Consumers can choose credit or debit on one card
News from Debtmerica Relief:

When consumers choose to pay for a purchase with their debit card, they are usually asked, “Debit or credit?” But the choice doesn’t make much of a difference, except in the way the consumer verifies it – by PIN or signature.

But now, one major U.S. financial institution is launching a card that will make the choice matter, according to a report from the Associated Press. Fifth Third Bank, which is well known throughout the Midwest and Southern U.S. and based in Cincinnati, Ohio, will soon launch its new Duo MasterCard, which allows consumers to load not only their debit card information onto the plastic, but also link…………… continues on Debtmerica Relief

Nine Steps to Take if Your Credit Card Data is Hacked
News from Fox Business:

What can you do if your credit card information is stolen because some third-party company got hacked?

It’s an important question to ask, especially given how frequently credit card data breaches make headlines. The latest: In August, Citi and Bank of America reportedly closed some customers’ credit and debit card accounts, respectively, because of data security failures involving retailers. This was just a few months after Citi announced that its database had been hacked, giving thieves access to thousands of Citi cardholder’s records and leading to nearly $ 3 million in losses.

South Dakota Rep. Kristi Noem reports thousands in credit card debt
News from In-Forum:

Rep. Kristi Noem, R-S.D., shows between $ 20,000 and $ 30,000 in credit card debt on the asset disclosure form she filed this month with the U.S. House of Representatives.

Noem spokesman Josh Shields said the Noem family has “eliminated” all of the credit card debt reported on the form, which covers calendar year 2010. The debt has either been paid off or rolled into a small-business loan, he said.

“The family had recently purchased their insurance company, so like a lot of South Dakota small businesses and entrepreneurs, they incurred some small-business debt as they purchased that company and got it off the ground,” Shields said. “They put some of that debt on credit cards as a short-term means.”

Noem’s report also shows that Noem and her husband, Bryon, have between $ 500,000 and $ 1 million in loans for Noem Family Insurance Inc. in Bryant.

That business was formed in 2010 with the intent of purchasing Community Insurance LLC. The purchase was made and th…………… continues on In-Forum

Money Monday: Can’t Pay It All? Negotiate a Debt Settlement
News from BET:

Along with details of your love life, salary and health problems, credit card debt ranks as one of the top things people say they are very or somewhat unlikely to talk openly about with someone they just met.

One person who is not hesitant to talk about the money you owe is a debt collector. Fortunately, even if you owe a large sum, a debt collector may agree to let you pay less than the full amount of your debt.

Even when a large sum of money may be owed, a creditor will almost always negotiate a debt or settle for some payment over nothing, when it comes to outstanding debt.

Inquiry into WeHo’s Credit Card use sharpens
News from WeHo News:

WeHo News and local activists have obtained the second packet of documents pertaining to election-eve charges of city credit card misuse requested by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Bureau of Fraud and Corruption prosecutions Public Integrity Division’s inquiry, and the pattern of investigations seems to have focused sharply – on an unintended target.

On March 4, pointing to records dated March–December 2010 showing over $ 13,000 spent on employee lunches and meals – 19 of which were purchased at the priciest restaurants in West Hollywood by incumbent Mayor and candidate John Heilman’s deputy Fran Solomon – John D’Amico called for an internal city investigation into “scratch my back dollars.”

Switch Banks NOW: Here’s How

I’m going to go Don Draper on you guys for a second: There was a time… long ago… when a man didn’t fear his bank; his bank feared him. It aimed to please him, and both parties got something they couldn’t get on their own.

Grizzlies coach’s credit card use was quickly reimbursed
News from Fairbanks Daily News-Miner:
FAIRBANKS—When Robert Fuller revealed he wouldn’t be coming back to coach the Fairbanks Grizzlies next season, he also made allegations about money he thinks he’s owed by the Grizzlies, according to his contract.

In an article in Thursday’s News-Miner, Fuller said when “things were tough, (he) stepped up and covered or contributed to (the) player payroll out of (his) own pocket when (the organization) didn’t have the money so (the) players wouldn’t be distracted with pay issues.”

He also said in the article that he used his personal credit card to rent vans and cover gas on road trips.

The Fairbanks Grizzlies don’t dispute that Fuller’s credit card was used on road trips, but what Fuller didn’t mention was that the Grizzlies deposited money into his account before the team left, and those are the funds that were used. The Grizzl…………… continues on Fairbanks Daily News-Miner

Answer: Years ago, the credit scores of children would improve if they were an authorized user on their parent’s accounts. The rules changed, eliminating this benefit; recently, the rules changed back and created the benefit once again.

Children who are authorized users will get points added to their FICO score, although not as many as in years past. Once the authorized user relationship is established, it will be reflected on your son’s cr…………… continues on Arizona Republic

Business Credit Card Debt Set to Rise?
News from Fox Business:

FICO, the company behind the nation’s most popular (no, wait: the nation’s most widely used) credit scoring system, recently commissioned a survey of of 272 risk managers at banks. 

It’s hard to conceive of a more tedious task than holding a conversation with any “professional risk manager,” let alone one employed in the American banking sector, but someone has to do it. 

Anyway, the survey’s findings did contain some interesting facts.

Business credit card use likely to rise

When asked whether they expected demand for credit from small businesses to grow in the next six months, 74% of respondents said yes. But only 46% thought that the supply of credit to those small businesses would increase. That’s quite a shortfall, and bigger than the one FICO found when it posed the same questions to bank risk managers in Europe. (Who’d have thought it?

CARD Act Doesn’t Protect Your Business Credit Card

CARD Act Doesn’t Protect Your Business Credit Card
News from ActiveFilings.com:

When Congress enacted the CARD Act, legislation that protected consumers from unfair treatment by credit card companies, Washington was praised for enacting real world legislation that would have effects that would be felt by anybody using a credit card but does the CARD Act protect small businesses? The answer is simple: It does not and this has some small business owners upset.

Small business credit card use has gone up sharply since the economy softened in 2008. It is now reported that 80% of small businesses use credit cards as part of their day to day operations. As a small business owner or somebody who plans to open a business remember that businesses large and small who over leveraged themselves are many of the businesses who have closed their doors.

This is where the problem lies. The CARD Act doesn’t protect businesses from sudden interest rate changes. With as little as 45 days notice, a credit card company can raise your business…………… continues on ActiveFilings.com

In May, Visa and Google announced separately their plans to offer a so-called digital wallet or an application that stores credit card and rewards information to enable people to use their phones to pay for things.

The hope is that these digital wallets in conjunction with near-field communications technology, a short-range wireless technology that allows people to swipe a phone for payment, will replace the need for a physical wallet.

News from TheStreet.com:

NEW YORK (MainStreet) — No doubt about it, debit card usage is a big part of the new normal on Main Street these days as consumers try to manage credit card debt.

According to the TSYS & Mercator Advisory Group Debit Survey 2011, debit is now the preferred payment type in most point-of-sale locations, beating cash, credit cards and checks. But that doesn’t mean you should use debit cards all the time. In fact, there are some places and times using a debit card is actually a lousy proposition.
