Is Credit Card Debt Causing
You To Stay Awake?
Are You Concerned About
Paying Your Bills?
The financial credit crisis that began in 2008 has forced millions of people to search for
alternatives to handling their credit card debt because the solution of the past, refinancing your debt, is
all but gone!
It has become increasing clear to the average person that if you just continue paying the
monthly minimum payments it will take forever to payoff. Here are a few facts that you should know about when
you just pay the monthly minimums payments.
The truth about “Just
Paying the Minimum”
Minimum payments are designed to keep you in debt on average for at least 38 years!
Without ever increasing your balance you will end up repaying the creditors at least four
times the current balance in interest alone, even with a low interest rate!
So What Can You
Well, the good news is that you have options but… the bad news is that you don't have many!
When people seek out their options for debt relief here are the most common choices made:
1. Do nothing at all! Surprisingly this is very common typically because the mindset is, I have
nothing and they can't get blood out of a rock. The problem is it just gets worse and makes it much harder to
form a plan once you are being sued! Don't wait! Find out what options might work for
2. Attempt to contact the credit card company to reduce the interest
and see if they are willing to lower the payment, basically work with you. But 99% of the
time they tell you there is nothing they can do.
3. Seek out a debt consolidation loan to pay off the creditors and consolidate your debt into one
payment. Using home equity is a risky financial move to make and is out of the question
for many people given the current recession and “credit crunch”. Besides most banks don’t like offering loans
to people with high amounts of credit card debt.
4. Consumer Credit Counseling Company (CCCS) sounds like a good choice, one monthly payment and
the creditors are happy! But what about you? Finding out your monthly payment will be the same or even higher
than what you are paying now for the next 5 years or more is just NOT an option. Their happy, the creditors,
but not you!
5. So many people at this point have throw in the towel. This means to contact a bankruptcy
attorney which can be a fresh start for some but it should be the last resort!
Did you know that this creates a lifelong public record of bankruptcy that anyone can see and can remain your
credit report for up to 10 years? In 2005 Congress passed a new law making it extremely
difficult to claim Chapter 7, (complete discharge). Instead many are forced
into Chapter 13 a payback plan that is run by the court and the court will set how much you pay, not you! There is
an alternative to bankruptcy, read on.
Can you relate to the above
mentioned scenario? Are you confused as to how to resolve your problem?

Here is the
It’s 2012 and with unemployment rising and new
credit becoming impossible to obtain for millions of Americans the dream of financial freedom has all but
disappeared! Struggling just to maintain paying their living expenses has become the number one priority. Paying
minimum credit card payments and saving for the future as well as paying monthly living expenses have become more
difficult. For many it has become impossible to manage.
What people are in need of
is a quick way to get out of debt and at the same time manage so they can still keep food on the table and a roof
over their heads, not just become a profit line for the credit card companies!
The quickest solution is to negotiate the balances down, so you can stay within your current
budget and still come to an acceptable agreement with the creditor. This is not an easy
task and one should be very careful if you attempt this on your own. What you say with one creditor can get
you sued with another!
Just like using a Real Estate Professional to sell your home, if you are not already a
negotiator using a professional negotiator is a wise choice. First a professional knows
who to contact to get the best deal. That just doesn’t mean just the lowest amount but there are terms and
other agreements that can also be included to enhance the deal. Plus you have peace of mind that once you
have agreed to the settlement it is put to rest and will never reappear as it has for people that have tried
this on their own.
Recently there have been a
number of governmental changes in the way of regulations that the Debt Settlement and Debt Relief Industry must
follow to legally operate. Two notable changes have been the “Advance Fee Ban” and “Full
The advance fee ban has helped consumers
tremendously and has cleaned up the industry equally so. And full disclosure is a policy that
companies must abide by; meaning they need to go over and review all of the available debt relief options and help
you to choose the one that suits your particular situation the best.
For many people the best solution is debt settlement. The opportunity to save a substantial
amount of money based on current balances owed and reduce the timeframe to 20% of the time it takes with
paying minimum payments is worth any negatives associated with negotiations. Remember this
is truly for someone in a hardship not just someone looking for a easy way out.
The big decision for people comes down to
finding the right company with the experience and knowledge to properly get them out of debt and back on the road
to financial freedom.
Benefits of Using a Debt Settlement
