But when people read something on the Internet, they tend to give it more weight. Somehow, the Internet gives anonymous posters credibility. I recently read this post on another bankruptcy blog. I believe the paralegal was doing her best to give accurate information. But a lot of the statements she made were simply false. In my opinion, this is dangerous and irresponsible. Despite the disclaimer on her website (“this is not legal advice”), many consumers will make decisions based on what they read rather than on discussions with a lawyer.
Lawyers aren’t the only source of information regarding bankruptcy. But be sure to consider the source and quality of information you get before you make any decisions about your financial future.
