Hey there
Im new here but seeking some assistance with this as I can no longer maintain my level of debt
Young mum of three, good job about £35k debt including the £9k hp on my car
I have approached a company in addition to payplan for an iva, however the ones who got back first were Debt SOS, seemed nice enough but having done a few googles I can't find the original site I put some generic info in about my debt into or a website for them :oops:
Does anyone know these guys and or have reviews on their rep?
I know these companies probably pop up all the time but I am committed to getting out of debt and don't want to be led up the garden path so to speak

Any responses or guidance gratefully received
Many thanks

Hello and welcome. I am afraid I do not have any personal knowledge of Debt SOS, but would recommend a chat with several firms. I, personally, prefer the small to medium firms who will treat you as an individual, rather than a grain of sand on a large beach.

Have a wander around the forum and see what our experiences have been with the firms we used.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

Hi, I have only recently entered into an iva (2months ago). I did bit of background work on companies but have never heard of that one (not that I'm an expert)! Like foggy said look around before making a decision, good luck!

Thanks both I will do just that
I've seen a smaller company mentioned in a good way on here and am expecting a call back tomorrow so fingers crossed I qualify

There seem to be a couple of overseas websites for debt SOS.

Perhaps this was the one you used?:

http://debtsos.co.za/

The only UK Company I can find is this:

https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/06923114

managed by Wesley Beatty but I cannot find a website for them.

Happy to chat if you want some advice.
