Most credit card counseling plans can only decrease the amount of interest you have to pay per year. They don't actually decrease the amount that you owe on your debt.

yes. just tell the redbox its a credit card, then just swipe your debit card.An Opposing Answer:A credit card is not the same as a debit card, and vice versa. If you process a debit card as a credit card when that debit card is not encoded as an alternative credit card, the transaction will fail.

READ YOUR CREDIT CARD AGREEMENT If you fail to pay your credit card, you defaulted on the loan, it will go to a debt collection agency, and you can be taken to court by the credit card company, resulting in a judgment against you.

READ YOUR CREDIT CARD AGREEMENT It is not credit card fraud. If you do not make payments on your credit card, it means you defaulted. If you maliciously obtained credit cards and charge up limits without any payments, it might be considered fraud

I don't know about anyone going to jail for failing to pay on credit. Basically what happens is unpaid debt usually gets sent to collections but the credit card companies can file suits against you to garnish your wages so they can collect. Basically as far as that's concerned your credit will pretty much be screwed for a long, long, time. IF this is the case for you I would advise consulting credit counseling firms and see what they can do for you.

You can start by never paying over your limit on a credit card. You will have a good credit score that way and will always be approved. If you do go over your limit and fail to pay back the debt in time, your credit score will get worst.

No. Non payment of debt is a civil matter not a criminal one.

The one possible disadvantage is - You would be charged a hefty interest and penalties if you fail to make payments on your credit card on time. And also it would affect your credit rating..

With a credit card or charge card - the main pit-fall is interest. If you don't repay the whole outstanding balance before the end of the month, the card company willl charge you interest on the remaining balance. Charge-cards are often limited to one type of store - and charge higher interest than a 'standard' credit card. Debit cards can only be used if there is already enough money in the linked bank account to pay for the goods you're buying immediately. For example, if you try to buy something worth £100, and your account only has £75 in it - the transaction will fail.

There are various banks that offer college credit cards for students. If you already are a customer at a bank where you have an account, check with them and see whether or not they could provide a card. Should they fail to do this, there are some websites you could go to. Like Credit Cards, Find College Cards, U.S. Bank, College Board and Credit Card Guide.

personal counseling means whatever the the things that have known to your self does exist well and believing you are good enough .but if you fail to do it that's the best way to have personal counseling

Secondary credit cards are a very BAD idea ! Responsible usage of the card remains the 'problem' of the primary account-holder. If YOU misuse the card - THEY take the consequences ! If you fail to make payments on time (or miss a payment) - THEIR credit rating suffers ! Most credit card companies will issue cards to people with bad credit history - they just charge a higher interest rate, and give you a low credit limit. Once you prove you can be responsible with the account (by making the payments on-time and staying within your credit limit) - they'll usually lower the interest rate, and increase your limit.

For business credit cards you must have a business credit profile. Without a business profile and a business credit score you cannot get a "business" credit card. What you CAN get is a personally guaranteed credit card for business use. What people often fail to realize that by personally signing for a credit card it is STILL a personal credit card. The only difference is that the bank says "this is a business credit card" and it is to be used for business purchases. Consider building up your business credit profile before applying for a real business credit card (a credit card which allows the business to be its own collateral, not you). A true business credit card is a line of credit that is taken in the name of the business, under the business' credit. Activity, whether good or bad, is reflected on your business' credit report through D&B and other financial institutions, and the liability for any debts incurred and bills owed is with the business. However, some companies out there offer "business" credit cards which they require a person guarantee for. These institutions will often ask for a personal guarantee, and will almost always ask for a social security number from the person applying for the card. If this is the case, the credit card is not a business credit card, but is simply a personal credit card which is used for the business. The business is not liable for bills and debts - you are. When applying for a credit card for your business, watch out for areas asking for your SSN (and not your TaxID or EIN) and be wary of any credit card that asks for a personal guarantee. By ensuring that your credit card is in the name of your business, you can help to build your business' credit, while avoiding creating problems with your own. Many companies offer a list of credit cards that are issued under the business name only. Those lists typically run $300-$900, depending on the quality of the information inquiring. If your business is a sole prop., you are not going to get a credit card with only your tax id number. Our business has a credit card with our business name on it, however, it shows up on our personal credit report. If your business is a partnership, your local bank may help you get a credit card using your tax id number. Our local bank here in TN worked with us. Internet offers are no help in this situation. We also found a service that guarantees to help you get business credit cards using a tax id, but they wanted $1,500 for the service. Business Credit is separate from Personal credit - that is important to remember as a small business owner. Many business owners, just like in this question, have bad credit but that is not to be confused with business credit. Just like Equifax reports credibility of an individual the business has a credit reporting agency that reports on its stability as well. The key is to get your business registered with the credit reporting agency so that lenders can feel comfortable issues out loans, credit lines, or extended terms to the business. Bad credit or lack of credit is no longer an obstacle that prevents the small business owner from finding financing or funding their small business. Small business loans are available to those who have incorporated their business, have a corporate tax id and are willing to keep up their business profit and the business credit score.

Social Security, SSI, Veteran's benefits, and a few others are mostly exempt from creditor garnishments. The federal government CAN garnish these wages for taxes, spouse or child support payments.

If you pass an AP class but fail the AP exam you will NOT get a college credit but you will receive credit for the class. Colleges will still recognize that you took an AP class, and you will still receive credit for the class, just not college credit.

Bad credit home loans often lead to the mortgage holders defaulting on their payments. When too many people do this, the banks get in financial trouble and either fail or need bailed out by the government.

If you fail to make payments on your credit card, the company could sue you, take a judgment against you, and possiblyseize your car and sell it at auction. However, the credit card company would have to pay off the car loan in order to clear the title. That would not be worthwhile for them to do unless the car was worth significantly more that the unpaid car loan balance.It is also possible that the credit card company could not seize and sell your var because most states provide certain exemptions from execution on judgments. These exemptions vary widely from state to state.

Generally, not - unless you fail to make timely payments. If you receive a general notice about a change of rates, you can call the company to opt-out of the change of terms.

Your credit standing alone won't affect your spouse's credit. The only way your spouse's credit would be affected along with yours is if you jointly hold accounts and then fail to pay them.

Seven years. However, they will have less effect as time goes by. For example, late payments over a year old do not harm your credit as much as late payments from last month. Late payments over 2 years old are generally ignored.
