Beware of debt companies advertising their services as 'government debt advice' - these claims are often misleading.
If you're worried about your debts, make sure you get expert debt advice from a trusted, impartial organisation. The best way of guaranteeing that the advice you get is free and impartial is by getting in touch with a debt charity, like ourselves.
Government debt advice
Many fee-charging debt management companies use phrases like ‘government debt advice’ or ‘government debt help’ to advertise their products. Please don’t be misled by these types of claims.
By describing their services as ‘government debt advice’ these companies appear more reputable and may persuade you to take on a debt solution that isn’t the best option for you. You should always be wary of any debt company offering only one debt solution. It might not be the right one for you, and could make your debt situation worse, rather than better.
