MSN Money – 5 tales from debt hell – Manage Debt
Five individual readers of MSN Money Central are singled out in this article for asking the tough questions. They’ve made mistakes, and the author gives them some of the sympathy they deserve. The stories “from debt hell” include co-signing a loan with a relative, overusing credit card balance transfer offers, not considering the value of education loans, choosing the wrong credit counselor and filing for bankruptcy. Of course, none of these are inherently mistakes, but sometimes something goes wrong. Liz, the author, provides some suggestions on how to survive the worst in these situations.
