Credit Card Debt
Credit card debt is something that is very easy to accumulate but it can be pretty difficult to pay down. That is because for many people, it is easier to spend money than to make money. Unfortunately, this is a trap that many people fall in when they get their first credit card or even multiple cards at the same time.
Why People Are in Debt
Approximately 8 in 10 Americans are in debt according to a recent study. That means that the majority of people that you know current have some kind of debt. There are many reasons why someone may get into debt like a reduction in income, a divorce, poor money management, medical expenses or underemployment/unemployment.
Credit Card Debt Relief
For some people, even the idea of consolidating the debt seems like it will not help them get out of the credit card debt black hole. Another option is to file for bankruptcy to get relief from credit card debt.
Credit card debt is often referred to as bad credit card debt because it does not really help you get a quality credit score, especially if you cannot make the payments.
