    I wrote a good pay for delete debt settlement letter, the only problem is I can’t figure out where to send it. Old Navy (which is who I pay monthly) has several addresses- one for mailed payments, one for credit/payment disputes, etc. I will not have a telephone for several weeks, and I am not near any town while I am on a trip. There is an 800 number to call, but I obviously can’t use this. I don’t want to wait several weeks to settle. If you have had experience with GE Money Bank settling a debt via written correspondence on your Old Navy card, please let me know where I should send it. Thanks for your help!
    1-877-222-6868 is the phone number they gave me.
    My account has not been turned over to any debt collectors. I missed about 2-3 payments after an injury and haven’t worked now in 18 months. They closed my credit card, and we agreed to an interest-free payment plan with the possibility to settle in the future. I’m not sure if I would qualify for a pay-delete, but I’d surely like to try.
    Thank you everyone for all of your input, it has been very helpful so far. I thought it might help to add that my Old Navy card is a Visa card and my credit limit was $3,600. With late fees, etc it reached over the limit at one point, but it is currently down to $2,900. My monthly payments aren’t bad- $100 interest free, but being injured and unemployed it is still very difficult to pay off. I have had to move back in with my parents and rely on my moms part-time job to support me. I have money left over from a student loan that adds up to about $1,900. I’m worried that the money will go too fast, and I was hoping to make things better for the long run. I’d really like to be able to have the credit to move back out in 2 years (or whenever I can return to work).

    okay, here is my situation. my husband and i mutually decided to take a “separation” period after seven and a half years together. we did not legally file for a separation though.

    i moved in with a guy that i had met at work and wanted to try a relationship with(have known him less than 6 months). unfortunately, our work place found out about our relationship and i was basically forced into quitting because of it(he is still employed there).

    this guy i moved in with and i only have a 6 month lease where he is living. we have only been living there 3 weeks, and i just recently found out a whole bunch of negatives with him.

    first off, he has an eviction on his record, several major dings on his credit report, and also several lawsuits/criminal records that occurred against him that i was NOT aware of at all. he failed to disclose any of this information before we moved in together, and i did not have the available resources to find this out about him until he recently gave my husband the OK to get his credit report.

    my husband and my bank account has been closed because of a check this guy so willingly accepted from a “friend”, our credit cards our maxed out from buying him things such as cigarettes, food, and the gas needed to drive him around everywhere, he has a very bad temper, a family member is in jail for murder, and to top it all off, he lied from the very beginning to me about his whole entire past and what was wrong with him.

    i tried getting in contact with our management company where this guy and i are on the lease at, and all she could basically say right now is that if i try to take myself off the lease, it would be a break lease, which i am already fully aware of..that is not including all the other fines and charges it takes to re-rent the apartment.

    my problem though is that this guy also(among everything else!) lied on our application for the apartment that he has never been convicted and charged for an eviction, yet he definitely HAS…

    1.) knowing all this information, is there any way i can actually get out of this lease without paying the break lease and all other charges?

    2.) or, will i still be held liable even despite not knowing a single thing truthfully about this man, and have to pay a portion or all of the break lease?

    3.) or, will he be fully responsible for all of it since i am currently un-employed due to losing my job where him and i both worked?

    i am kicking myself massively in the rear, believe me, for the huge mistake i have made every single day. my husband and i have never been closer together as we lose everything we own because of this situation with this person who has leeched everything off of us. i am just basically distraught and very hurt and frustrated over the situation because this guy had lied about every single thing concerning himself. i was just wondering if anyone had any help/information on what i can do to better this problem, or even get out of it? my husband and i are considering going to legal aid to get some help because we do not want to file bankruptcy or consolidate our debt…to us that is losing the fight with this heartless person.

    any help or ideas or even any information would be greatly appreciated anyone. thank you for reading this..it means alot to me, and thank you again.

    After some major errors in judgment throughout college and grad school, I have been left with a rather unfortunate credit score. I had several credit cards and department charge cards and didn’t realize how hard it was to pay them all off. Now I am suffering the consequences over 7 years later! (i.e., not being able to purchase a car from a dealer, get a personal loan, etc.) I got one of those credit cards where they report your usage to the credit bureaus and that has helped, but minimally. I am trying to do the right thing now that 95% of my debt has been paid off. Any helpful information would be fantastic! Thanks so much!

    I’ve already spoken with US Bank, and they said I could get a home loan after I keep my part-time job for a year (I’ve already been there six months). I live with my boyfriend and we both have jobs we plan to keep at least a year, but I recently found out I am pregnant and affording all the prenatal care would be difficult. I am planning on applying for Medicaid, but I only want to keep it until the baby is born. Would being on Medicaid affect my boyfriend and I trying to get a home loan?

