WLC keeps results of investigation into credit card use a secret
News from Nashua Telegraph:

WILTON – Rather than allow residents to review the results of a publicly funded analysis of spending on the school district credit card, the Wilton-Lyndeborough Cooperative School Board decided to seal an attorney’s report for up to 50 years.

The school board accepted Superintendent Trevor Ebel’s resignation during a nonpublic session Tuesday night. Ebel resigned amid the review of credit card expenses for such things as meals, movies, alcohol and limousines.

School board Chairman Geoff Brock called upon the 35 people in the audience to “trust the people you’ve elected. I think we have some very good, dedicated people.”

The financial analysis by attorney Dean Eggert was requested after an audit of school district expenditures turned up questionable expenses charged to the school district credit card, which was in Ebel’s possession and had his name on it.

A Telegraph review of credit card receipts charged to the district’s Citizens Bank credit card found charges for $ 200-per-night suites and meal tabs of up to almost $ 900. During one trip to San Francisco, Ebel signed two receipts for limousines on the card, one for $ 170 and one for $ 145.

OCALA – A man arrested in early April on charges of grand theft after reportedly forging checks was arrested Friday on two counts each of fraudulent use of a credit card, criminal use of personal identification and theft of a credit card.

On April 3, Glenn Gerard Kuntz, 50, was arrested by sheriff’s detective Greg Spicher for more than 50 counts of uttering a false instrument and forgery, residential burglary, grand theft and dealing in stolen property after he admitted breaking into a woman’s home and stealing checks, which he forged and cashed.

Kuntz was released the next day on $ 64,000 bond, paid by an aunt.

He was charged Friday by Spicher with stealing credit cards from two aunts, including the one who bailed him out.

Spicher said the man’s aunts complained about unauthorized charges on their credit cards – $ 613.74 on one and $ 450 on another – so they began investigating.

He said Kuntz was seen on surveillance video entering Lowes at 7575 SW 90th St., where he purchased items with credit cards, concealing the name on each one with his thumb.

During an interview Friday, Kuntz told Spicher he took his aunts’ cards, bought items with them and pawned the items at separate shops, then bought cr…………… continues on Ocala

National Debt Relief Group Offers Consumers Credit Card Debt Relief Options
News from Sacramento Bee:

/PRNewswire/ — Nationalrelief.com wants to make it easy for anyone to get the debt help they need. Filling out a simple form can get consumers connected to programs customized for their needs. The application is quick, easy and secure. Best of all, it is easy and comes with no obligation.

Consumers who are dealing with credit card debt should consider debt settlement over bankruptcy or a debt consolidation loan. Settling those credit card debts can save the average consumer 50 percent off their principal balances.

Failure to pay credit card bills on time can result in constant contact from creditors. Constant phone calls, letters and harassing messages are often reported by debtors. Consolidating debt through settlement or arbitration can end the creditor harassment. Debtors who use a debt relief service to settle their debts will no longer be contacted by creditors.

Instead, the creditors will be contacting the debt relief service directly. This can lift a heavy burden off those who are struggling with debt. Legal actions may also be halted once a debtor enters a credit relief program. The focus should be on repaying as much of the debt as possible as opposed to litigation.

Those who opt for…………… continues on Sacramento Bee

Sid: I am not sure how I will manage to pay this huge bill. It’s over R1 lakh now. And the company charges an interest rate of 40% per annum.
