Your Options If The Debt Is Affordable

So you’re constantly being harassed with calls from 8002858585, and you’re wondering about the steps you can take to repay your debt.

Obviously, you can make your payments to clear your debt, but there’s more to that.

In this type of situation, the best way to approach the issue is to call or chat with the bank’s customer support and try and cut out a deal with them. You should request that they wave either/both interest and the late fee. I tried this method with one of my banks; my bank agreed to wave both interest and fees after tendering my request on their customer care Chat support. We all make mistakes, and banks also know that everyone is susceptible to mistakes.

Your Option If The Debt is Unaffordable

Everyone wants to be in a financial situation where we can afford to meet up with debt payments, but sometimes financial hardship makes that wish impossible. So what option do you have to clear your debt?

Ask US Bank for Assistance

The raging effect of Covid-19 is felt around the world, so before making a request for debt relief, just take a peep at the financial help that US bank offers to those in financial hardship. Here’s US Bank’s website detailing the offers available for those in financial hardship.

Getting 3-4 calls daily from an unwanted source is pretty frustrating. When you’re faced with the choice of paying rent, paying for utilities, or your kid’s tuition, you will settle those bills before paying your debt.

The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) allows debtors to request that creditors cease communicating with you irrespective of your debt status.

Here’s a template that you can use to make such a request:

Thanks for your calls. In accordance with my right according to the FCRA, kindly desist from communicating with me on the number henceforth either by texting, writing, phone call, or any other means. In case you need that in writing per the guidelines, kindly let me know where I can send this communication.
