Hello, I have several questions. Due to missing an entire due to being sick as well as a family emergency, I am beyond broke. Today is payday but I have car insurance that must be paid by midnight or i will be dropped, a $54 ticket and rent owed. Rent was late last month by a couple of months and my landlord is already hounding me for it (the latest I can pay that is Thursday, Oct. 9).
I also owe my bank aprox $176 and I owe a food store $228 for writing a bad check. These bank problems have been going on for awhile, (its on the banking thread). What should I do? I have made about $100 towars rent but am gonna need like $500 by Thursday. Can I even do that? How should I pay these bills? I haven't paid electricty in like a month, my phone has been cut off already.
I live in a poverty-stricken area, nobody has any work for me outside my two jobs (like yard work or anything, not that people even have lawns here). The churches have been drained of their emergency funds for people. It's just bad times, I have no idea what to do. Any suggestions at all? I have been having problems with money for the past six months or so (after being homeless for a short time in 2007). I am just trying to get on my feet again like I was this past winter..

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.
