Debt Advisers Direct have warned that the squeeze on incomes could become tighter in the coming months

Debt Advisers Direct have responded to findings that Britons’ disposable incomes have fallen by nearly 30% on average in the past two years, warning that the pressure on incomes could increase as the economic crisis progresses, and have advised consumers to take care of any debts as soon as possible.

Responding to research by Abbey Credit Cards claiming that British citizens have seen their disposable income fall by nearly 30% during the past two years,Debt Advisers Direct have warned that the squeeze on incomes could become tighter in the coming months, and have advised consumers to take care of any financial issues, especially outstanding debts, as soon as possible.

According to the research, the average household now has only 25% – around £382 – of their monthly income left after essential costs such as mortgage payments and energy bills have been paid.

That figure is down from £541 in disposable income available to British households just two years ago – a 29% fall.

The research also claims that one in ten spend 90% of their income on bills and other essential costs, leaving only 10% as disposable income.

On average, British households were spending 7.4% of their total income on repaying debts, not including mortgages, the research claimed.

Meanwhile, an average 24% went towards mortgage or rent payments, 17% on household bills, 16% on food, and 8% on transport costs.

British incomes have been put under pressure on two fronts throughout the economic crisis, with costs of living such as energy bills and food prices rising rapidly, and the credit crunch limiting access to additional funds in the form of loans and mortgages.

The effects have been tangible, with overall retail sales gradually declining over the year, and profits for ‘budget stores’ increasing – a sign that consumers’ perceived priorities are shifting as their disposable incomes shrink.

An expert from Debt Advisers Direct said: “Many people consider disposable income a luxury that can be spent on ‘unnecessary’ items, but it’s important to remember that disposable income is also a very important buffer against unexpected rises in outgoings.

“For example, if someone depends on their car to get to work, and they have to pay for a £500 repair with only £200 disposable income, that person could be forced into debt in order to make ends meet. That’s why it’s important for people to minimise their outgoings, and make savings where possible.

“The overall situation has become worse over the past year because costs of living, especially energy prices have risen so quickly. Food and other retail products are now falling in price, but energy prices have shown no sign of doing the same – and this continues to push more people towards debt.”

The Debt Advisers Direct spokesperson added that there are a number of debt solutions that can help to minimise outgoings when finances are limited.

“For people with multiple debts, a debt consolidation loan can be spread out across a longer period of time than the original debts, meaning monthly payments are lower,” she said. “Interest rates can also be reduced, especially when consolidating high-APR debts such as credit cards. However if the debt is repaid over a longer period, the additional interest from this can counteract some of the savings made.

“For debts that are becoming unmanageable, a debt management can help. It involves arranging to repay creditors in smaller amounts, based on how much the person in debt can afford, over a longer period of time.

“As always, we advise anyone looking to tackle their debts to seek professional debt advice beforehand.”

While drinking my morning coffee I came across another one of these one way stories bashing Credit Repair

Its a pretty hard thing to do, ruining my morning coffee that is, but ABC news got me today! From the way this story reads it would appear that someone over at ABC owns stock in Trans Union, Equifax, and Experian. The story can be found here http://abcnews.go.com/Business/PersonalFinance/Story?id=6058693&page=1

I planned on doing an upbeat release today seeing as the cost of a gallon of gas has went down below $3.00, But once again the Doom Sayers force me to defend our industry.

I must say that the most appauling anti-consumer comment I have ever seen was part of this article “It’s ironic. People who are too strapped to pay their bills somehow scrape together enough money to pay a credit repair company.” Wow Elisabeth Leamy of ABC thats pretty harsh. I will go as far to say that it is an UnAmerican comment and goes against that whole Pursuit of Happiness thing that my country, The United States of America, belives in. It almost seems as if ABC and Elisabeth Leamy are unaware of the fact that according to the US PIRG over 79% of Credit Reports contain errors.

See it here: http://static.uspirg.org/usp.asp?id2=13649&id3=USPIRG

It sounds like ABC and Elisabeth Leamy would like to have us belive that seeking help from a professional is out of the question and illegal. Well, if that is the case, why do we have a law called the CROA?

See it here: http://www.ftc.gov/os/statutes/croa/croa.shtm

As a matter of fact I would like to quote the opening sentence of the CROA for the benefit of ABC and Elisabeth Leamy:

“(a) Findings.–The Congress makes the following findings:

(1) Consumers have a vital interest in establishing and maintaining their credit worthiness and credit standing in order to obtain and use credit. As a result, consumers who have experienced credit problems may seek assistance from credit repair organizations which offer to improve the credit standing of such consumers.”

Wow did everyone read the same thing I did? Sounds to me like the United States Congress says that consumers who have experienced credit problems may use credit repair. And all this from the FTC website! But wait a minute, ABC and Elisabeth Leamy just told us that the FTC says there are no legit Credit Repair Companies out there. So why would they put this on the FTC website? Perhaps ABC and Elisabeth Leamy should get the facts together and write an unbiased report on both sides of the story.

