I made a purchase on a credit card 16 years ago. I sold the item to a friend, who agreed to take over the payments. I never heard anything until I pulled my credit report and found that the card account had been charged off. The outstanding balance at that time was $400. Now I've started getting calls from a CA regarding this account. They're demanding more than I originally owed when the account was charged off. Should I get help from a debt consolidation Columbus, Ohio company?
Ans: The first thing you need to do is figure out who legally owes the debt. If you have written evidence that your friend agreed to assume the debt, then you will not have to make payments on it. If you cannot prove that you are not responsible for the payments, then you need to send the CA a letter informing them that the Statute of Limitations has expired. Once you have done that, you need to call them and negotiate a payment agreement with the CA. Know more....
Back in 2004, I took out a number of internet payday loans in Cleveland. I'm unsure how many. Recently, I have been getting a number of calls from CAs asking me to pay on different accounts. How do I figure out how much I owe, and how do I get rid of these pdls?
Ans: Your credit report will be able to give the details about how much your creditors believe you owe and to whom. You then need to validate the debt so that you are sure that you are not paying on a debt you don't owe. Once they provide you with sufficient evidence, you should start making the payments. If you find it hard to manage several pdls at once, you can enroll in a Cleveland debt consolidation program and combine your payments into 1 simple monthly payment. Find more....
