Debt collection scams can cause consumers to consider bankruptcy

They can be incredibly convincing. They have personal information that the consumer believes only a legitimate debt collector could know. Their tactics may even convince some New Jersey consumers to consider filing bankruptcy. The problem is that the person on the other end of the line is a scam artist and most likely got the consumer's information from a payday loan application.

Movie made about New Jersey able to pay mortgage debt with cakes

Many New Jersey homeowners remember July 2009. The housing market had collapsed and hundreds of thousands of homeowners across the country were either behind on their mortgage debt or in foreclosure. It was during this time that one woman received a heart stopping letter from her mortgage company telling her that if she didn't pay them a certain amount by within two weeks, she could lose her home.

Is it possible to stay debt free after a bankruptcy?

When people get into trouble with their finances, it is through either a series of missteps or a catastrophic event. Many New Jersey residents file for bankruptcy in order to obtain a clean slate to start over financially. The question then becomes how to stay debt free.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy could help when income is less than debt

No matter how much money a New Jersey resident makes, he or she can still be overwhelmed by debt. Many people believe that if a person earns a large salary, he or she does not have problems with debt. However, that can be far from the truth. Income level has little to do with the amount of debt a person may accumulate. For some, filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy could help them pay off debt and achieve stability once again.
