Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) May 2, 2008
Earlier this month, the Federal Reserve released the G-19 Consumer Credit report, showing that consumer credit has increased at an annual rate of 2.5%; however, the real eyebrow raiser is the dramatic increase in revolving credit (like credit card debt), which increased at an annual rate of 6%, bringing outstanding revolving totals to $951 billion, or $2,540 of credit card debt for every man, woman and child in the United States. This is aside from the $1.5 trillion in non-revolving credit, like auto loans, which equates to an additional $4,984 debt per person, and represents a .6% increase. As Americans stretch every dollar, a new website hits the Net that is dedicated to raising credit scores and lowering the interest rates available to today's struggling consumer.
This is particularly important as the current economic downturn forces record numbers of Americans to carry larger balances on their credit cards, using this revolving credit to bridge the gap between paycheck dollars simply to make ends meet, oftentimes not able to meet monthly payment requirements and stressing even previously healthy credit scores.
Pair all of this with softer retail sales, higher debt levels and lower home equity levels and the result is a shaky foundation for economic growth, making now the time to get personal finances in order.
For many Americans, this means working to pay down this credit card debt or f ix credit to increase a credit score that is too low to qualify for credit or loans at a reasonable interest rate.
Yet, many people do not understand their credit score. And even fewer know that resources exist to help with credit report repair, and there are legitimate ways to remove questionable credit listings that are untimely or unverifiable, and to remove judgments or delete judgments altogether, effectively helping to raise credit scores, and even side-step bankruptcy.
Individuals battling credit score issues can consult a financial planner and develop ways to reduce your own credit card debt, working within the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), which grants consumer's rights to factual credit reporting, or turn to the Net's top online credit repair team, which boasts the legal removal of more than 3 million items including: collections, late payments, charge offs, liens, bankruptcies, repossessions, foreclosures, and judgments.
What's more, there is also a [Free Credit Report that anyone can access, which details the nitty-gritty of credit scores, explaining how credit is assessed and scored, how this overall credit score is looked at by lenders and credit card companies, and how credit scores can be raised and protected from identity theft, making it an invaluable resource for anyone.
