What should you do if late on your credit card payments, combined with a bankruptcy, means you cannot make the monthly payments on time, due, and in full? As a bank, we can quickly prepare and even prepare customers for future financial troubles by reducing the impact of late payments by freezing or eliminating any credit card statement purchases made after you or your creditors are bankrupt.
The downside to selling a bankruptcy credit card is that you are likely to face other creditors, both good and bad, who may threaten to take advantage of your bankruptcy assets by passing on your non-repudiation payments to creditors. You will also find that most cases of default on your credit card accounts may be years before you ever notice.
In most cases, when a bankruptcy is declared, all you have is one creditor. Many people consider this a disincentive to work with them. If you are one or even more money in debt than you are, you may be better served by working with a bank, the credit bureau, or the bankruptcy attorney.
If you feel that your credit card payments cannot sustain your debt load and you must seek alternative methods of addressing your debt, you need to address these issues.
There are many alternative methods of addressing your debt:
Counseling. Debt counseling services may be available to help you reduce your debt. However, counselors do not have to perform any of the services you may wish to provide. Instead, they may consist of a telephone, an in-person counseling session, or may consist of a debt-management plan (DMP). If you need to cancel a credit card account or apply for unsecured credit in order to reduce your debt, the best option is to seek the advice of a licensed counselor.
Discipline. Even if a counselor admonishes you, you may be better served by discharging your debt. If you let a creditor charge excessive interest for a lot of items, this would lower your monthly payments and reduce your chance of still having these items in your credit history.
Cash Advances. Debt consolidation companies operate in the same way as any other debt-management service: by using special funds to pay your dues, they add to your balance at a surplus rate. Sometimes, the special funds listed on their Web site can add up to nearly 30% of the total amount you owe.
Over-the-Credit-Limit Counselors. For those who feel that they cannot secure a debt-free income, they may choose to seek private counseling services. If a counselor considers an offer, you must clearly show that you will bear the full cost and the full attention of the counselor in making the offer. You also must provide the full names, addresses, and contact information of anyone providing such service. Only the name of the organization, the individual, and the type of counseling offered can protect you from a serious financial setback.
If you find a counseling agency you can trust, contact your local consumer protection agency. Consumers should not be deterred by a counselor’s criticism of counselors or their advice: They should not be held responsible for their emotional and mental health problems. Many victims of identity theft have been treated well by such organizations. Courts have declined to award monetary settlements because of false claims made against counselors. A debt-behavioral-behavioralist may find a counselor’s criticism unnecessary.
Before engaging in counseling, you need to take a few things into consideration.
Do not mention to your counselor or anyone else that you might be tempted by a debt-related problem. Avoid such things:
Taking debt counseling or other types of monetary assistance
Making a commitment to pay a bill or to pay out a loan late
Getting into debt trouble
Making a serious commitment to pay more than the minimum monthly payment or to live off the principal before your next domestic transaction – such as a car payment or a “late payment” on a home mortgage is usually the act of becoming committed.
Criteria for Defaulting on No Credit Card Application
Although you do not qualify for a credit card that the company will not honor because of poor credit or because of a past incident, a credit card that you apply for should have a prominent prominent asterisk (*) after the word ‘defeated.’ Many Americans have fallen victim to credit card problems and, while some can be overcome, most will not. If the problem appears on your credit card application, you should contact your existing credit card company and inform them of the credit card that was lost or stolen. If you live in an apartment complex near the U.S. Postal Service, mail the following information to the following address: Experian, Equifax, or Experian Letter of Guarantees of 100 or more.
