 All of the major credit card companies will probably say that they have been helping their struggling customers all along... But this is actually the first time that I have noticed an advertisement for  Help With My Credit in a magazine like Newsweek ...
 

 Perhaps, it's because I don't read that particular mag as much as I read BusinessWeek and the like ( I'm always searching around for biz resources), but I figured that since Credit is a major currency between Us-Folks and Them-Folks... It might be a good damn idea to see exactly how they are going to "help" people during a recession...Hmmmmmmmm...

 Oddly enough, the rates of Joblessness and the Credit Card Meltdown have been really big stories for quite some time now and huge a amount of information is available almost everywhere you turn...

- The advertisment itself featured the portrayal of a woman who had to leave her job to go traveling across the country to care for her ailing mother... She eventually lost her job and didn't know how she was going to keep up with all of the bills -- Credit Card Ed 101 to the rescue!!!

 Perhaps it's just me, but I say that the disastrous (and secretive policies) of Credit Cards themselves are prime reason why folks have wound up in dire straights in the first place...

 The societal view of people who are in serious debt with these instruments must be re-examined... They are much less to blame than one might think...

 I have a HUGE amount of Self- Interest in seeing consumers return rapidly to a glowing state of financial health, as should ANY and all of us Business-Folk. Our very Lives depend on happy comsumerism in all cases, and we should always be prepared to assist our prospective clients in every way possible.

 The credit card companies had better be looking at REAL HELP FOR ALL, or their industry will collapse like cardboard houses in a monsoon...

BTW: This story is a work-in-progress. I will be updating (and pinging) this article at regular intervals-- Your comments are always welcomed warmly at any time during this effort... :)

 Many thanks to Tara Murphy of the Free Library Of Philadelphia (Walnut Street West Branch-- 201 S. 40th St) for her gracious assistance with this article-- A free Credit Workshop will be held on March 11th at 6pm... all are invited to attend.

DUH???

It's interesting to note that the 'little money-grubbing games' they like to play(as opposed to actually providing a valuable service) led to this crisis:

Exactly my point, Cheryl... - That explains 'The Big Shiny Golden Ditch Digger" to a tee...(hee)! :)

As soon as they took the decision on approving credit from the banks and started basing credit worthiness on "credit scores" it was the beginning of the crisis. Banks used to know who they were giving credit to and if that person was truly "credit worthy" now credit is doled out on the basis of breathing.

Teenagers with no credit history whatsoever are being pre-approved? On what?

They gave (Unqualified) consumers the keys to a Big Shiny Golden Ditch Digger -- and now they are offering these (victims) customers a demi-tasse teaspoon to (hah!) dig their way out...

peaceful: Thats a very true observation, Cheryl... Oddly enough, they dont even mention ID Theft anywhere on..
Well that is a point of vulnerability for identity theft and always has been but they don't want that to get out. People might actually start using cash again and that would mean no more fat interest charges and over limit fees!

peaceful  Mar 4th, 2009
That's a very true observation, Cheryl... Oddly enough, they don't even mention ID Theft anywhere on the site. Perhaps a nice reminder from you would help! :)

When they figure out how to process their own transactions again they will really be helping. It's a shame that so many people have ruined credit and it's because of identity theft.
