Going to court may not be the worst option

Going to court may not be the worst option. I am head over heels in debt, really I am bankrupt.

One of my creditors has brought a judgment against me for a medical bill of 5K. I have to go to court in a couple of weeks. I am in the process of making a list for the judge of all my debts and current payments. This includes a student loan in default which has grown from 35k to 43k since un/under employed; however, I do make very small payments on this loan (less than $50 a month although it grows by $300 a month because of interest. In court I intend to explain my state of bankruptcy to the judge and offer the creditor a small payment. There is no other option. The only other possible solution is applying for a personal loan with fast and almost guaranteed approval from websites like or – these are the best, but you may also google for more.

What I am trying to say is: If you go to court and explain what that agency did and ask to maintain your current payment plan, it may well work.

Also, what that agency did is called bait and switch. You were lured into a payback plan and then the terms were switched. I had a dentist doing this to me once. I had expensive dental work done and she agreed to a payment plan. The dentures were made and I still owed money. She did not want to release the denture and insisted on full payment. Luckily I was able to get a lawyer; It only took one visit. The lawyer wrote a letter to the dentist pointing out the “bait and switch”. The upshot: I got my dentures and did not have to pay the balance. That dentist did not want legal trouble. There must be Federal agencies that deal with illegal collection practices, consumer protection agencies. You may want to contact your state attorney’s office to see what they have to offer re: consumer protection.

Good luck!

Does anyone on here know of any legitimate free work at home places?

I have 3 small children and me and my husband both work full time and have second part time jobs. In order to make our budget (which is trimmed so far that it is impossible to trim it anymore) we need to make anywhere from $200 to $500 a month (i’d prefer the $500 so that we could actually start saving for a house!) Does anybody have any ideas?

I know some people who do phone work at home…let me check with them and I will send whatever info I can. Probably won’t be until tomorrow since I am out the door to MY second job :-). It can be done though, there are legit co’s out there.

I work with west at home but I also worked with them when I lived in va. As long as you dont mind dealing with customers not to hard and you are usually paid by the minute.

Could you give me alittle info about West, like exactly what you do and pay scale? I have signed up and am ready to start my basic training online. iappreciate any info.

I am also interested in working from home to get out of financial debt. Could you let me know if they have a website I can visit, please.
