As a professional musician I have had the great privilege to play in the big leagues but when the rug was pulled from underneath almost 6 years ago, I slipped into large debt, depression and an immense sense of guilt. My mother was diagnosed with inflammatory cancer, the music label I was signed to was sold and business dried up almost overnight. The turning point was when I struggled to support my family and started asking for help. I turned to a good friend that told me that for the past year he was also on debt review and referred me to the angel of the other side of the telephone, Karin Augustyn.
I phoned Karin and after a few seconds on the phone I felt like my prayers had been answered. She was efficient and honest but mostly she knew the ins and outs of the process. I was in the safest hands possible. We quickly established an affordable budget and we started the process of clearing my name. If ever I can give a recommendation to someone it is definitely her, two thumbs way up and my stamp of approval.
Lastly, I made a friend, someone that protected me and took my interest to heart when collectors were harassing me. Money comes and goes, but a friend like Karin will last a lifetime.
I had a lot of problems in the beginning when I was under my previous debt counselor, to the extent that my car was taken back by Std Bank and I had to go to court to get it back. They were difficult to reach.
However since I moved over to Cape Debt Clinic, everything has run extremely smoothly. Your assistance with regards to arranging reduced interest rates saved me from paying a lot more. If I had gone to Cape Debt Clinic from the beginning I’m sure my debt would have been paid off a lot earlier. Your response to all my queries were well within an accepted timeline.
Thanks you for your efforts!
Thank you so much for all your support.
You have been a great part of the new start for me and my wife and we will always be indebted to you and know that we are truly grateful!
Almost over the last hurdle.
Good morning Karin,
Just letting you know that the budget you drew up really helped us and thanks to God I got a breakthrough…
Once again thank you very much. I’ll be using this method indeed, now and in the future.
In this case, no debt review was needed!
