Debt reduction, uhmm, well ...

August 2nd, 2006 at 09:16 pm

I had taken $25.00 out of my check this month to go towards debt reduction.

I'm still waiting to hear from Blair so I can start paying on that bill.

Money was still in my checking account and today I couldn't take seeing all of those hurting people in Lebanon anymore who've had to flee there homes, etc.,

so I donated the $25.00 to Samaritan's Purse in order to help those people who, especially right now - have far less than I do.

That is not to say that I don't believe that Israel has a right to defend herself, because I believe that they do [this is my own opinion here],

but that really is neither here nor there,

those people who've been driven from their homes and cities need help now and if I could even help a little with the 25 dollars, then I am glad that I did.

For anyone else, if you'd like to donate to this cause,

you can go to http://www.samaritanspurse.org

Maybe by next month, Blair will have contacted me and I can get on track with paying my debts down some. Smile

Debt #2 - Blair Corporation

July 19th, 2006 at 09:27 am

Since GPU is now paid in full [due to the account being too old for them to collect on] ...

I then contacted the next, what I think is smallest debt.

It is for Blair Corporation and I have no idea how much the balance is on that account but do know that the lady said the account is from 1996.

I tried to make payment arrangements on it but the lady said that she has to contact the main billing office and they will get in touch with me.

She [the lady I talked to] did not know how much the bill is for so said I'll have to wait to get a letter in the mail about it.

For now, my debt reduction plan is put on hold until I hear from them.

I will then, as soon as I get the information - start making payments on this bill and then when that's paid,

I'll go from there to the next smallest debt owed.

Debt - What a nice surprise!

Today I finally made a phone call to GPU [Penelec] for an outstanding bill of $240.70.

I wanted to start making payments on this to get it paid [because it's the right thing to do.]

GPU said that they no longer own the account and that they can't collect on accounts over 4 years old.

I asked the guy why and he said something or other about because of legal reason.

Then he gave me the phone number for the collection company that they had sold the account to.

I called them and they said that they don't have the account anymore and for me to call GPU about it.

That wouldn't do any good because the guy I talked to there was insistent that they aren't allowed to collect on the account any longer [since it is over 4 years old.]

Hmmm ... well, Praise the Lord, that is one debt that has been taken care of and I would guess that it is now considered paid in full.

I made an attempt to pay it and since no one seems to own the account anymore and the electric company can't accept money on it

[which is way weird, don't you think?!!] ...

Anyways, I guess this debt would be now considered paid in full!
