Clients Speak Out

“Advantage CCS gave me the help I needed to pay off a huge credit card debt. The staff was extremely helpful. I want to pay special thanks to DeLisa Nuckels who was always there to answer my questions and provide advice. I started my journey 4 years ago and finished on December 2023. I still have one or 2 little things to take care of, but I am proud of paying off over $65,000.”
