programs

In this post the CFRB addresses a somewhat controversial topic, the topic of the Federally Regulated Debt Relief Program also referred to as Federally Regulated Debt Settlement and or Federally regulated Debt Reduction Programs and the amendments to the telemarketing sales rule regarding Debt Relief, Debt Settlement or Debt Reduction companies brought by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) effective in 2010 bringing needed regulation to this industry. Debt Relief, Debt Settlement or Debt Reduction programs that operate under this regulation AKA Federally Regulated Debt Relief Program or Federally Regulated Program must adhere to provisions that protect the consumer when entering into business arrangements or contracts with Debt Relief, Debt Settlement or Debt Reduction companies operating under the Federal Regulation of the FTC and provide Debt Relief services through the Federally Regulated Debt Relief Program or Federally Regulated Program for debt Relief.  Although It may sound repetitive to continue to state Federally Regulated Debt Relief Program, Federally Regulated Debt Settlement or Federally regulated Debt Reduction Program but we do so since these terminologies are frequently interchanged by different Debt Relief, Debt Settlement or Debt Reduction Companies trying to create their own brand for the Federally Regulated Debt Relief Program or Federally Regulated Program. That being said we will continue this post using the terminology Federally Regulated Debt Relief Program or Federally Regulated Program.

We have chosen the Federally Regulated Debt Relief Program or Federally Regulated Program topic due to the overwhelming negative results of our investigations on several Debt Relief, Debt Settlement and Debt Reduction companies. This is not to say that all companies providing the Federally Regulated Debt Relief Program have received bad reviews from the CFRB, companies like Signature One Financial in there initial Signature One Financial Review received our highest 5 Star rating and have maintained this 5 Star rating through several Signature One Financial Reviews and they have received supporting comments and testimonials in their Signature One Financial Reviews from consumers that have conducted business with Signature One Financial. Signature One Financial provides there Signature One Financial Liberty Program AKA Signature One Financial Federally Regulated liberty Program or Federally Regulated Liberty Program for consumers who could qualify for their personal unsecured debt consolidation loan.

 

Customer Service Is a Key Factor in The Federally Regulated Debt Relief Program

How can so many companies offering this Federally Regulated Debt Relief Program get such bad reviews while other companies offering the Federally Regulated Program for Debt Relief, Debt Settlement or Debt Reduction receive raving 5 Star reviews?

The first and obvious answer is a commitment or lack thereof to the consumer to provide a valuable service with the highest level of excellence and the fact that prior to the Federally Regulated Program some companies provided exceptional customer service and results that matched or exceeded their promises to the consumer. So many people (business owners included) will take the easy way out of any situation. In dealing with Debt Relief, Debt Settlement or Debt Reduction you are dealing with consumers that may be feeling hopeless and like they have no other options. This could make them an easy mark for business owners who are inclined to taking the path of least resistance to make a fast buck. This same scenario creates an opportunity for excellence to stand out when offering the highest level of customer service to consumers in desperate need of a Debt Relief, Debt Settlement or Debt Reduction Program.

 

That being said let’s look at the changes brought forth by the FTC in the Federally Regulated Debt Relief Program and how this Federally Regulated Program benefits the consumer looking for Debt Relief. Looking at the changes the FTC’s Telemarketing Sales Rules Amendments for Debt Relief Companies brought we must keep in mind that the underlying commitment to provide service to the consumer with or without the federal regulation will determine the companies level of excellence and overall service to the consumer in Debt Relief or any industry.
