Credit Card Companies to Lose $100 Billion Over Debit Card Usage

We finally have a victory over the credit card companies and
even though it may only be a small step, it’s going to cost them $100 bill per
year because of the pandemic.

I’m talking about the fact that consumers are using their
debt cards more than credit right now and it’s costing the cc companies a lot
of money – try a whopping $100 bill, as I mentioned.

So while they’ve been cutting our limits and closing out
cards and approving fewer consumers for new accounts like they’re our parents
punishing us for coming home late, we’re slowly pushing back – but in a very
big way!

Debit card volume went up 12%, while cc volume declined by
21% in May – that’s a big hit and it’s because of the fear of being in debt
during the pandemic, according to a visa executive.

This is similar to the 2008 financial crisis, the 2018 gov’t
shutdown and the initial clashes from the trade war with China when the stock
market took a big dip.

This is exactly what I was talking about when I said invest
in yourself, because just as the great Warren Buffett said, you can’t go through
life paying 18% . Most high-apr credit cards are around 29% so fi you can, take
his advice and pay off your cc’s because all you’re doing is putting money in the
banks pockets instead of your own.

So let’s take this victory and continue to push back,
continue to keep our eyes on the  big
stuff – house, car, etc. – instead of worrying about the small crap like credit
cards that don’t really make that big of a difference in our lives and make us

Remember, the biggest revenge is success.

Is a credit sweep the same thing as claiming identity theft?

Is a credit sweep the same thing as claiming identity theft? No, it's not. Most consumers have the wrong idea about what a credit sweep is and believe the 2 are the same but I'm here to clear this up for you! Identity theft: This is where you claim that all (or a few) items are resulting from identity theft and you attempt to get them blocked using section 605B of the FCRA within 4 business days. You must use an official police report and affidavit. Here's the DL on this: it doesn't work. Why? Because millions of consumers used this illegally even thought the debts actually belonged to them and now, even if you ARE a victim, it's almost impossible to get it done in 4 business days. A few months? Sure, if you have all the required documentation, dispute with the creditors as well and have supporting documentation. IF this method is used (either by the consumer or a credit repair company - with or without the consumer's knowledge), the items w
