  • Would you be able to handle a credit card with no limit?

    Say if your credit card limit is now unlimited. Would you be sensible and only use it to buy what you can afford; or would you not be able to resist the temptation to buy everything you ve always wanted, even if it means building up a crippling amount of debt?

  • Payday loan complaints?

    Long story short, I've taken out multiple payday loans and the minimum repayments per month now eat up most of my piddly £1k per month wages. I started borrowing from these a few years ago and have borrowed from more and more different lenders and have borrowed off some to pay off another. I have lied on the application form slightly when they ask what are my total credit commitments per month, but when they have done a credit check on me they have paid no attention to my shocking credit score. I have credit cards as well which I am always on time paying the minimum monthly repayments. Basically I just want to know if I can complain and perhaps get some compensation rebated or something. I see all these companies advertising that they could get you thousands in compensation. It is my fault I've got myself in this mess, but surely the lenders should see red flags that once I've finished repaying a loan, I go right back in and borrow again...often for more over a longer period. Thanks.

  • My credit score is unusually low for my good ratio/perfect payments.Why isnt it higher ?

    Best answer: Since the medical bill is paid in full, that account is "closed." That's reported correctly. Your debt ratio is rather high & that cuts your FICO score. Even if you always pay on time, if you only make minimum payments, it's not good enough to boost your score. You might have an awfully high credit limit compared to your income, too.

    Make larger monthly payments (aim for at least 3-4 times minimum required), and get your debt ratio below 30%. That should up your FICO score quite a bit within 6 months.

  • Chinese culture, credit cards and dating?

    My brother is in Australia dating a Chinese woman. Recently they had a fight about money and she told him that in her culture the boyfriend gives the girlfriend a credit card to show he is serious. Problem is I have done some research on this and I cannot find anything about giving them a credit card. Is giving a credit card to a Chinese girlfriend a normal thing in our out of China?

  • How to handle a credit card to increase Credit Score?

    I have the money to pay off balances without accruing any interest with a zero balance from month to month. I have a low limit of $1,000.00 *Should one reach close to the limit and pay it all off at the end of the billing cycle? Or does it hurt to reach close to the limit? Even when paid in full monthly? *Should I charge away and make a payment mid month so I can continue using the card without showing a higher balance amount on month end statements? Which are paid off on time. Is there a rule of thumb about leaving a percentage of your credit card limit available and does it hurt to reach the limit even though it is being paid off in full every month without carrying a balance from month to month. I am trying to raise my credit score. I have no debt other than reoccurring monthly expenses such as utilities, food and gas. I own my house outright. Auto insurance paid up in advance. My credit score was 711 in May and now it is 700. I have made zero late payments and wonder why my score dropped 11 points. I only have this one credit card.

  • Why won t a credit union accept me as a member for deposits if my credit is frozen?

    I have applied for deposit accounts at two major credit unions and quality for membership. But, neither of them will accept me while my credit report is frozen. I am not or do I intend to ever apply for a loan or credit, just want to get the better interest rate on CD s. Is this just marketing? Is it illegal?

  • Why didn't my credit card chip work?

    I was checking out at Walmart today, and I inserted my credit card when it was time to pay like usual. But the machine didn't even register my card as being inserted. It didn't say "error" or "card declined" or anything like that. It just didn't do anything. Just held the pop up that says "insert or swipe card now". I tried swiping, but it beeped and told me the card must be inserted. Tried inserting it again, still didn't work, didn't pick it up or something. I cancelled the transaction and tried starting all over again, but nothing worked. I put that card away and used my new debit card, which also has a chip, but with this one the machine worked just fine. I paid for my stuff and left. But I don't understand why my credit card chip wouldn't work. It's even a relatively new card. Any ideas or possible explanations?

  • Should I dispute my Bankruptcy or leave it alone?

    The date that the credit reports have is incorrect so I could dispute them and possibly get them removed however the date that it should be is later than what they have. Is there a chance that they could just correct it and then I have to wait that much longer?
