The main parking garage for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New Hampshire only accepts credit cards, reports Credit Slips.
Consumer debtors receiving a bankruptcy have to attend various meetings in the building. Also, to get a bankruptcy discharge, they may need a credit card.
Of the debtor’s interviewed as part of the Consumer Bankruptcy Project, over 92 percent said they received a credit card offer in the mail afterwards.
The problem is that the only creditors who are going to give someone with a bankruptcy on their record are going to set usurious terms, owing to their bad credit history.
We’re all for personal financial responsibility, but to expect a bankruptcy receiver to have the discipline to resist using a bad card smacks of out and out victimization.
Writes Credit Slips, “Should Chapter 7 debtors accept one of the dozens of credit card offers they get in the first month of their bankruptcy or should they walk, bike, snowmobile, etc to the bankruptcy court?”