    *Please only answer if you truly have knowledge of these matters…no guessing or personal opinions :) thanks
    I live in Colorado.
    sbinlb –

    i get what you’re saying but our situation is a little weird i guess… i don’t expect on getting a very big home loan, but the rep i talked to did assure me he’s helped a lot of college students do this after working part-time jobs for a year. plus, i’ll be the only one applying for medicaid, and my salary is lower than my boyfriend’s. thanks for answering :)

    I just ordered my credit report and score from equifax. My credit score is only 555. I have been doing very good paying ALL of my bills on time for at least the last year. On my report, under negative accounts, there are three things listed :$408 cable bill, $146 cable bills (reported 2006) and a finance company that says paid 31-60 under account status (with zero balance). Under revolving account, I have 1 credit card with $200 limit and $170 balance. I know this is high, but I just opened the card in December and haven’t made the paymeny yet. Under installment accounts, I have 7 accounts…..three of which have zero balances (they were loans I had but have been paid off). There other four are 2 car loans and 2 personal loans. Do I have too much credit? I really want to buy a house in the next 2-3 years and thought I was heading in the right direction until I saw my credit score. What are the best ways to raise it? I already pay all my bills on time.

    My mother is struggling financially and has been seriously considering getting one of these reverse mortgages to get a loan so she can pay off her past-due debts and survive for the rest if her life and not have to struggle again. The problem is, I have a really bad feeling about these types of companies. I think they screw people over all the time, especially desperate people like my mother who lives alone and is naive. Another problem is that, from what understand, the beneficiaries in her will wont receive the house when she passes away, is that true? Is there any way around that?

    So are there any legitimate reverse mortgage companies out there that aren’t all about screwing people over and are actually “on the up and up”. And are there any message forums anywhere that have discussions about reverse mortgages? I need to hear directly from people that have personal experience with reverse mortgages, like they themselves got one.

    Any and all information regarding anything I’ve asked or mentioned about will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.
    Sorry for the delayed responses, I posted this earlier and went to work and just got home to see the answers. I never expected so many wonderful and informative responses!

    @Gerald: She is going to see her lawyer to see what he says about reverse nortgages but I’m just hoping he knows all about them and can give her an educated response to help her better understand how they work.

    @Casey Y: Wow, you gave me a very thorough response and I appreciate the time you took to do so. Her credit is shot now (she’s 68) and has refinanced the house but not she’s unable to get a loan at her bank or another bank she tried so that option is out of the question. She’s got o/a 35K in past due debts that she’ll never be able to pay off given her only income is social security checks each month.

    Now you had said, and I quote “Generally, any difference between the loan value (with interest) and the sale price of the home would be returned to the estate. So, if that $100K loan e
    (Continued)
    So, if that $100K loan ended up with an extra $25k of interest, the heirs would get $75K back.”
    I didn’t understand that. Does that mean the beneficiaries would receive something?

    I agree with her not going with the lump sum, she would spend it all and end up being in a predicament all over again down the road. She would never sell the home, she wants to live there til the day she dies, And going into a seniors home would be out of the question for her, unfortunately.

    John sat at his table pondering financial fears. John struggled to make his paycheck elastic, his debts started to accumulate and his savings diminish. In addition, he had to pay the deductible on his homeowner’s insurance after a flooding in the basement; Sarah, his wife, just lost her job, and he has to pay medical bills on his daughter, Julie, unforeseen medical problem. No matter how hard John worked, all money that came in went out.

    After several years of being captive of financial slavery, John came to the realization that he needs to start preparing for a healthy financial future for the sake of not only his family, but for his well being. John recently read in Money magazine that 78% of us will have a major financial negative event in a given ten year period of time; and in John’s case, several financial predicaments. But they do not have to be considered “financial predicaments”, if you have savings put aside in an emergency fund.

    John concluded that savings is the best alternative way to make sure you’re financially safe. Since John is living paycheck to paycheck, he has no disposable income; therefore, in order to start saving he cuts down on everyday expenses. John and his family sacrificed their costly daily luxuries in order to economize. Entertainment and food were purchased in moderation; public transit was suitable for weekday traveling, the use of household energy was reduced and multiple credit cards were chopped.

    With everyday expenses being lowered, John has saved more and spent less. He has reached one of his financial goals to put six months worth of expenses in the emergency fund. John has taken one of six steps of becoming financially freed.

    Continuing education will empower me financially because the more you learn, the more you earn. Although, self employment attracts me powerfully; a college degree will make me more attractive and marketable to future employers [or clients] and are vital to successful careers. With the education that I will obtain in Business Administration and Creative Technologies, I will be a successful entrepreneur that will create creative solutions for problems by applying technological features to basic product designs.
