    Client Testimonials

    "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! "
