I’m willing to pay 20 percent interest over 18 years. I am gainfully employed and just need immediate help to stem late payment fees and high interest rates. Would happily sign contract and even agree to direct deposit. I have a fully legitimate job which has a human resources department that can take care of the paperwork. I am not asking for any of your financial information. Just a guy in need of help. These are not gambling debts. They are all college and car loans and a small percentage of credit card debt. If you can afford it, I would really appreciate the assistance. Thanks.
The “economic slowdown” continues.
