Credit Solutions Is Now Serving Spanish-Speaking Clients.

RICHARDSON, Texas -- Credit Solutions has launched, a Spanish-language version of its Web site designed to extend the debt settlement industry leader's reach by servicing what is now the largest U.S. minority group.1

Since about 40% of all subprime loans nationwide in 2006 were issued to Latino households,Hispanic families have been particularly hard-hit by the current recession, and a disproportionate number is struggling against foreclosure.2

Non-white Hispanic Americans are 39% less likely to own a home, and Latino families who are homeowners experience higher total amounts of debt and are more likely to be victims of predatory lending practices.3

The good news is that, by 2012, 40% of first-time homebuyers in the U.S. are projected to be Hispanic.4

Among the new Spanish-language site's features are advice, tips and tools designed to empower clients to achieve a debt-free lifestyle, including:

* An overview of why debt settlement is the preferred option over a debt consolidation loan, credit counseling or declaring bankruptcy.

* A video portal of client testimonials, with summaries of past success stories.

* Actual settlement letters from lending sources detail real-world experiences of settled accounts, showing the actual savings in each case.

* An up-to-the-minute, live ticker tracks the total dollar amount of consumer debt that Credit Solutions has settled since its founding in 2003.
