    • Hello, I've been playing with my cc debt for a while now. I've opened new 0% accounts as suggested on these threads. When the 0% is over I transfer it to another one with 0%, accounts that I already have open. Now with the situation that we are all in, it's going to be a little tougher to pay more than close to the minimums. We owe a total of $25k, I've also worked with my DH's available credit for the 0% cards. 
      I am so tired of this debt! Our credit is good over 700's. I've thought about a personal loan since we receive lots of promotions on these, are these loans personally guaranteed? 
      Years ago they weren't but so much has changed. 
      Thank you for all the suggestions.

    • First thank you for all the knowledge posted here, I have followed CB off and on for over 10 years. 
       
      So here is me current credit Pic and I don't know what approach to take... except getting credit one and the AT&T charge offs removed.
      Once I receive me new unsecured Cap 1 I'm hoping that gives me a score bump because I really don't have any open accounts as you can see. Discover said no to their secured card 😢 I have been a member of NFCU since 97 but my account is dormant just need to deposit money in savings to make active. But I was thinking I need to wait until I clean up my TU and bring scores up before trying for their secured card.
       
      I'm assuming the student loans are hurting me but didn't want to contact them until I got better guidance from you all. 
      I could desperately use some guidance from you all

    • Well as most of us know, BofA if nothing else, is at least fairly generous with their soft pull CLI requests on a regular six month basis. It has also been well established that BofA has a de facto MAX aggregate unsecured credit card limit of $99.9K for most mortals, however IIRC both Hege and PotO have exceeded this.
       
      So my question pertains to MAX aggregate BofA unsecured credit card limits in relation to total income so that we can set better/more realistic goals and expectations with BofA and not waste our efforts in pursuing limits beyond the BofA underwriting paradigm.
       
      My aggregate limits are just a fraction below 50% of total income, so how far should we push this?

    • So my ob office just called me back because I had a health question. The nurse told me I was due for an ultrasound but that they can’t schedule it because I’m in collections for $234. First, I had no idea we were past due but I’m not happy my nurse and probably my ob have access to my financial info. I feel like this could impact my care. I get being deactivated and not being able to schedule because of being past due. But the billing office should be the only one who has that info. If I called in, the receptionist should be the one to say they can’t schedule me until I talk to billing. It feels like a violation of privacy for the nurse to know bc it could impact how they see me and thus, how they care for me. Are drs and nurses allowed to know the billing info?

    • Hello, I filed bankruptcy in 2016. Since then I haven't really done much to take care of my credit. Stupid, I know. The main issue I've had is running high balances but I recently pulled my credit reports to see if there was anything else going on. I found two medical collections on my report from after bankruptcy. However, I'm almost positive the services are from before my bankruptcy. For one of the accounts it reports on Experian as IIB with no balance but on Transunion it reports as active with a balance. I tried disputing it via credit karma but transunion came back saying it was accurate and now there's a note on it saying it meets FCRA (see attached image). 
       
      For the other account I'm almost positive it was also a service from before bankruptcy. What's the best process to go about confirming this info? Should I send a debt validation or dispute it with the CRAs? I worry that won't do anything because it didn't help with the other case.

    • most dealers are affiliated with Capital one.  Pick out a one to two-year-old vehicle with reasonable miles and have a down payment to cover sales tax and the other incidentals that are charged with a purchase.     Via a dealer, the decision is near instantaneous
    • The punishment for robocalls needs to be increased to death. Quick executions too.   This is the only solution as regulations like this have failed to stop the billions of these calls.
    • Thanks Marv - I did - twice.  The second time a more seemingly competent person said that's just how it is.  
    • I did call GreenPath and did not get much help there. I was naive and just paid GreenPath monthly and saw items being paid off as agreed for the first year. As everything was going as agreed, I stopped monitoring it as much. It became just a monthly payment and I was feeling good about paying off my debt. When it was complete I felt like a ton of bricks just removed from my shoulders. And life was good, for about three months.. Then my CK scores dropped and went to investigate, and found the issue - this account listed as C/O for 75 bucks.. I had just paid back a ton of money and my report flawed by this GreenPath oversight, likely an interest charge or something. What makes me real mad is that Chase did not send me any letters or call. 75 bucks after two years of a large GreenPath payment,  I would have paid instantly.    I do not know what to do about it at this point. Chase was easy to deal with but will not budge, GreenPath feels like it is not a big deal and says they can do nothing.    I feel like I am out of options.
