Consolidated Credit charges an upfront fee of $69, while the average fee in the debt relief industry is $56. Although there are numerous great online reviews about their service, we also came across numerous negative reviews. Some consumers complained they didn’t receive an up-to-date balance of their accounts, while others reported difficulties with their due payments each month.
