  1. Congrats. FYI- if you are one who likes Starbucks, there is a Starbucks Chase card out there where you get freebies when you use it. I applied for this card three months ago and received $6000 credit line (I think it was $6k), haven't used it after the day I received it. Apparently BK friendly.

  3. If the OC is furnishing data to the CRA's, you can request an investigation per Section 623 of the FCRA. However, in your request, you need to provide them with ample reasoning and supporting documentation to justify the request. If they believe the request is frivolous, or you do not provide them with the information that they require, they can refuse to investigate. If you do provide them with reasoning, etc., they are required by law to complete their investigation and deliver results to you within 30-days of receipt of your correspondence.

  5. The only problem with this is that most blood sucking attorneys will not take a case on contingency when they know that the insurance is already maxed out.

I've had an old collections on my account for awhile now, and have been trying to get it removed from my CR. The company wanted me to pay over $9,000, but of course I told them "no".

  8. The idea of a bailout blows. Investor money gets flushed by folks that willingly took on too much risk. Taxpayers to the rescue. Furthermore, rate freezes on adjusting loans = a massive repricing of debt MUCH LOWER. The idea that investors have some unlimited ability to sustain losses is silly. Why should pensioneers such as school teachers shoulder the burden of speculators and liar loan applicants who bit off more than they can chew? Let the chips fall or we're just shifting the burden from parties involved to innocent parties (investors) that had no part in it.
