corona virus threat

Up-to-the-minute results of our country reopening!

As of this morning there have been more than 1.4 million coronavirus cases in our country. That’s based on the Johns Hopkins University estimate. Approximately 89000 people have passed away in the United States. Major automakers, Chrysler Fiat Jeep, Ford and General Motors are slowly beginning to reopen for business. The stock market was up almost a thousand points today. The market has reason to be hopeful. The reason for this optimism is that pharmaceutical company Moderna, has reported that their first clinical trial has shown that out of 45 people injected with the new vaccine, all 45 developed antibodies that normally only occur in people who have already had the virus. That is incredibly promising news. They’re 45 for 45 independent of the size of the dosage which varied by person. A big start, and phase 3 will start in July. They are optimistically hoping for a year-end vaccine. That’s probably the biggest news of all. Moderna is an United States based company out of Massachusetts. It would be great finding the cure here in the United States. That would reaffirm our greatness in the field of science and make sure that Americans, especially our healthcare workers in America would be inoculated first. So for every positive there’s a negative. isn’t it amazing how good news brings the morons out? The number of vaccinations administered to children in Michigan has dropped by as much as 22% during this pandemic. This report was released today by the CDC. The CDC happened to use Michigan as a case study but it has no bearing on other states in this nation. Why are people not getting their children vaccinated? The answer is pretty simple. It’s not Financial because I know that most states have programs to inoculate children regardless of their parents ability to pay. It has nothing to do with socioeconomic circumstance or the almighty dollar. This is all about the ridiculous anti vaccination groups keep popping up all over the world. I don’t get it. In this case science completely rules. When I was a kid I had to take a polio vaccine. They don’t give those anymore. No more measles or mumps shots either. Why not? Because these diseases have been eradicated from the planet. Is it magic? Did David Blaine make them disappear? Course not. Vaccinations rule. Why do people believe that their children should not be vaccinated? In this case you could lay odds that all these non vaccinators blame the inoculations that people have received throughout the years as the cause of the continuing covid virus. How ridiculous is that?

In other news Georgia has been open for more than 2 weeks now and as yet, there has not been a spike in Corona cases. There are probably two reasons for that and I hope I’m wrong about this. Reason number one could simply be that there’s always a lag between infection and symptoms. Especially symptoms that are bad enough to require seeing a doctor or going to a hospital or taking a test. Now fingers crossed, I’ll say  the other possible reason could possibly be the new way that we’re learning to live. I’m referring to social distancing and no physical touching as in handshakes. This very well could be keeping covid-19 at bay in the state of Georgia. I’m sure we’re going to find out really soon especially as more and more states begin to reopen.

