The internet has brought a wealth of information to everyday people with a simple touch of a button.
The problem is that not all the information available online is reliable.
There are so many ads and offers on social media, online, and in search results these days, it can be challenging to tell the difference between a genuine opportunity and a scam.
As a beneficiary of structured a settlement or annuity, you have several options available to restructure your benefits to suit changing financial needs. However, you want to make sure that you are dealing with a reputable and authorized company before you consider entering into any contracts.
Fortunately, there are a few simple ways to find out if you are dealing with a reputable company.
Go to the company website and take a good look around.
All these small details can tell you a lot about the company making you an offer.
Any company that is compliant with legislation will have comprehensive terms and conditions. This is when small print is a GOOD thing!
When you consult with an account executive, they will explain your rights and the pros and cons of each scenario that is under consideration when it comes to your benefits and financial wellbeing.
All documents will be explained in full, and you will not be encouraged to sign any documents without being fully briefed on what you are signing and why.
If your account executive is not open to giving you all the information that you need to make an informed decision, it would be advisable to ask more questions.
One of the most telling signs that an offer is a scam is how the company you are dealing with manages payments.
A reputable service provider will never ask you for confidential information not pertaining to the transaction under discussion. If anybody asks for your confidential bank pin, you are not dealing with a reputable company.
If you have any concerns about an offer that you have come across online, make sure to do your homework before sharing any information or committing your money.
