Hi folks, J.G. Wentworth here. In today’s blog we would like you to meet Carlos E., one of the many thousands of satisfied J.G. Wentworth customers who have sold their future structured settlement payments for cash.
When Carlos was five, he was the victim of a terrible accident. Riding on a lawn mower with his father, a blade tragically caught the laces of Carlos’ shoe, costing him his leg. He was given a prosthetic one, along with regular payments from a large structured settlement that came to Carlos every 5 to 6 years
While these payments substantially helped Carlos through his childhood, there came a crisis point in his life that culminated in January, 2013. That was when he found himself suddenly evicted from his home. In his own words: “We were sleeping in the car, and the J.G. Wentworth commercial came on the radio, and I thought, ‘Heck, I have nowhere else to go.’ So I called.”
Carlos was prepared to sell his entire structured settlement payment stream for a lump sum. But the J.G. Wentworth representative actually talked him out of it. Again, in Carlos’ own words: “Geoff [the account representative], he was a nice guy, was polite, worked with me… Originally, I was going to sell the whole thing, and Geoff, he explained to me how he could buy half of three payments, and I would still get part of my payments, and I said, ‘That’s frickin’ awesome!’… I actually was able to pay the three months of rent I needed to get a place.”
Thank you, Carlos, for sharing your deeply personal story. And thank you also to Geoff L.– just one of our amazing J.G. Wentworth customer representatives!