How about restaurants? Is it safe to go out and eat. There are many new rules in place for going out to eat. Hand washing and employees wearing cloth face coverings are both essentials. The CDC recommends that all restaurants intensify sanitation disinfection and cleaning. Create social distancing by spacing tables and continuing to recommend curbside pickup. Restaurants are required to develop a system to check for signs and symptoms of covid-19 in their employees. So now, will the people come back? That’s an unknown. We do know that restaurant capacity is going to be greatly cut given the rules about separating tables and total people allowed in each establishment. It’s tough for the restaurants to begin with. The situation we are in makes it much tougher. Think about it, we go out to eat to relax. Maybe we go out with our kids on a Sunday. Our adult kids and sit in a sports bar watching the game and eating wings. Well there are no games and there are rules for the customers too. Face masks are required. The only time they can be removed is when you are eating. Your server will be wearing a face mask and gloves. Now I see this in Publix when I go shopping and I have to admit that I am feeling a certain level of discomfort when I’m walking in a grocery store. But, grocery shopping isn’t supposed to be relaxing. It’s a necessity. I can’t imagine not having that same feeling in a restaurant where everybody is masked and if you just sit and try and forget about the world around you you’re reminded every time you open your eyes if you are sitting in a covid-19 world restaurant. I’ve got to tell you. There’s nothing relaxing about that in my opinion. Although I support this country and certainly small business, I’m going to choose to sit those restaurants out for a while. I don’t mind making my own food sitting in front of my own big screen television set that broadcasts in 4k, and not worrying about somebody walking by, or serving me and sneezing while I’m not wearing a mask. It’s really that simple. I think the restaurants have a big tall ladder to climb and it’s going to take a long time before people are comfortable again. I won’t be comfortable until I’m able to get a vaccination. We go to the grocery stores because we have to. Nobody forces us to go to a restaurant. I am not anti restaurant. I am anti covid-19. Now I feel the same way about gyms. This one I don’t get and I am a workout person. Now full confession, I have a full gym in my house and I’ve always used it. I don’t need to use a public gym but I’ll occasionally drop by one of the gyms in my community perhaps a few times a month because of the social aspect involved. I’m glad I don’t have to do that now. How many times have we been in gyms, I mean real gyms and have had the person in front of us not clean off a bench that they sweat on, or a machine? In my mind gyms are already Petri dishes for disease. why would we put ourselves in Jeopardy doing something that we specifically do to be healthy. There are plenty of household items you can use to have a really good workout. The elliptical can be replaced by brisk walking and the same benefits will be reaped without the risk of catching covid-19. I don’t believe that one person in our government ever thought what would happen if everything reopened and nobody came. The jury is out on all this right now. There ought to be a verdict in the next month or so. Once again I really hope that I am wrong.

The lone Star State has reopened. Yes Texas is open for business. The only problem in Texas is that this weekend, and Saturday specifically Texas had the biggest single day jump in covid-19 cases since the pandemic began. 1801 new cases were diagnosed on Saturday. Texas Governor Abbott, laid the blame on the City of Amarillo noting that there were 700 new cases in Amarillo alone on Saturday. Is that really an important point? Amarillo is a hotspot. We all have cars. We go places. I don’t believe it’s safe there. I wouldn’t feel safe doing anything in Texas right now yet against all the original criteria for reopening including a 14-day downslope in new cases Texas has reopened.

These are some of the things that I noticed today in the news. Our world is still crazy. It seems like the craziness will never end. I genuinely hope like all of us do, that there will be a vaccine and it’ll happen sooner than later. I hope the people wise up and stick out their arms to accept the needle gratefully. Everyday is a day to watch. Day to keep our fingers crossed and Hope that we’ve finally crossed the bridge and we’re going to be able to continue to work and keep this country open..  Most importantly keep all that horrible death away.

payday loan consolidation

The real condition of our country and payday loan consolidation in the time of coronavirus!

As most Americans have been doing I’ve been giving some thought to the spin coming out of the White House. Our President keeps saying that things will be better soon. He’s entitled to that thought but many people believe just the opposite, and I believe he does too. His evening press conferences are filled with positivity and thoughts that this will all be over soon. There’s either one of two things going on here. Number one is that he believes it. Contrary to everything his experts tell him he believes that everything will be okay. The second thing that could be happening, and I believe is happening is that President Trump is campaigning every single night. His position is powerful. He’s getting free TV time every night and his opponent who I don’t like much either doesn’t get the same because technically this is a press conference not a political advertisement. Even with all this free TV time his numbers are going down in the polls that he doesn’t believe in and as he would say that’s not a good thing. He’s opening up important businesses. He’s encouraging governors to do the same.

Important businesses? Barber shops, and movie theaters? Why doesn’t he spend his time shutting down the payday lenders. That is definitely going to be another post here real soon. He’s forcing hard-working Americans, desperate for money to take out payday loans that they can’t afford. This eventually leads these people down the route of payday loan consolidation. All of that is stressful and unnecessary. I’d like use this blog today to give you my take on what’s really happening here. The president can tell you forever that things are getting better but proof is in what we see and what we hear. It doesn’t look good and it doesn’t sound good. There are three ways to look at this. What is status quo and has it changed? What has changed for the better? And what has changed for the worse? Status quo, 30% of our workforce is not working. Unemployment applications are at a new high and corporate earnings are down. Status quo is that in the United States over a thousand people are dying of covid-19 everyday. That’s status quo. That’s horrible. Status quo is that we walk everywhere in public wearing a mask. Status quo is that all the major sports leagues are not playing sports. MLB has come up with a plan to play that might or might not be approved by the players union but would certainly be interrupted if 10 guys tested positive. And this would be in empty stadiums. The chance of seeing basketball or hockey finish their seasons is becoming more remote as the days pass by. If anybody believes that football camps will open in July I would tell them to lose that thought right now. That will not happen. We will not be far enough along.

