Calling banks for my 82-year-old mother Calling banks for my 82-year-old mother
by Scott Bilker
Scott, I help my 82-year-old mother pay many of her credit card bills. She's scared to call the credit card companies and I don't want to be added as an authorized user or they will show up on my credit report. Is there a service that she can give a power of attorney to that will call the credit card companies on her behalf? Currently, she is NOT past due on any credit cards--but that will change if we can't reduce these interest rates. Thanks! Brian

Bankruptcy Law Passes House Bankruptcy Law Passes House
by Scott Bilker
Bankruptcy change legislation passed Congress last week in a 302 to 126 vote and has been signed into law by President Bush. The changes introduced by this bill are tough on consumers and good for banks. Banks are having their cake and eating it too, as the hackneyed-cliché goes.

How banks use low rate offers to lock in high rates How banks use low rate offers to lock in high rates
by Scott Bilker
Scott, I have used the lower interest rate checks from my credit card company to transfer debt. I noticed on my statement that the balances on the original rate and the new rate are not getting paid down proportionately. Can I get the company to apply my payment my way? Is the use of these checks a benefit or a curse? --Mary
 
Message from the publisher 1/12/05 (dial-up)
by Scott Bilker
Hi. First off, I want to wish you a Happy New Year! And I hope you enjoy this first 2005 issue of the DebtSmart Email Newsletter! In the "Letter from the publisher" section, I have, in the past, created a video message instead of a written letter. However, the majority of readers prefer the text as well so, I'm trying to combine the text and video to deliver as much information as possible in a manner that everyone likes.
