We would like to continue our series of blog posts on real life J.G. Wentworth customers who were more than happy to share their experience working with our company. Today we would like re-introduce you to two folks, both unfortunately injured in terrible accidents as children, who worked with J.G. Wentworth once they grew older to get the money they needed out of their future structured settlement payments and into their hands sooner. First we would like you to hear from Scotty, from Little Rock, Arkansas.
“When I was injured as a little kid,” Scotty told us, “my parents wanted to be sure when I was older that there would be money for future medical expenses. Now I’m 19 years old and it turned out I didn’t really need those future payments. But I’m in school, and I have a job, and I could really use that money now for a reliable car.”
“That’s why I decided to turn to J.G. Wentworth,” he continued. “They bought the payments I was supposed to get at ages 21 and 24 – and I was able to buy a car now, [and] didn’t have to wait around to get my money. Now I’m never late getting to class, and I’m never late getting to work – so, thank you J.G. Wentworth!”
Carlos is another one of J.G. Wentworth’s customers. 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 helped Carlos figure out an option that worked better for him. 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!”
A big thanks to both Scotty and Carlos for sharing their personal stories. It’s customers around the country just like them that make us do what we do.

Wentworth can help you get cash now, call our company anytime at 877-227-4713.
