Getting Michael back to financial health.
Michael owed $17,000 to various credit companies, including his credit card, overdraft, and various store credit cards. While all the items were in collections, we were contacted by the collection agency dealing with his largest debt of $8,000.
His debts were a result of an illness.
When we spoke to Michael, he told us he had an illness 10 months previously that prevented him from working. During that time, he needed to use his credit cards to survive. Now healthy and back to work, Michael was ready to pay his debts but he needed some help to make it a more manageable process.
Approval. Negotiation. Settlement.
During Michael’s application, he provided his income amount and pay period frequency. We also looked at his credit bureau and how he’s spent his earnings over the last 90 days. Michael was approved and his LM Credit expert began negotiating his debts to the lowest amount possible. We confirmed with his creditors that cumulatively we could clear everything up for $9,547.89—if we paid that same day. His file was submitted to our underwriting team and 20-minutes later he was granted the loan and Michael’s bills were paid that day.
Consolidated and back on track.
With just one bi-weekly payment and his bills instantly paid, Michael saw an immediate positive jump in his credit score. He also benefited from our reporting program, helping his credit score continue to grow month after month. Michael’s credit score will be completely rehabilitated in 2 years, ensuring he can go into the bank and get any financial product he wishes.
