Amanda Dobanton Esq. is a managing Partner and General Counsel for Fairfield Funding. In the third point from the video below from the Fairfield Funding
website, Ms. Dobanton " educates" consumers with the sales pitch that they should never pay more than a 24% discount rate for the sale of their structured settlement payments. Implying that a 24% discount rate is reasonable, when 25-30% of that is on the upper end of reasonable in 2019, is a shocking indictment of the credibility of a member of the Georgia Bar and her employer Fairfield Funding. The video was first published in 2013, but was re-published and uploaded to the most recent update to the Fairfield Funding website that is used to solicit Americans all over the country. 24% was financial rape then and it is financial rape now. According to our sources, structured settlement factoring deals are being done elsewhere in the 4th quarter of 2019, for less than 6% discount rate and, in some cases, for less than a 5% discount rate.
Selling a structured settlement payment to Fairfield Funding, or any other company like it, is a money loser 100% of the time. Because the most Fairfield Funding can offer you is pennies on the dollar, consumers should ALWAYS shop their deals.
