    • Hello all!!
       
      I will try to make this as short and sweet as possible. I used to make much more money than what I am currently making. Never paid late on my cards until recently and I’m still never more than a few days late. My cards are all maxed out and it’s costing so much to keep up with everything. I thought about going on the hardship program with my cards but I think that might have a negative affect on my credit. My utilization is at 99%.  I just don’t even know where to start. I would love to just work on getting the balances down because I feel like the hard work will stop me from charging the cards up again. I have 9 cards. And I have no lates reported as I’m never more than a few days late.

    • With an upcoming refresh of the American Express Green card there are several rumors swirling about potential improvements. Right now the Green offers 2x points on purchases through the amextravel portal and 1x on everything else for a $95 AF. Yawn. 

      The current rumors are suggesting a June/July/August launch bringing with it 4x on "gas" and 3x on "streaming services" with a wild card of free Amazon Prime with membership. Not awful at all if true. I'd be curious to see the caveats that will certainly come with the gas category, and the streaming services seem a little petty since I'm sure even the most die hard cord cutter only spends around 50-75 a month in service fees. As with all the other charge card refreshes I expect to see a bump in the AF to around $149 which leaves this a little underwhelming to me. If it's meant to be an intro to AmEx charge cards then it would seem to entice the everyday folks you need to include everyday expenses for instance, cellular service. Maybe free phone insurance for any service paid with the card, similar to the propel from WF. Just throwing daydreams out here. 
       
      Anything you would want to see with a potential refresh?

    • Hi all,
       
      Wondering if anyone has personal experience with having a civil judgment made against them that then lapsed / expired. A family member is wishing to transfer property to me, but I am concerned due to a couple of judgments from the most recent recession. I know it's not the wisest route, but due to my circumstances at the time and several years following, I essentially did nothing (didn't respond to letters, people trying to serve me, etc., definitely didn't make any payments). I didn't realize until recently that judgments could be revived. At this point, I don't want to declare bankruptcy when it's almost been 10 years... I should have just declared BK at the time of the judgments but obviously wasn't educated.
       
      Any help / thoughts appreciated!

    • My son in college, playing baseball was injured and sent for an MRI. They used my insurance information. I never received a bill. I was expecting the school to cover the bill since the baseball coach and AD sent him for the MRI. Anyway, we recently pulled his credit file and its showing as a collection on his reports. I disputed as "not mine" but it came back as confirmed.
       
      How do I proceed????  contact the school 1st? Why Chat do I just follow your procedure?

    • I buy and sell Bitcoin using regulated exchanges and I am registered with FinCEN as an MSB.     So far, this activity has been rejected by State Dept FCU, DCU, and Langley FCU, the last two restricting all activity to cash only, basically making the account useless such that I closed it.  DCU even mailed me a check for the remaining $8k that was in the account.   I have called several credit unions, asking if they would allow a business account for a business that trades BitCoin.  Every single one said no, many after taking the time to investigate and get back to me.  Has anyone had experience trading BitCoin (or any other Cryptocurrency) using a credit union?  I'm striking out.

    • Get Early Access to Hella Mega Tour: Green Day/Fall Out Boy/Weezer and More   Who wants to see Green Day in San Diego on 7/24/20?  I saw them ~10 years ago and it was one of the best live performances I've ever seen.   I also came to appreciate Weezer well after their popularity peaked.   I'm getting four tickets, and I'll figure out the rest later.
