This author of this article states that Steve Rhode mis-characterized what they said, and reports some information and findings about him.
“I never implied that seeking bankruptcy and completing an education course delivered typically by credit counseling groups in order to qualify for bankruptcy meant you enroll in debt settlement. Duh! That class is required 180 days prior to acceptance in a bankruptcy. I never said the class forces someone to enroll in debt settlement. My key point of the press release was that many people are unable to afford the payment in a credit counseling program, and thus must seek debt settlement. Steve’s quick advice is to tell everyone to jump into bankruptcy because it worked for him. I find that foolish.”
Excerpts from comments:
“Steve Rhodes is an idiot who knows nothing about the debt relief industry. He falls behind on some bills, get debt collection calls from 3 dollar an hour debt collectors, and runs for the bankruptcy courthouse. More so, his site is chock full of negative fear mongering content.”
“lol funny post. Seems to me that Steve is throwing stones in a glass house. He is in the business of slandering companies on his website so he can have people pay him to apply to the people that advertise the same services on his website.”
