    I will be graduating soon with about 20k in student loans. I also have about 10k in credit card debt. Is there any way to lump it all together?

  • Julieann says:

    I am in the process of selling my home. I have an outstanding credit card debt judgment that is being levied against the sell of my home. Is this lawful? Is there anything that I can do to stop this from happening? The credit card debt is over $14,000. I do intend to pay the credit card off but do not want it taken from the sell of my home.

  • Carrol says:

    I have about 30K in credit card debt and I have good credit. My payments are about $800.00 a month and I want to eliminate my debt fast. Should I consolidate my credit card debt, or will that ruin my credit? I appreciate your help.

  • Olive says:

    Say somebody has X amount of credit card debt, then they die but still have that debt to the credit card company outstanding, what happens? Does the company have to write it off as bad debt or ? Perhaps the company can hit up that person’s estate. But let me pose another question then – what if that person’s estate does not have enough money to cover that credit card debt.

  • Valentine says:

    I live in the State of Georgia and am being sued over an old credit card that I defaulted on. It has been more than 4 years but less than 6 years since the date of default, so depending on whether credit card debt is considered an open account or a written contract in the State of Georgia, the Statute of Limitations may or may not apply. The Staute of Limitations is 4 years for open accounts and 6 years for written contracts. Does anyone know for certain which type applies for credit card debt in Georgia? The account is with Citibank MasterCard and was opened in the late 80’s or early 90’s. Thanks.

  • Pamala says:

    Or maybe a combination of both? I have approximately $3500 in credit card debt and am making double minimum payments on that debt. My question is should I make minimum payments and put the rest into investments or keep doing what i am doing.

  • Waneta says:

    Assume $8,000 credit card debt. Should I pay off cards first? I have a very high credit score due to paying off two new cars (long story).
    I’m currently paying them down. Just didn’t know whether I should even try to save for the down payment or put 100% into paying them down. I have about 1200 a month extra to “play” with. I want to fix all this college-time debt in case our economy heads into a recession.

  • Brian says:

    Is the Statute of Limitations on credit card debt, determined by the state you currently live in or where the debt originated?

    I have a debt that I stopped paying on in Jan 2002. I acquired the debt while living in Texas and stopped paying it while living in Texas. My husband is military so we have lived in Missouri for the past 4 years.

    The SOL for TX is 4 years for open accounts (credit cards) and for MO it is 5 years. Either way, the SOL has run out on this debt, however I am still wondering which would apply to us since we are military? We claim TX as our home/residence.

    Thanks!
    This debt was sold to a debt collector years ago.

    I have known others that have written cease and desist letters so I am not so sure that SOL on card debt is a “myth”.

  • Rickey says:

    I’m doing a persuasive speech on why people should pay off their credit card debt, but first i need to know how people feel when they have the debt. THANK YOU :)

  • Darrell says:

    I know that there are people who consolidate their credit card debts? Would you recommend that?

  • Nestor says:

    I have credit card debt in excess of $4000. Do the ads you see on TV for relieving one of credid card debt work? Or am I better suited to just pay it off?

  • Annabell says:

    Does it hurt your credit score if you have credit cards with no balance on them?
    I have 1 credit card from 2005 and 1 from 2006 which have never been used, and I just must have forgotten about them, so the accounts are still open. Does that help or hurt me?

    Also, I got my free credit report from Equifax, but they want me to pay $7 just to view my credit score. Is there anyway I can view my credit score for free?

    I heard that debt consolidation loans are better because they help your credit as you’re paying them off: is that true? and what legit company could I go to for that?

    (if you are able to, can you please provide legit sources of information, I prefer not having these serious questions answered by guesses or assumptions. I appreciate it.)
    I’d like to emphasize a part of a question… a couple answers said that those credit cards that have never been used are not helping my credit… Well, are they hurting it? Or are they just doing nothing.

    And to be honest, I couldn’t use my credit cards if I wanted to now… They’re technically closed, however the companies haven’t released them to debt collectors. But every company is looking for me to pay either $80 per month or settle by paying a large amount but not the full amount. I have 5 cards totalling $5000 (could be worse… yay for being jobless for 5 months and denied unemployment!). I just don’t know what to do. I tried a consolidation agency but they wanted $130/month… If I couldn’t make my card payments, what makes these people think I can pay that each month. The only thing keeping my credit afloat is my car payment, because I need to car to get to work.

