Re: where to begin

Having the daughter make the payments could be arranged between the OP and her daughter, but the OP would need to ensure payments were made every month in any case, if she did not want her credit report impacted.

Re: where to begin

Great Lakes not sure what min pay will be. I will start getting statements in Jan 2015- I have been paying 100/mo.

Re: Poll: Survival: Should you tip your YMCA/Church

Re: Trust In God

A lot of good has been done by religious people for the poor in this country and historically.
