I am a bill collector. What a lot of people forget is that what we do is our job. We do not come to your office and cuss you out because you wanted an 8:00 meeting. Under the FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act) we are legally allowed to call from 8:00 am until 9:00 pm your local time.
Hi Scott, I recently heard you on NPR radio 90.9 FM WBUR from Boston. I was interested in how you borrowed from your credit card at a low interest rate and then invested it in a CD and earned about $1800. Which of your books covers that interesting topic? I'd like to know more! Thanks, Leo
Scott, I'm so lost! I'm about to obtain my first credit card, and I do not know where to start or even how many to take out. What deal is the best? Do I look at the APR or the nice rewards they have? I'm just trying to establish a good credit history, because I am aware that you need one if you want to eventually buy a house/car. Thanks so much for your help. Meri
