The Problem with Factoring, Part 4 -- "Preying on the Weak"

In part 4 of this series on common complaints about structured settlement factoring, Matt Bracy and Scott Drake discuss the frequent charge that factoring companies "take advantage of" consumers.  Matt and Scott discuss:

  • Do factoring companies charge sharp discounts to payees who are ill equipped to appreciate the value of their future payments
  • Do factoring companies give sellers pennies on the dollar to buy payments
  • Are factoring companies taking advantage of people?
  • Do structured settlement payees require some sort of special protection?
  • Why all the negativity when talking about factoring?
