What New Jersey Consumers Need To Know About The Credit Card Industry

A number of years back Frontline (PBS) did a program on the credit card industry called the Card Game. The program may be a little long but you can watch it in 7 minute chapters.

Whether you are current on your credit cards or your credit cards have been referred to collections, you must view this program. In my more than 10+ years assisting consumers get a fresh start, I am convinced that financial education starting in high school and maybe even grade school would help people in managing their money and being as prepared as possible for emergencies.

Most bankruptcy filings stem from illness, unemployment, divorce, and/or death in the family. However, many people come into my office over extended and are often over extended years before the above mentioned tragedies occur. That is what the credit card industry is literally banking on. The Card Game report, which I encourage you to watch, is proof. Education is key! Be an educated consumer. The banks are betting you are not.

If you are in over your head consider filing for bankruptcy and get the fresh start you deserve. You can then feed your piggy bank instead of the credit card industry’s piggy bank.