Now, that might sound strange to say given the flattening of the curve in so many places as well as the inevitable downward slope that occurs after it flattens. But I’m right and I’ll tell you why in the portion of this post that talks about things that are getting worse. I guess the new status quo is being able to get a massage or a tattoo in Georgia. Congratulations Mr. Governor. Job well done. Again, I say, why not go after the payday lenders. They’re open too.I’ve been in this business for years and I see what they do to people. The borrowers come to us for payday loan consolidation and I can see firsthand how badly they’ve been hurt by payday lenders. These are just a few of the status quo things that popped into my head. What’s getting better? The death count is going down as well as the infection rate. That’s proof that science works. A month of stay-at-home and social distancing slowed the spread and greatly reduced the morbidity rate. It’s really like a miracle especially in a city like New York. That’s absolutely a positive. Unfortunately I can’t think of very more positives that have happened. Most people still walk around frightened and wearing masks. People that rely on their government to keep them safe but their government really has no intention of keeping them safe. Please read on. What’s getting worse? I’m going to tell you a story. I needed cash yesterday and I needed more cash than my ATM would allow in a single day. I’m doing work around the house and it keeps me busy and I like it. It also costs money. I went to my local Bank of America branch and found that it was closed. This is Friday at noon. This can’t be right. I went to the one about four miles down the road and it was closed too. Now I know there’s something wrong. I pulled off the road and googled my problem. if it was publicized I didn’t hear about it but all the banks are cutting their hours and cutting their open branches daily down here in South Florida. I finally found an open Bank of America and found a line that was around the building. To be fair, common social distancing played a big part in that. People were spaced 6 feet apart and wearing masks. I parked my car and got online with the everyone else. If I didn’t know better, I would have thought there was a run on the banks. Great time to close your branches Bank of America. Good job. A shout out to Wells Fargo and TD also. I read that they’re doing it too. When I finally got into the bank I was greeted by a masked police officer. Very strange. He seemed easy going, so I asked him what exactly was going on. He told me that somebody was robbed outside this branch the day before. His patrol car as well as his presence would definitely stop that from happening again. I believed him. I haven’t seen anything like this in years.

Armed guards in Banks? That’s not progress that’s digression. The elephant in the room or in this blog post so to speak would be the United States of America opening up over the next few days and people going to work. Down here in South Florida, Dade Broward and Palm Beach counties are still shut down and they will be for a while. Southeast Florida still has it bad and somebody must have told the Governor moRON DeSantis that opening up South Florida wouldn’t be the right thing to do at this time. So the rest of Florida along with most of the country is starting to reopen. What does that mean? Well my take is that it means a lot of people are going to get sick,  maybe even for the second time, because we don’t know if having it once grants you complete immunity. You just can’t have all these people going back to work and interacting with others, masks and all, and think they are not going to get sick. We saw what happened the first time. This is an absolute case of our federal government putting commerce before human life. I’m all for commerce. Please understand that I don’t want to see this stock market, tank and our economy destroyed. Yet I think we need to weigh the advantage of reopening against the damage that will potentially be done. I believe another month would make a huge difference. I think that the American people are smart enough to know this. Everyone I’ve spoken to, and myself included does not feel safe enough to walk into a restaurant and have dinner. It’s kind of disconcerting to have your server masked and gloved, and having to sit there with your mask on until the food comes. That’s not my idea of a relaxing dinner. Sorry. I know there are many places I will not go. I’m not going to go get a haircut. If it gets too long I’ll tie it back or I’ll have a friend cut it. My hair is not worth my life. This is not something getting better this is something getting worse. As of these businesses start to reopen I believe Wave 2 will start to appear. We won’t see it immediately. It’ll be like the first time. We’ll see it around a month or so after we reopen. Experts have said that when we first started testing and each state was showing 5 or 10 people infected they were probably tens of thousands of people walking around with the infection and we now know that’s true. I believe we’re in for a Long Winter this summer. I believe it’s going to last until the beginning of 2021 at best, and at worst for another 18 months. Until such time as all Americans AND all citizens of the world can be inoculated we will all be in danger of getting sick.

