I have one card with BOA and one with FIA. I know that they are basically one in the same. I am so stressed right now. I am struggling with the payments. I also have four others at other credit companies (two with Chase and one with Discover and one with HSBCC)
I can no longer make these payments. My highest rates are BOA and FIA and I owe them a total of 45k. I have to stop making the payments. I plan to continue paying the others as they are smaller and at this point managable with lower rates (4-14%).
My questions are these:
Since I have my mortgage with them (BOA) how will that affect any of their negotiations with me...are they more willing to settle with me so I dont get foreclosed on or are they gonna sue me and attach a lien??
Will they see I am still paying the other cards and say that if I can pay them, I should be able to pay these.
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
