  • There are people claiming the government has some program to pay off your debts. They are usually con artists who want to take a “processing fee” from you and then you never hear from them again.

    The U.S. Government is not a Dutch Uncle, unless your name is Lockheed or Boeing. No free lunch for stuff you rang up on your credit card, sorry.

    The best you can do is work out a payment plan with your credit card company – reduce the interest rate, etc. Or rollover to a new card at a lower rate or to a home equity loan (yea, I know, good luck with that, today!).

    Cut up those credit cards. Sell off some stuff – if you have a hobby car, jet ski, fishing boat, or whatever, bite the bullet, swallow your pride and sell the “stuff” and pay off the debt. I know it is hard, but I can tell you first hand it feels much better to own less “stuff” and have less debt.

    Good Luck.