People are going back to work now. This is the time when we need to restore our financial health, cross our fingers and hope I’m wrong. You’re on this site because you’re having problems with your payday loans and can’t make your payments. Payday loan consolidation is the most viable option to fix your finances.

Consolidate your payday loans and start living your new life today!

*Will payday loan consolidation hurt my credit?

In most cases, payday loan consolidation won’t hurt your credit, but it won’t help your credit either. Payday loan lenders usually don’t report payday loans to a credit bureau except if they’re delinquent. The only things that happen when consolidating your payday loans all work for you. Your interest rates are reduced enormously. Payday loan interest rates customarily run between 200% and 700% annually. Payday loan consolidation can in most cases lower your interest rates down to 0%. This keeps you from remaining in the cycle of constantly rolling up one payday loan into another. Paying off payday loans certainly doesn’t hurt your credit. It helps you to maintain whatever credit you have.

*Can you add payday loans to debt consolidation?

Of course you can! Debt consolidation is simply taking all your debt and rolling it up into one monthly payment which is dispersed to your creditors at a reduced interest rate. Anything unsecured is almost always accepted into a payday loan consolidation program. Given the state of our economy, especially now in the time of coronavirus, many people are running into payday loan problems and needing to consolidate their payday loan debt. Federated Financial is a 23 year-old A+ rated BBB company. We have a tried & true formula that can help you get out of debt at a greatly reduced cost, over a shorter amount of time than you could negotiate for yourself. Debt consolidation of your payday loans works!

*Should you consolidate your payday loan with a personal loan?

That is a subjective question. Everybody has their own opinion. I’m going to tell you why consolidating your payday loans with another loan makes very little sense. You wake up one day and you decide you want to consolidate your payday loan. If your credit is still good you might very well be eligible for a debt consolidation loan which in turn will consolidate your payday loan. My question is, why consolidate one high interest loan with another? Instead, just consolidate your payday loan with a debt consolidation program. That way in most cases, you’ll be replacing your high interest loan with a no interest debt consolidation plan. We’d love the opportunity to explain it all to you! Please feel free to call us anytime, and we can show you a quicker and less expensive way to get out of payday debt then borrowing more money!

Movie theaters in the United States are not coming back!