  • Polly says:

    I’m 24 and desperatley need to start paying of my credit card debt. I have tried to consolidate my cards though had no luck as my debt is to big on each card for me to merge them together.

    Basically my debt is as follows:

    St George Mastercard – Owe $5,600
    Bank West Mastercard – Owe $5,800
    Citibank Visa Card – Owe $9,230
    NAB Visa Card – Owe $8,960
    Myer Store Card – Owe $1,300

    There all 95%-98%maxed out.

    Although i also pay $2200 a month in rent, (and my income per month is only $2600). I have a total of another $600 that is charged on my cards every month for contracts that i cant get out of (such as furniture rentals etc).

    The interest + insurance on each card is around $130-$180 per month per card so again its around another $450 per month just to meet the insurance and debt.

    I paid almost $2000 as a whole to my cards last month, and its already gone right back down again, so i’m currently thinking either declaring bankruptcy or just letting my cards run down to $0 to force the banks to stop charging interest.

    Is there any company who can buy your debt of you? as i dont want to pay the banks back, they have already charge me enough in usless insurance, late payment fees and interest to get any favours from me.

  • Jamila says:

    I always avoided credit card debt. I own a home and I like to save money. i’m 27 and single and all my girlfriends go nuts with credit cards. I fell into the trap a little bit and now I have $4,000 debt. Is this good for my credit or should i just do what I can to just pay it off right away?

  • Mahalia says:

    I got 2 credit cards and owe about $7,000 for both of them. It doesn’t seem like much but I was young and stupid when I signed up for these cards and the interest rates for them are super high! I’m paying l;ike close to $100 in interest monthly for both of them. Even if I pay the monthly payments the balance still wont go down! I want to get a loan to pay off my credit card debt. In the long run, I’ll save money, any ideas where I get get such a loan?

  • Darius says:

    If you have credit cards debt in the USA of about $20,000 and you are NOT a USA citizen and you move back to your country (England). What can happen in your opinion, I know the credit cards are unsecured debt. Can they chase you to another country (interpol) or is it just a bad debt? Do you think this will make a problem if I want to come back into the USA as a tourist in the future?

  • Geraldo says:

    I have two credit card that has a total of $19,000 debt with a crazy APR of 24%. I got an offer from another creadit card company that’s offering a personal loan up to 35K with an APR of %7.99. Should I go ahead and consolidate my two CC debt and get the low APR personal loan? Would getting another loan decrease my creditt score? Thanks.
    By the way, this is not an offer from a credit card consolidation co. It’s from Capital One offering a personal loan w 7.99APR for the life of the loan.

  • Columbus says:

    It seems that most people have some amount of credit card debt these days and I was just wondering if more people acquire it trying to buy something necessary (i.e. education, car, house) or something unneccessary (i.e. alcohol, clothing, etc.).

    Another words can credit cards actually be beneficial in the long run even though they cause you to rack up a crazy amount of debt?

  • Byron says:

    I live paycheck to paycheck, if i could knock out some credit card debt I would have more money to do the things I want. What is that fastest way to knock some of my debt down, so that I can actually save some money and enjoy life a little more?

  • Berenice says:

    I recently received a letter from the court requesting that I pay my outstanding credit card debt from a few years ago. A couple of days later, I received a call from a Lawyer demanding that I pay the debt immediatly. I currently don’t have the funds to pay the debt in full and have been informed that they will be charging me 9% interest each day on the full balance. Does anybody know what my options are?

    Thanks!

  • Carmine says:

    After taxes, im going to have 12k in credit card debt minus my college loan. Does anyone know of anyway to pay less interest on this amount? Or any advice at all?

  • Precious says:

    Here’s my situation: I have 3 maxed out credit cards totaling 35K (all debt to help a friend in need) and 60K of currently deferred grad school payments. I still have good/decent credit because my wonderful parents put me as an authorized user for all their cards since I was 10. I can’t thank them enough. Also, never had one delinquent, etc. The 0% on the cards have now expired and in pretty high rates.

    I’m a full-time student and work full-time, but can’t show income because only been working two months and it’s a commission-based job. On track right now to make over 120K this year, but can’t work for the next month and need a credit line or free up one of the cards asap.

    Can I move all CC debt into one account? What’s the deal with debt consolidation-will it affect my credit score? needed? How about yet another credit card? Any other companies that will see the maxed-out high limit cards and not freak? Any options being a student?
    Creativity welcome :-)
    Thanks in advance, Sam
