You can avoid becoming the victim of a foreclosure scam

If you're facing the possibility of foreclosure because you've gotten behind on your mortgage payments, you may be willing to consider any option that will let you keep your home. Unfortunately, there are a lot of unscrupulous people out there who prey on people who are in this position with foreclosure scams that make money for them. They may charge large "service fees" or even trick people into signing over their homes.

Bankruptcy, snowball or avalanche: Which is right for you?

Taking a look at your finances can be a real wake-up call. Some people don't realize just how deep in debt they are until they gather all the bills into one place. When they compare the debt to their income and add in their normal bills, such as rent or mortgage payments, they realize that they can't possibly make everything work while making headway on the credit-based payments.

What is 'zombie debt?'

No, "zombie debt" does not refer to the credit card balances owed by characters on The Walking Dead. It's debt that is, like zombies, dead. It's no longer owed. That may be because the statute of limitations for collecting it has passed, it's been discharged in bankruptcy or it's already been paid off.