Oh and by the way ABC and Elisabeth Leamy if your reading this, by some miracle of god. Please read this press release, sent to all major news feeds, and tell me that we are all bad then.



I will once again, for the benefit of ABC and Elisabeth Leamy, announce that if you have been victimized by one of these Bad Credit Repair companies you can get free help from us. All you need to provide us with is a copy of the complaint filed with the FTC and local authorities if applicable, and we will work with you for free. Tell me ABC and Elisabeth Leamy, do those sound like the words of a non-legit company?

I am going to end this release with some final quotes from the FCRA, this should give ABC and Elisabeth Leamy a beter idea of how the laws regarding credit reporting really work.

Quotes from the FCRA
“There is a need to insure that consumer reporting agencies exercise their grave responsibilities with fairness, impartiality, and a respect for the consumer’s right to privacy.”

“(b) Accuracy of report. Whenever a consumer reporting agency prepares a consumer report it shall follow reasonable procedures to assure maximum possible accuracy of the information concerning the individual about whom the report relates.”

“(E) a statement that a consumer reporting agency is not required to remove accurate derogatory information from the file of a consumer, unless the information is outdated under section 605 or cannot be verified”

“(5) Treatment of Inaccurate or Unverifiable Information
(A) In general. If, after any reinvestigation under paragraph (1) of any information disputed by a consumer, an item of the information is found to be inaccurate or incomplete or cannot be verified, the consumer reporting agency shall–

(i) promptly delete that item of information from the file of the consumer,or modify that item of information, as appropriate, based on the resultsof the reinvestigation; and 

(ii) promptly notify the furnisher of that information that the information has been modified or deleted from the file of the consumer.

(B) Requirements Relating to Reinsertion of Previously Deleted Material
(i) Certification of accuracy of information. If any information is deleted from a consumer’s file pursuant to subparagraph (A), the information may not be reinserted in the file by the consumer reporting agency unless the person who furnishes the information certifies that the information is complete and accurate.
(ii) Notice to consumer. If any information that has been deleted from a consumer’s file pursuant to subparagraph (A) is reinserted in the file, the consumer reporting agency shall notify the consumer of the reinsertionin writing not later than 5 business days after the reinsertion or, if authorized by the consumer for that purpose, by any other means available to the agency.”

Thank You and God Bless America

There Are Many Myths About Credit Repair Some True Some Not We Will Attempt To Try And Clear Those Up Here

As a large Credit Repair Company, We feel the pain of negative press every day. So in an effort to help many consumers that could in fact benefit from Credit Repair we are going to address many of the myths that are out there about Credit Repair.

Myth #1 Credit Repair is Illegal.

The truth: Credit Repair is in fact so legal that congress passed a law called the Credit Repair Organization Act or CROA it can be viewed herehttp://www.ftc.gov/os/statutes/croa/croa.shtm

Myth #2 Credit Repair Companies are all scams

The truth: Many Credit Repair companies in fact are very good and reputable companies as in all professions a few bad apples have given the rest a bad name. In fact our company Revolution Credit Solutions Inc. has offered our services Pro Bono to victims of these bad companies. See press release here http://express-press-release.net/53/Revolution%20Credit%20Solutions…

Myth #3 Anything a Credit Repair Company can do for you, You can do for yourself.

The truth: While you can certainly dispute items on your own, many consumers lack the knowledge about the laws in place to protect them from unfair credit reporting. Many Credit Repair Companies have an extensive knowledge of these laws and the requirements imposed on the CRA’s by them. So, while self help is certainly possible, Credit Repair is not an easy task especially in unexperienced hands. For those consumers who want a “do it yourself” solution to Credit Repair, the first step is to read the FCRA. You can read it here http://www.ftc.gov/os/statutes/031224fcra.pdf as a matter of fact, everything we do as a Credit Repair Company is done from the FCRA. Unfortunatly for most consumers the law is very hard to interpret, and they are unable to do it them self. That’s where the value of a company like Revolution Credit Solutions Inc. lies. We use no special tricks or tactics. We merely follow the law and request that the consumers creditors and the Credit Bureaus do the same.

Myth #4 Credit Bureaus do a good job of being accurate, so there is no need for Credit Repair Companies.

The Truth: In spite of section 607b of the FCRA which requires the Credit Bureaus to maintain accurate files on consumers. Over 79% of Consumers Credit Reports and thats according to the P.I.R.G. ( Public Interest Research Group) a Government agency. See it here http://static.uspirg.org/usp.asp?id2=13649&id3=USPIRG

Myth #5 Credit Bureaus want to help you fix your credit by providing on line access to your report free and allowing you to dispute items electronically through their system.

