What is the best debt settlement for $12,000 and lower debt?

I recently switched jobs making significantly less money. Now I am past due with bills and am getting some pretty rude calls from creditors. I want to pay them but am having a hard time. I have been seeing commercials about debt settlement and needed some help deciding who to go through. I have a little less than $12,000 to pay off. Please site sources when you can and THANKS ahead of time!

Just consodilate your bills through companies like CCC Credit Counseling. They'll give you 1 payment to them, and then dispurse it. And the cool trick is the CC companies won't accept you till you skip a few months. Your credit will fall downhill till its paid off, but stop stressing...people are out there to help!
