    CreditHavins | What is Credilife?

    in Business

    The credit repair industry is growing but what is the most consistent message you see from these companies? Well without you even realizing it, they are promoting dispute services. Disputing potentially inaccurate or no longer valid information being reported by the major credit bureaus Equifax, Experian or TransUnion. Now this part of the credit repair path is important but there are so many people who still fail to hit their goals. Why is that? It is because they lack the education on what they need to be doing proactively to improve their FICO credit scores based on the FICO algorithm while also positioning their credit profile in the right light to achieve their credit related goals. This includes money management, student loan consolidation or refinancing, lowering interest rates, paying down specific revolving accounts, etc. THIS is why we believe in providing education to approach your credit improvement process holistically. We need to encompass all aspects of your current situation, what needs to be done to improve it, and ultimately hit your goal. Credilife is about improving your life through credit & financial freedom! Through informed decisions! Coaching!

    Paige McKay Kubik- The Executive Director of Frazer Center

    in Women

    The Frazer Center is an inclusive community where people at all levels of ability and disability gather, learn and flourish together. 

    This is the backstory of The Frazer Center- The life of a young couple is often the stuff of dreams: the places they may live, the journeys they may take, the children they may have. In 1948, this was the story for one of our founding families, the Lanes.

    Their lives took an unexpected turn, however, when their daughter was born with cerebral palsy. Together with their dear friends the Frazers, the Lanes searched for a program for their daughter. Feeling frustrated and saddened by what they saw, they created the Cerebral Palsy School for six children at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in 1949. Two years later, the Frazers and Lanes were able to acquire the former estate of Cator Woolford (founder of the Retail Credit Company, now Equifax), thirty-nine acres located in the heart of Druid Hills. Renamed REACH in 1989 and The Frazer Center in 1999, our historic mission to offer research-based education, vocational support, and therapeutic intervention to children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families is still the heart of our work today. Tune in and suppport Frazer Center

    "the daily complaint"

    Every weekday we answer client complaints on The Daily Complaint to provide direction and resources for both the person complaining as well as other consumers experiencing similar issues whether it be mortgage fraud, loan servicing escrow issues, loan modification runarounds or denials, short sale refusals, deed in lieu negotiations and credit card debt collector abuses and fraud violations.

    I routinely look for posts to answer in hopes that it will not only bring optimism to those homeowners and borrowers in distress but also some basic information to assist in fighting the banks that are "too big to fail" like Bank of America and Citi but yet don't appreciate the bailout that we provided in their time of need.  The debt collectors like Ocwen and Nationstar are simply just piranhas but they can be beat at their own game too just like the big banks can be defeated.  

    We are committed to answering consumer complaints and addressing everyday credit and debt issues on The Daily Complaint and I thank you for your continued support!

    We hope you enjoy the Show...
