During college I moved out with a friend, which went sour and I end up owing about $1,200 when I had to move out because she didn’t pay.
Then my father, who had promised to help me with school went on disability and I couldn’t afford my apt and bills.
After this I decided to continue on with school and when they raised the rates on my credit cards I had to stop paying. Of course when school ended I didn’t have the job I thought I would.
I’ve paid a couple of debts through collection agencies and I’m rehabilitating my school loan but I still have some small accounts out there and occasionally get collection calls. I’m probably about $15,000 in debt. I don’t blame anyone for my situation and I’d like to take care of it.
I know about all the collection counselors and how DMP’s are pretty bad. Going through my credit report is more anxiety inducing than most things I can think of. I know there are a ton of great free resources on this site but I’d like to find someone in Chicago that would go through my report for a small fee, tell me what to pay off first and what my next steps should be.
Is there anything like that? It seems the credit counselors have an alternate agenda.
