A poor man's JG Wentworth copycat commercial by Liberty Settlement Funding features people demonstrating with green placards that say Liberty and beg you to "Demand Liberty" as if structured settlement annuitants are unionized workers whose workplace rights have been violated. The misleading bullshit from a member of the National Association of Settlement Purchasers demands "freedom from long term payments' and asks "why let someone else hold your money that's rightfully yours".
In letting its members speak for themselves, the National Association of Settlement Purchasers continues to reveal itself a feral herd of duplicitous business people. On the one hand there are those who feign magnanimity while at the other hand misleading consumers at every turn in their advertising or business conduct.
Why Liberty Settlement Funding is Disingenuous
A. "Freedom from Long Term Payments" A structured settlement is a negotiated agreement, not something that forces a personal injury victim to wear handcuffs and leg irons and be fed through a meal slot in the door.
On Monday I received a call from a gentleman who agreed to a structured settlement to compensate him for his physical injuries in an accident 3 years ago. During the call, which was for a routine administrative matter. I asked him how he felt about his structured settlement now and he said it was a great move for him because it eased the financial pressure by providing the steady income, allowing him to heal in his own time.
B. " Why let someone hold money that's rightfully yours"
The ubiquitous message, not confined to Liberty Settlement Funding, is a sample of the worst misleading marketing messages on offer in the structured settlement secondary market. Why quit a steady job and give up a steady paycheck that is free of income taxes and expose yourself to market risk? The only solution that Liberty Settlement Funding has is to get you to part with your steady job and steady tax free paycheck for a payoff that makes them a boatload of money, not you. The lame "shop steward" leading the "job action" in the Liberty Settlement Funding ad is lining her pockets at your expense.
C. "Don't miss The Boat'
Do you really care if you miss a financial shipwreck, Gilligan? Keep your money, Duck Liberty Settlement Funding and take a DuckTour in Boston.
If you are going to "Demand Liberty', demand Liberty Life Assurance Company of Boston or Liberty Mutual Insurance Company.
Liberty Life Assurance Company of Boston is a prominent structured settlement annuity issuer. "Shackle' yourself to a steady job and a steady paycheck with a company that is 90% owned and is guaranteed by the most prominent workers compensation insurer in the USA, a company in business for over a century.
