Old phone bill is hurting my credit

Post by Larrykudlow » Thu May 26, 2016 8:38 am

I just had a couple questions. My truck was just recently totaled by someone who hit it while I was sleeping and I am currently trying to get a loan to get a vehicle but I have a couple things stopping me. I have an old AT&T phone bill for about $1700 on my credit that someone got on my credit. So if someone could give me a call it would be great. Thanks and have a great day.

While not really meant for old phone bills, there is a Lifeline telephone bill assistance programs in Virginia here. https://www.needhelppayingbills.com/htm ... ogram.html
Maybe it can help you. As far as the credit being hurt, try a credit repair service. There are many options out there, many being free for low income families.

Hi my name is Mercedes. I'm a single mother of young children all boys. 7-5-4-8 months. I need help to pay a credit so I can be able to have a place to rent. My lease ends in July 25 and an old phone bill really hurt my credit scores. I'm really scared because I’ve been denied and time is running out. I do have a job but it's not enough. I really need help. If I can get help to pay the credit its 1600 dollars. I don't have that. I burly have enough for rent, daycare, my phone and bus passes and my lunch. And other house hold items. Please if there's any help before I become homeless with 4 children. It's getting hotter outside.

Maybe cancel your current phone service and try using free telephones from the government. As they offer plans in combination with AT&T, Safeline, and other carriers. As far as the credit issue, seek counseling. And have 4 kids when single and clearly financially unstable with significant issues you need to make major life changes as your kids are being punished for your bad life choices.
