Credit Card & Debt Collection Defense
Are you being sued for credit card debt? If this is the case, then you are not alone. Americans are constantly bombarded with inflated bills and payments including mortgage payments, automobile payments, insurance payments, telephone bills, etc. The sad consequence of this is that millions of Americans resort to credit cards to make ends meet and quickly accrue a substantial debt they have no means of paying back. Moreover, the ramifications of credit card debt and unhealthy debt management takes an emotional toll on people causing undue stress and anxiety. This does not have to be the case.
Another practicality people with outstanding credit card debt face is the possibility of being sued by their creditor. While not always the case, creditors can sue to collect an outstanding debt. Creditors will sometimes sue for a debt as little as $1,000.00 dollars.
