Structured Settlement Watchdog®
Client First Funding has outdone themselves with a simple but disturbing tweet that poses the question "can you afford the life you want to live?" accompanied by their all too common" screen hogging" road signs, this one blaring "can you afford it?" with nothing more that Client First's banner ad, their phone number and the message "sell your structured settlement".
Client First Funding's question is poignant but it fails miserably with its cheap and inadequate response.
In my opinion, the question "can you afford the life you want to live?" implies two possibilities:
- Are you overspending and have you got your self over your head with debt?
- Are you eyes bigger than your stomach? Are your ambitions bigger than your resources?
Can these be solved by selling your structured settlement to Client First Funding?
Selling your structured settlement to Client First Funding, or any settlement purchaser should come with a warning label.
Regardless of who is soliciting you, selling your structured settlement means giving up current and/or future income at a steep discount. This is a path of last resort.
The answer to the poignant question asked (but miserably answered) by Client First Funding in its Tweet Ad, can be illustrated by this Venn diagram of two intersecting circles, one marked What Do You Want and the other What Can You Afford, symbolizing the tough spending decisions that must be made when keeping within a financial budget
