Beware of High Cost Predatory Lenders

Beware of Credit Offers Aimed at Recent Bankruptcy Filers

Avoid High Cost Predatory Lenders

Don’t assume that because you filed bankruptcy you will have to get credit on the worst terms.  If you can’t get credit on decent terms right after bankruptcy, it may be better to wait.  Most lenders will not hold the bankruptcy against you if after a few years you can show that you have avoided problems and can manage your debts.