The truth: Credit Bureaus make money, and lots of it by reporting and selling information the more information the more money. So by removing inaccurate or unverifiable information the Credit Bureaus lose money. The only reason they allow you to access your report free once a year is because they are forced to by the government, and as to their electronic disputes, they leave much to be desired. All too often the Credit Bureaus will make a great effort to discourage consumers from disputing inaccurate and unverifiable information because not only does it cost them income by removing these items, but they must also pay a full time staff of untold numbers to address these disputes, costing them much more money.

I hope this article has helped you have a better understanding of how a Credit Repair Company can help you in your quest for the American Dream. If you would like more information please contact us at 1-888-852-0005 and we will be happy to answer your questions.

We Have All Seen The Credit Monitoring Commercials With The Funny Jingles, But Do You Know Who Is Behind Them?

Its 1:30 A.M. and your watching your favorite late night program. All of a sudden there are singing pirates telling you that if you are not careful, you will be serving fish to tourists. Sound familiar? So, who is selling you this information that could protect you from being a fish waiter, working for less than minimum wage? Thats right, the same 3 companies that provides it to potetial creditors and employers. Trans Union, Equifax and Experian. So what are they saying with these commercials? Our interpetation is that you better watch out because if you don’t, we will say anything about you we want, no matter if its true or not! And by the way, if you want us to watch your back and protect you from hearsay, it’s going to cost you $29.95 per month.

It seems as if everywhere you turn they are trying to sell you a credit bureau. And why should you even bother checking your credit Trans Union, Equifax, and Experian are supposed to be good companies that follow the rules and only report true and accurate information. Why should you worry? And why are these companies telling you to worry? Because in fact, the information on 79% of Credit Bureaus is innacurate acording to PIRG (Public Interest Research Group) Seriously innacurate enough to cost you a Job or not to be approved for a loan. So what do you do? First of all, don’t pay them a dime. You are entitled by law to a free credit report!

It is the Credit Bureaus responsability to maintain complete and accurate information in their files. (Section 607b of the FCRA) So why dont they do this? Because they are for profit corporations who depend on the negative information for profits. In todays age of technology they could perform regular audits very easily but they dont, Instead they make the consumers do their job for them by requiring them to perform tedious tasks when errors are discovered. This is the reason Credit Repair has become so neccesary for many americans trying to live the American dream. In fact if it wasnt for the good Credit Repair companies out there many consumers would remain victims of this nations broken credit reporting system.

So next time you see one of those funny commercials dont laugh and sing along, feel insulted and hurt because what they are doing is laughing and making fun of the American consumer, and clearly pointing out how faulted our credit reporting system is.

FICO Formula Is A Step-By-Step Blueprint That Explains Is Exact Detail How To Correct And Clear Your Credit

The FICO Formula makes credit repair information available that was once only found through either expensive credit counseling services or by painstaking and lengthy research on behalf of the consumer.

Ann Born should know. She brought her own credit to a pile of ruble in her early twenties and is infamously known in her own family as “the one the Library sent to collections.” This in and of itself does not make Ann Born an authority on credit repair, but the fact that she did raise her credit over 150 points does prove that she does know a bit about credit score repair.

Ann states “If only I had known about The FICO Formula when I started to repair my credit. What took me a good 5-7 years would have been accomplished in 6 months. Having the step-by-step layout as offered in The FICO Formula would have saved me much of my own time and thousands of dollars.”

But don’t let the simple package of The FICO Formula fool you.

Firstly, it is this exact simplicity that makes this product easy to implement. The PDF format and concise guide make for easy reading and understanding.

Secondly, the author doesn’t assume laying down the foundational basics are “beneath you.” This approach then allows the author to delve deeply into the process of credit repair.

Thirdly, The FICO Formula truly delivers when it comes to content. Many credit repair guides offer the basics, but stop short when it comes to explaining “who to call” when you find an error on your report, “what to do” to raise your credit score immediately or “when you need” just 21 more credit points to save yourself over $30,000.

Fourthly, there is an entire grid that lays out whom to contact, in which order, how to do so and what in what time frame to expect a response. This information alone makes TheFICO Formula worth every penny. Not only does it take countless hours to compile a list like this, but each facility must be contacted in order to get a response time. Dealing with government agencies and learning who to talk to and when has been done for you.

Fifthly, almost any question about raising your credit score is answered here. The FICO Formula explains when to take out a personal loan and what to do with it to maximize your credit. It explains thoroughly the best way to use your credit cards to increase your credit rating and when paying off your bills is actually a bad idea.

Ann Born understands that people may hesitate to jump on the chance to get The FICO Formula. For this reason Ann’s giving you a free copy of “5 Ways to Boost Your Credit 100 Points”also by Ryan Taylor at: http://tinyurl.com/6fzmbp. This way you can preview the style and substance of the creator of The FICO Formula.
