Scott, I have an offer to write a check in any amount at 1.99% APR with a 3% fee of the check. I would like to make a transfer to a credit card for $3,400.00 on which I am now paying 11.24% interest. I’m currently paying $100.00 per month toward this debt. After adding the 3% fee, how much I will save by doing this? I would appreciate any help or insight to my question. Thank you. Sandra
Debt Free: How I did it Debt Free: How I did it
by Cindy Campbell
About three years ago I sat down and knew for sure I was in debt. I had credit cards that were over the limit, due to me charging and charging, but not paying. I use to write checks at the grocery stores, for cash back, knowing I was going to be paid within a day or so, so I knew the money would be there when the check cleared, just not at the time it was written. I was so deep in debt.

The TRUTH About Credit Repair The TRUTH About Credit Repair
by Scott Bilker
Ads abound almost everywhere (online and off) selling books, systems and secrets to help you fix your credit in a hurry. Many of these programs have claims, which read like the covers of supermarket tabloids, "In 3 hours my credit score jumped from 580 to 676!"..."Erase bad credit and smash your debts with just 2 Magic Letters!"..."Create a completely new credit file in 24 hours!" Are these types of claims ALWAYS too good to be true? The answer is "Yes and...no."
I've been gouged for $99! Are bank charges negotiable? I've been gouged for $99! Are bank charges negotiable?
by Scott Bilker
Hi Scott, This just happened to me in the last few weeks. I spoke to my bank (Bank of America aka BOA) about overdraft protection, which they said was a free service. I wrote a check, which would have caused an overdraft but since I had the overdraft protection, they took out 3k on our Visa account. Now we got the bill from Visa, which has both a transaction fee finance charge of $99.00 and a periodic rate finance charge. Is this a charge that I might successfully have waived?Thanks in advance.
