Is Consolidation an Option for Credit Card Debt?
News from Fox Business:

Dear Debt Adviser,
I have around $ 17,000 in credit card debt and an unsecured personal loan. Two of the cards have high interest, 29%, while the other two cards are at 13%. The interest on the loan is 17%. My available credit on the lower-APR cards isn’t high enough to consolidate onto one card. I am considering going to a
debt consolidation company to help reduce my monthly payments, which are increasingly hard to pay. I’d like a second opinion. What would you suggest?

Farmington woman indicted on credit card fraud charge
News from Foster’s Daily Democrat:

ROCHESTER — A Farmington woman was indicted recently on a fraudulent use of a credit card charge, after she allegedly used another person’s credit card to make online purchases for several months.

Ami Marshall, 35, of 6 Smith Court, was indicted on the Class B felony charge on Nov. 17 by a grand jury.

The indictment alleges that Marshall used another person’s TD Bank credit card to make more than $ 1,500 worth of online purchases through unauthorized use, between April 1, 2010 and June 13, 2010.

He said the alleged credit card fraud was brought to the police’s attention by the alleged victim, who appears to be related to Marshall.

Marshall was arrested for fraudulent use of a credit card on Sep. 1, 2011, after an investigation that lasted about a y…………… continues on Foster’s Daily Democrat

Identity theft hit 8.6 million households in 2010, according to a report issued a few days ago by the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics, and a big chunk of the rise in ID theft over the past several years is the misappropriation of credit card accounts.

The misuse of existing credit card accounts made up 54 percent of identity theft victimizations, according to BJS.

Our increasingly tech-oriented world is presenting new and interesting ways for criminals to swipe data. The golden oldies are still there — crooked employees who skim card data or download customer credit files, scroungers who pilfer mail or discarded receipts — but computer- and smartpho…………… continues on Times Herald-Record
