★★★★★ It seemed to me that we owed everyone, and we were constantly harassed, finally I said to my wife that we had to get this mess cleared up. I spoke to my bank manager who suggested I speak to YanchDey.
When I spoke to Jim Yanch he explained that we weren’t alone and he could help us to get our affairs in order. I gave Jim all the information and he took care of everything for us. We now have one monthly payment that is less than we paid before, the phone calls have stopped and we will be debt free in five years. Great Service and Thanks, James May Whitby.
