Some debts are taken on willingly by those who must bear them. For example, some New Yorkers are comfortable acquiring loans for buying homes or cars, while others use financing to pay for their educational pursuits. Debts incurred from mortgages, vehicles, and student loans are often anticipated, and the individuals who hold them are generally prepared to manage their repayments.
However, some debts are seemingly acquired without the intentions of the debt holders. When a person loses their job and still must make ends meet, they may rely on their credit cards to buy food, pay the utilities, and manage their other day-to-day needs while their cash flow is lean. Unexpected expenses such as medical bills can also force individuals to use and rely on their credit accounts, and, sometimes, these very unfortunate situations cause card holders to experience the overwhelming problem of credit card debt.
The problem with credit card debt is that it can grow rapidly and become unwieldy without warning. Once a debt is built, it can be difficult to pay down when the balance is subjected to high interest rates and unattainable monthly payments. Though credit card companies must abide by the terms of the CARD Act and that law does provide consumers with some protections, credit card holders can lose faith in their abilities to become credit card debt free.
