Re: “Save up for a better boyfriend

I don’t think that you have to use men but women must be cleverer. I know so many women who helped their boyfriends or who took cash advance loan no faxing on this site: for paying debts of their men. It seems to me that men often use women and I wasn’t to advise you not to take any loans if this man is not your husband. Be careful with different sweet men who promise you everything what you want.

Re: “Generation Debt

It's very sad that today in most occasions higher education is impossible without getting in debt. College is almost a luxury today and that’s why lots of young people take out loans and get in debt to get a college degree. I think that college education is very important, it’s a worthy investment because people with college degree have more career opportunities. But on the other hand, college degree isn’t a guarantee of a wealthy life. In case you have a student loan debt you’ll spend your best years to pay it off. Many graduates work below their skills and use… to make payments on their student loans.

Re: “Swimming with Sharks

These stories are just awful. On one hand, some lenders are really predatory and use fraud to make money. On the other hand, I think that homeowners should be more cautions. A mortgage or a home loan is a serious financial commitment and you should make payments in time to stay in your home. Even 1 missed payment can impact the situation. Also it’s worth to choose the lender more carefully and to be more responsible about your loan. If you will understand that you have no money to proceed making payments in the right time then it will be easier to fix the problem and to avoid so frustrating consequences.

Re: “Cashing in on payday loans

Consumers should think twice before applying for payday loans and don’t fill loan application forms in a hurry. Because of tough economy there are lots of people with low income and they are looking for quick ways of borrowing money. And some of them don’t even pay attention at interest rates charged on loans. Any loan is a serious financial commitment and it’s not worth to use expensive services, even if they are fast and have benefits. Make sure you can pay off the loan and will not get into the debt circle. Payday loan lenders charge high rates because they take a risk when borrowing money to bad credit individuals.

Re: “Student Survival Guide 2012

Youth unemployment is one of the most serious problems today. We all know that student loan debt is already more than $1 trillion and it continiues to grow each day. I think that students and graduates should pay attention to different ways of a job search. It can be some intern jobs or somethings like that, the most important is to get a chance to express yourself and show that your knowledge is really worth something. College education is extremely expensive, some students even use loans from to make payments on their student loans but unfortunately, college degree isn’t a guarantee of employment. So it’s necessary to do your best to get a chance to make a successful career.

Re: “How to be in debt

Unfortunately, plenty of people consider being in debt and missing payments as something totally normal. It’s not okay when so many young people graduate with a huge debt they can not repay and then struggle for long years to pay it off. It’s sad, but education is a luxury today and those, who can not save enough cash and financial support from parents, should take out loans to get a degree. But on the other hand, there are still options available in case a person wants to avoid a debt. There are federal programs and saving plans like 529, which allow to save money and to avoid getting in a long-term debt.
