  • Is it better to take out a loan, or to go through a dept Consolidation company?

    I got into a lot of trouble with credit cards a few years ago ,and have about $13,000 in dept. I’m struggling to get them down, and can’t handle it. I have excellent credit and I don’t want to ruin it. I need some advice so I can live in peace, and never travel down that road again.

  • Am I wrong for thinking that my parents are fiscally irresponsible?

    My parents struggle with money. They rely on state benefits such as food stamps to keep food on the table. I think they struggle with money due to their awful spending habits. I may sound cold hearted and insensitive, but here’s some examples. They spent 10,000 dollars on exotic birds. (Enough money to pay rent for... show more
    My parents struggle with money. They rely on state benefits such as food stamps to keep food on the table. I think they struggle with money due to their awful spending habits. I may sound cold hearted and insensitive, but here’s some examples. They spent 10,000 dollars on exotic birds. (Enough money to pay rent for almost a year). They have a car payment, and it costs them 300 dollars a month to feed the birds. Meanwhile in my case, they get mad because I have 6,000 in my savings account (which is for my car) cash under my bed, and a paycheck in my checking account. But it’s because I don’t spend my money unless I have to. Am I wrong for thinking their struggles are their own fault?

  • So if I want to move out asap and I make 30k is it so unreasonable to save 15,000 a year?

    Best answer: If gross earnings are $30k, you must deduct Social Security & Medicare taxes, state & federal taxes. If you are eligible for health insurance through your employer, deduct your insurance premiums. You cannot save $15k out of what's leftover, even if you live with parents & they pay all your expenses, including... show more
    Best answer: If gross earnings are $30k, you must deduct Social Security & Medicare taxes, state & federal taxes. If you are eligible for health insurance through your employer, deduct your insurance premiums. You cannot save $15k out of what's leftover, even if you live with parents & they pay all your expenses, including transportation to work, clothing for work, etc. There's not enough left after taxes.

    Do you know how much you pay per 1000 gallons of water? Our water company charges $4.20 per 1000 gallons of water but according to Google the average cost in the US is only $1.50. So, depending on how much your water company charges, it may be as little as $12-$15 extra.

  • The only way I can bring myself to apply to other jobs is by quitting my current one. So should I quit so I start applying?

    Best answer: I understand your sentiment but totally disagree with your strategy.

    Walking out of a job sends a very negative message to any possible future employer.

    Your whole approach demonstrates personal qualities that could make you unattractive as an employee. You don't seem to have the drive and enthusiasm to make yourself do what you know needs to be done. You KNOW you should be applying for better jobs, but you don't. You know it involves no more effort to apply for a job when you are employed than when you are unemployed, but you ignore that fact. The way you present yourself is as someone who will do what they have to do if they are left with no other option. That, my friend, is a recipe for failure and disappointment.

    To make even more sure you fail, you suggest quitting a job before applying for others. Is this a conscious self-destructive path you are on or just laziness and lack of personal drive? Employers want someone with a positive attitude who will do what needs to be done, ideally without having to be told and who is motivated to make the effort to better themselves.

    My suggestion is to take control of whatever is going on inside your head and to invest in the sort of determination that is needed to make any progress in the world. If you do that, you might even find your present job offered more prospects but, at the very least, you would apply for new jobs with the right attitude.

    If you think I am being harsh with you, you might like to know I am talking as much about myself before I smartened up and got serious about my career. I am sure you feel worn down by your experiences so far but you can do it if you believe in yourself and make the effort.

    So in December I am going to Los Angeles over the new year. I have wanted to go for so long and I finally ave enough money to pay for most of the trip. I do need to get a loan - maybe $5,000 maximum and I have everything organised and I know what spend each day, my flights, accommodation, transport etc. I am first year university and I feel like that it is the right time to do it while I am still young and I have no debts to pay off. I know how much I need to pay each month to pay off the loan and I understand that this may affect my finances later on. I know my mom will disagree with it but I am 18 and it is my life and my decision on what I do. I just don't know how to tell my mom about it and whether I should do it soon or when I have everything booked so then she would have to say yes?!

  • How deep of sh*t are my sister and brother in-law in?

    My sister called earlier and said that they are filing for bankruptcy and that they are nearly 100,000 dollars in dept in all. They aren't rich either and I don't see them being able to pay this off we are all still very young. She is only 25 herself.

  • Are there situations where you would pay first during a Loan?

    Are there situations where you would pay first during a Loan?

    Best answer: There are NO situations where you pay first for a loan. It's actually illegal in California "For consumer loans, the DBO prohibits advance fees by lenders under Financial Code Section 22300" Any and all fees are taken out of the amount of the loan or added to payments after you receive the money.

    Best answer: There are NO situations where you pay first for a loan. It's actually illegal in California "For consumer loans, the DBO prohibits advance fees by lenders under Financial Code Section 22300" Any and all fees are taken out of the amount of the loan or added to payments after you receive the money. If there were $450 in fees, he could either choose to receive $4550 instead of $5000 as the loan amount, or that $450 would be added to the amount to be repaid. And they are NOT a licensed lender in California

    California Financing Law (contained in Division 9 of the California Financial Code, commencing with Section 22000.(Financial Code § 22000 et seq.)) requires licensing and regulation of finance lenders and brokers making and brokering consumer and commercial loans

    You can check if a company is licensed here https://docqnet.dbo.ca.gov/licensesearch...

    Enter the company name at the bottom of the page and you will see the results say "No Search results found for the selected criteria" meaning they are NOT a licensed lender and therefore they are operating illegally

    So this is not a legitimate company and they are breaking the law. He needs to file a complaint here http://www.dbo.ca.gov/Consumers/consumer...
