Dear Tim,

Do You Have a Question You'd Like Help With? Contact Debt Coach Damon Day. Click here to reach Damon.

You can ask them to take you out for dinner and a movie if you want.

You can most certainly call your credit card company, present your situation and see what they may be able to do to help you.

But, and here is the big but, you need to understand how the settlement process works with your creditors. If you want some expert self-help education on this I would suggest your contact Consumer Recovery Network. They have a DIY course that people seem to like.

To check out the risks you can use the free How to Get Out of Debt Calculator to review your options.

Let me know what you decide to do.
