If you are trying to make ends meet and are having past due bills pile up, the last resort you would want is to take out a payday loan to pay your dues. There are many sources available today that offer payday advances. To get a quick payday advance loan, you can connect online with many payday advance loan companies. Most payday loan companies do not check credit so even if you have bad credit or no credit, you can still apply for a payday loan. The loans are issued after you show proof of banking account, Social Security, Driver License and Pay stub proofs. This information is used against you, often the lenders will deduct money from your accounts including interest, and principals that apply to each loan you take out.
If you are applying for a payday loan online…Beware…Some of the sources are not even institutes that specialize in payday loans. When you are trying to repair your credit, the last thing you need to do is spend money that is not necessary. When you borrow money from payday loaners, your personal information may not be private. Since many of the lenders are outside of the United States and are out of government regulations, your information just might fall into anyone’s hands. This puts your credit at great risk. You would be wise to perform some extensive research to ensure the payday loan institute is valid and trust worthy.
Payday loans offer you a loan against your paycheck, but the downside is you will be paying higher fees to get the loan. You could be wasting money and taking a chance on your identity. Some payday loan companies offer a "free" loan to their new customers i.e. no fees as long as the loan amount is paid in full on its due date. If you are searching for help to repair your credit, it might be wise to search the market for legitimate resources that will help you restore your credit at little or no cost to you. There are Debt Counselors and Debt Management Companies available that assist people with credit repair but the best source is you. You might be wise to check out government options that are available to people with bad credit.
Many services are available to help you repair your life. The best solution is keeping up to date on your bills if possible or minimizing your monthly installments by opting for credit cards that have no fees attached and low interest rates. If you have a credit card, or else applying for a credit card avoid charging items to your cards unless it is absolutely necessary. You might want to apply for a different credit card if you card has high interest rates and discontinue your old card once you receive your new card. In some cases, depending on your credit card history, you could call your credit card company and ask them to reduce your interest rate. If you have had a good history with the company, they will most likely oblige.
If you suspect that someone has access to your card be sure to contact your provider immediately to report the card lost or stolen. Always keep this information in close vicinity to ensure a quick response. Be sure to only provide your personal information to those you trust i.e. Social Security Number and Bank Account Number. Never give information pertaining to you freely especially over the phone. If you are considering a loan to payoff your debts, check the market first before applying. The more applications you complete, the more it applies against your credit report. You might want to cut back on your utilities, i.e. reduce your heat or air conditioning, to save funds that can be applied to your bills.
While many people believe that getting their bad credit repaired can only be done through a professional agency, this is simply not true. By going to a credit agency, you might find that it takes a great deal more time and money than if you just worked on it yourself. Before you get in touch with a professional credit repair service, refer to the steps listed below, and you might find that repairing your own credit is not that difficult at all.
When you repair your own credit, you must understand that it is a lengthy process that requires patience. The first thing you need to do is contact credit reporting agencies in writing, and request a copy of your credit report so you can see any debts you owe to apartments. Federal Law states that everyone gets a free credit report annually. You can locate the three main credit-reporting agencies that you will need to get in touch with by performing an Internet search using the terms “Credit Reporting Agencies”. You might also consult your local phone directory.
Contact the agency in writing, and include the following information in your request:
1. Request a free copy of your credit report.
2. A copy of your state identification (such as your driver’s license)
3. Copy of proof of your current address (such as a utilities bill showing your home address)
4. Provide your previous addresses for the past 5 years.
5. A copy of your social security card.
6. Make sure you close the request with your signature.
Your credit report should take approximately 4-6 weeks to be generated and sent to you. If you receive a letter denying you credit, make a copy and enclose it with your written request for a copy of your credit report. If you have already received your free annual credit report permitted the free yearly report, you can use a denial letter of credit within 60 days of its receipt.
When you receive your reports from the agencies you contacted, look over each report for accuracy and discrepancies. Create a log in order to track the differences. If you find invalid accounts or errors in your reports, do not hesitate to file disputes. If you need to file a dispute, most agencies provide the forms to do so via their website. Each credit report should provide contact and account information for each creditor. Keep a log of all your debt information and creditors. Most debts older than 7 years old probably won’t appear on the report, and if so, leave them alone. Most creditors after 7 years will write off the debt, though some might continue to pursue you. Whatever the case, don’t open the Pandora’s box if the account isn’t listed on your credit report.
The next step is to contact each creditor or apartment to make payment arrangements. Most of them will be willing to work with you, while some might not be so agreeable. If a creditor is being difficult, feel free to ask for his or her supervisor or speak with someone else. Expect some creditors to be rude and unwilling to work with you. Try no to feel discouraged, be persistent, and ask to speak with someone else. Offer a settlement amount. Keep a written log of the conversation, including the person’s contact information each time you speak with a creditor.
It can take as many as 6 months to feel like you are making headway on your credit repair, but rest assured that your credit will get better within a year or two.
It is very important that while you are paying off your debts that you pay by check or money order and retain all receipts. Make sure that you request a receipt for the payment from the agency.
Continue to obtain copies of your credit reports annually from each agency. Do not create new debts while paying off your current ones. If you receive credit offers, throw them away. Remain focused on your goal to get out of debt and document your payments, contact with the creditors, their names, extension, time and date you spoke with them and list any pertinent detail regarding your conversations.
