It has been "out of the closet" that the Society of Settlement Planners has a factoring representative on its Board of Directors for over 16 months. In addition a number of the members of the board are involved with marketing the buy side of structured settlement payment rights as a settlement planning solution for tort victims. So why does the biography of one of the SSP Board members give off the impression that the individual is a structured settlement broker instead of the structured settlement factoring broker that she is? There is no mention of factoring in the biography (as of October 2, 2011 9:09pm EDT).
If factoring is legal and acceptable what is there to hide? Shout it out!
Moreover, my friend Chuck Derenne's bio needs updating. Have known the man for 12 years and to the best of my knowledge he has not worked in British Columbia, picked up the nickname "Rhonda" or undergone a "transition".
Postscript October 4, 2011: The SSP has apparently corrected Chuck Derenne's bio.
