The question "What is a structured settlement annuity?" is simple enough. Yet an annuity blog called "Simply Annuities" has somehow found a way to mess it up.
"Structured settlement annuities are financial investments designed to provide personal injury victims with liquify (sic) in years to come. As with any major decision relenting(sic) to personnel (sic) finance and future financial security, there are risks and rewards,pros and cons, and even a few road hazards, regards (sic) selling your annuity for a lumpsum (sic)".
So typical of non credentialed marketing companies who "pimp" for cash now hustlers"pay per click manna. The observed formula is (1) ask a legitimate financial question , (2) put out an uninformed effort to answer it; and then (3), the inevitable sinking to the depths of the cash now hustle non sequitur.
It's a foolish strategy that deserves the irreverence The Structured Setttlement Watchdog gives it.
With the wealth of legitimate information out there such writers have no excuse to churn out the garbage they do. How about producing something of value?
Check with the Structured Settlement Watchdog, John Darer, or another credentialed structured settlement expert to make sure what you are putting out as fact about structured settlements really is. One entity who I recently strongly criticized has taken the positive step of contacting us and asking us to review certain content for accuracy.
It does not have to be us, but it should be reviewed by someone with valid and relevant credentials, who is a natural English speaker rather than a non English speaker running a translation program or someone with less than an upper percentile high school graduate's English proficiency.
NOTE: Review of submitted materials does not imply endorsement. We simply want accurate information out there about structured settlements, and consumers to have the clearest path to accurate and relevant information.
