Share this with your readers. I just cannot believe that the credit card company will work with me. I have a Marathon Pet Credit Card (MAP). My balance is $1,093.92. I am self-employed and between customers right now. I just didn’t have the extra $118 to pay the card, so I did nothing. Cash wasn’t there. I avoided the MAP calls. Since I had to cut staff, I am the only one in the office, the only one to answer the phones.
