LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER 
by Scott Bilker

Hi,

Here are a few interesting items...

Virtual Account Numbers I just got an email from Citibank announcing their “Virtual Account Numbers” program. You can generate random account numbers for one-time use on your account. Once used the number is not valid. This translates into added security for your online transactions. I’ll have to give this a try.

Consumer Credit According to data released on 3/5/04 by the Federal Reserve, consumer debt increased at a annual rate of 8.6 percent in January, or by $14.3 billion, from the previous month. That is the greatest increase since May 2003. This moved the consumer credit outstanding to a record $2 trillion in January.

Paying in Full According to a Motley Fool poll, 67% of respondents reported that they pay their credit card bills in full at the end of the month.

Regards, 
Scott

GETTING OUT OF DEBT 
by Scott Bilker

Below are the questions and answers to my recent email interview with John Mark Eberhart from “The Kansas City Star” in Kansas City, Missouri.

John: A general question, for starters: I personally know folks who have high credit card balances, car loans, and other debts that are quite high. They're not in bankruptcy, but they feel so hopeless about ever getting out that they just can't stand to think about it. What would you say to such people? Is it as difficult as it seems? Why or why not?

Scott: I would say that they can take control of their financial situation! They have the power! It's going to take some...

BUY 1 BOOK, GET ALL 3!

Learning how to talk your way out of credit card debt is the quickest, easiest, and most efficient way to start saving money! You can call your credit card banks to negotiate a better interest rate and have fees waived! However, it may not be as easy as picking up the phone and asking.

That’s because bank representatives are trained to deter you from pursuing the deals you deserve. Overcoming their tactics can be difficult when you don’t know what to expect. That’s why I spent years researching and writing my latest book, “Talk Your Way Out of Credit Card Debt: Phone calls to banks that saved more than $43,000 in interest charges and fees!”

This book is a comprehensive guide to negotiating with credit card banks by phone. I cover many specific situations from getting fees waived to getting rates reduced--even settlements! The book contains 52 phone call transcripts from my personal phone calls! The banks always say they record us for training purposes, well, this time I've recorded them!

HERE’S THE SPECIAL OFFER: Get my latest book for $19.95 and I'll include my first two books at no additional cost! So you'll get “Talk Your Way Out of Credit Card Debt”, “Credit Card and Debt Management”, and “How to be more Credit Card and Debt Smart” all for only $19.95 plus shipping! That's a $49.85 value for only $19.95! All books are bestsellers at Amazon.com and have also been mentioned or recommended by major media such as Reader's Digest, Newsweek, Kiplinger's, Woman's World, CNN Money, and many more!

I guarantee that you'll save money by reading my new book. If you don't believe that “Talk Your Way Out of Credit Card Debt” can save you 10 times the cost of the book, then you can return it for a full refund and keep the other books as a gift! That's how confident I am that you will save money!

GETTING OVER FEAR AND ON WITH YOUR LIFE 
by Chris Widener

I have worked with thousands of people through the years and written for millions of others, many who have written to me for advice and the like. One of the things that I have found to be common in so many people is fear. Fear is something that cripples people and keeps them from pursuing and reaching their dreams. This does not have to be so! I truly believe that a person does not have to have fear in their...

DEBTSMART HELP CENTER 
by Scott Bilker

Hi,

Helping you with your debt is very important to me personally! If you've been reading my articles, you know that I always encourage self-help as a first step. However, being buried in debt can be very overwhelming, which is why you may want to explore other options.

One of those options is professional, ongoing help with credit counselors. I've started to personally check out certain companies so I can recommend the ones that are worth considering!

If you would like to speak with a representative from a...

HARNESS YOUR MIND TO CREATE PROSPERITY 
by Dr Jill Ammon-Wexler

+++Our Overlapping Worlds+++ We now know beyond a doubt that everything in the known universe- -from the ‘physical' world, to our innermost thoughts--is basically energy in motion.

Actually our inner ‘mental' reality and the world's ‘outer' reality are an intimately interwoven quantum event. We are participants in an open and dynamic living universe. And we are actually living in two side-by-side overlapping worlds.

Sound strange?

Perhaps. But if you view your thoughts and memories as “energy sources” that exchange energy back and forth with the “external” physical world ­ you're right in line with modern quantum physics and neuroscience.

Several years ago I had an experience...
