What would you recommend for an 87-year old widow with an outstanding credit card debt of slightly more than $11,000 and no assets. She has been paying off this bill (and adding nothing to her credit card) since the death of her husband almost five years ago. For some time she paid the minimum, but more recently as the minimum has dropped, she has been able to pay slightly more. Now she is in a nursing home. Her income is modest (social security and a very small pension); assets are now down to less than $5,000 and will be depleted in short order by her need for either a nursing home or assisted living. In fact, she is applying for financial assistance. Two lawyers have recommended that she simply stop paying the bill since there is nothing they can go after. There is a concern, however, with harassment of this fragile elderly woman from bill collectors. As the relative handling her financial affairs, I feel horribly uncomfortable at simply not paying a bill. Do you have any suggestions?

This is a difficult one because you really have to decide for yourself what’s best. Do you follow the lawyers

I have been paying around $1,000/month with almost 20% APR. Then they put me in a program where I am paying $661.00/month with 2% APR. My problem is that I could no longer pay that amount and I would like to know what will happen after I stop paying? They told me they would put me back to the 20% APR and if I still do not pay, they would give my account to a collection agency. I know this will affect my credit score, but since I could no longer pay $661.00/month, what can I do before or after they give my account to a collection agency? I need an advice on what to do?

Unfortunately, if you already reduced your payment from $1000 to $661 and still cannot keep

10 months ago I started a business with someone I thought I knew well. Now he’s run off with all my $, the company profits and a 10,000 investment my son put up in May ’07, plus he ran up $8,000 woth of debt on one of my credit cards, and I’ve also had to use some of my credit cards to keep operating, until my cc debt is now approaching $10,000. AND if things don’t improve dramatically in the next few weeks I’ll have to close up shop. What do I do to deal with the cc co’s without ruining my credit?

My credit card debt has been charged off and now a collection agency is harrassing me for payment. My contract is not with them, but with the credit card co.

how can I lower this debt bill since the credit card Co adds $200 finance fee every month – I pay ahead of time

I keep getting these Bank Of America “CleanSweep” loan offers of up to $50k at “non-variable” rates. However, I’ve read a lot of negative things online about this. My bank is BoA, and I was thinking this might be a great way to consolidate two large credit cards at a lower rate… but not if they just jack me for no reason down the road. What do you know about this?

Hello. As far as credit card offers are concerned, the best way to protect yourself is to
