I spoke with D from Urbana, Illinois. The client called in to get help with his credit card, he used $2100 over a year ago, making his payments each month and the balance is not going down. It actually went up to $2300 he cannot send them anymore towards the balance due to his is living on low social security benefits. The client’s main concern is to get the account paid off as soon as possible. I was able to get client the help he was looking for by setting him up on the debt management program.
