For a prestigious national newspaper, I am writing an assigned story on debt settlement. I would like to interview, by telephone, folks who have had experiences settling credit card debt either on their own, with an attorney, or by hiring a firm. Looking for good experiences, bad experiences, or anywhere in between -- just looking for the facts, with the aim of helping all consumers understand the benefits and pitfalls. Interviews have to be on-the-record, meaning I have to put your name in the paper; I may also ask if we may take your photo to run along with the story. Everyone will be treated respectfully by me. If you are interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and phone number. Thank you for your consideration, Jane B.
