About CreditGUARD

Who We Are

At CreditGUARD, we provide reliable credit counseling and debt management services to American consumers across the country.

Our debt management program helps consumers get back on track with their bills by consolidating their unsecured debt into one easy monthly payment. Our credit counseling agency advises consumers on personal budgeting, debt consolidation without home equity loans, credit card promos and filing bankruptcy. Understanding these credit solutions and what the better alternatives are can help consumers get through financial difficulties.

Our non-profit credit counseling agency provides additional educational resources and materials on credit management, debt collection and money management. Credit and money management is key to creating a stable, financial future. For consumers in debt collection, it is important for them to know their consumer rights and how to spot collection harassment so debt collectors don’t take advantage and even how to stop the collection calls entirely. Our credit counseling company encourages consumers to enhance their personal financial literacy through our educational resources.

Member Support & Creditor Information

Our non-profit credit counseling agency works with most major creditors in the U.S. CreditGUARD receives most of its support from voluntary fair share contributions from the creditors participating in the debt management program.

While there are fees associated with the administration costs of the debt management program, most of our services are free to consumers.

    "I am so grateful for my experience with Credit Guard of America. I frequently had to call with questions and concerns and they were always so helpful and kind. I had to speak with Eric a lot, I’m assuming he’s a part of management, and it was always a pleasure. They made it easy to pay off accounts and do extra payments. All 5 of my credit accounts are now paid and I couldn’t have done it without this program. I was happy to recommend them to one of my closest friends! "
