Credit Info Center Encourages Consumers to Fix Their Own Credit
Written by: Kristy Welsh
SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - March 26, 2010) - (LSI) - CreditInfoCenter.com has just released episode 9 of its 12-part comedy video series "All 'Bout Credit". Entitled "Finding Time to Fix Your Credit," the episode features Kristy Welsh, consumer credit advocate and founder of CreditInfoCenter.com, and her puppet dog co-host, Nookie, discussing the reasons that people should spend time fixing their own credit rather than using credit repair companies.
In a spoof of the many real-life conversations Ms. Welsh has had with her readers, she scoffs at Nookie's claims that he doesn't have enough time to handle his own credit repair - "I have a full time job, I have kids, I have a LIFE." Actually, the average American spends about 140 hours a months in front of the television set, says Welsh. "Taking a fraction of this time to write letters to correct errors takes about 2-3 hours at most, a much better use of anyone's time." The episode concludes with a quick and easy credit repair tip.
The "All 'Bout Credit" series was designed to resemble an educational children's program and uses a puppet dog, Nookie, to voice the kinds of awkward personal credit questions that many people have but are reluctant to discuss. Past episodes have included how to handle collection agencies, credit reports and bankruptcies. The series reflects Ms. Welsh's belief in using humor to teach consumers about credit, for as she says, "the subject is pretty dry stuff".