Everything I write here I truly believe. Seriously. In my opinion the movie theater business will never come back for quite a few reasons. A little over a month ago when they started to shut down there was no place to see new releases. Then the studios did a curious thing. They started releasing smaller movies, or off-season filler to the two major streaming services Amazon Prime and Netflix. Amazon Prime costs $120 a year and Netflix is $15 a month or $180 a year. Along with Fox news and CNN, AND your local stations that’s all the TV anybody needs. Cut the cord! That’s a post for next week! So the studios have released these movies to streaming services. They’re not big movies but they’re fun movies and they are brand new releases. Amazon charges $19.99 to rent a brand new theatrical release for 24 hours. It makes sense. Think about it. Dinner for two, $50. Beverages in the movie theater $20. Your tickets $30. When did Movie theater night become a $100 deal. Stay at home, pay twenty bucks and have your own bathroom, your own food, your own pause button and if you get tired in the middle turn it off and finish it in the morning. In addition you’re not sitting next to a total stranger who is screwing around with his phone during the movie, chomping down on his food and making a racket, and refusing to discipline his unruly child. Is this experience worth $100? Not to me. Now the movie theater business has been married to the studios for over a hundred years. The antiquated business model still remains. I don’t entirely blame the theaters for charging a ton of money at their concession stands. When the studios release a blockbuster, the theaters don’t make any real money until that movie is out four or five weeks. It works on a sliding scale.after the first few weeks, depending on the cost of the movie the theaters make more and the studios make less. Again, it make sense. Some of these big movies have budgets of well over two hundred million dollars. Somebody has to pay for them. Consumers pay when we’re paying at least $15 a ticket and the theater pays all of it to the studio in the beginning. The only way theaters can make money is at the concession stand. Their problem not mine. Change the model. Now let’s talk about big movies that will not be released on their release date. I’m talking about the new James Bond film. I’m talking about the Top Gun sequel, Maverick. Marvel films Black Widow starring Scarlett Johansson and the one I’m looking forward to the most, West Side Story, due out at Christmas time. Does anybody really believe that we will be back in the movies at Christmas time? And the next question would be is that what the studios want? Think about it. if anybody believes that coronavirus will be completely eradicated by this coming Christmas they’re wrong. This country and the rest of the world will not be well until there is a vaccine that prevents this disease, and we’re looking 18 months down the road. Studios have laid out billions of dollars to create movies. They’re going to want their money back. Who wants to walk into a movie theater where everybody is masked, people are sitting 6 feet apart and everybody worries if somebody sneezes or coughs? We go to the movies to relax and to get lost in a 2-hour fantasy. The scenario I mentioned is not conducive to relaxing. I am not going!!!!!!  Worst case scenario is that I see it streaming 3 months later but is that what’s really going to happen? What happens if they reopen the theaters and people don’t come back the way they used to? The studios have an out. The streaming services that rent their movies 3 months down the road would be glad to take the new release and stream it from day one. Even if they charge $35 for a rental it’s still cheaper than taking your wife or your family to the movies. Imagine watching Black Widow at home! To me it’s a blessing. I don’t like movie theaters. I can’t control my environment. I’m talking about the people that are sitting next to me and the noise they make. Human beings are inherently afraid of disease because of our survival instincts. Six months from now people are not going to be going to the movies. This problem is not going to be indigenous to the United States. Take China. Chinese people love American Cinema. Box office numbers bear that out. Having said that and after seeing how the coronavirus ravaged their own country, I’m sure that the Chinese people would more than likely prefer to sit at home like I do and watch my movies there. In addition, studios make a fortune all over the world with their total take . Every country in the world streams video these days. Why is there still a middleman and I’m referring to the movie theaters? It’s really not necessary. Movie theaters as we know them have become completely obsolete! We live in a world where 50-inch television sets cost $300 and they are 4K television. Arguably a better picture than you see on the screen.

Somebody out there please tell me the advantage of going to the movies? Even if people wanted to go would they be able to go given that the coronavirus will come back in full force in the fall or winter. It has to. We are opening up too soon. We are trading human life for money. It will be interesting seeing this play out but I can’t see any reason whatsoever why Netflix and Amazon can’t start advertising the latest James Bond film in October for release during Christmas week on their streaming Networks. It’s time to close the theaters. Do the studio’s really want to bank on movie theaters being open in December and do they want a bank on people coming back even if they are? If they do their gambling billions of dollars Just a bunch of stuff to think about. I believe I’m right.

And now we move on. The country is reopening bit by bit starting with Georgia yesterday and by the 1st of May many states will be following suit. People are going back to work and that means two things. Paychecks, and collectors trying to get their hands on them. If you’re on this site you’ve been thinking about payday loan debt consolidation.

We have found that in most cases we can take the usurious interest rates that your lenders are charging and get them to lower it down from 700% in some cases all the way down to zero.

Leave it to our country’s leaders to politicize the biggest tragedy in 102 years…

Read this. It affects you. President Trump has his mind set that this country needs to reopen by the 1st of May. People get it. They understand why. Or, at least they understand why he feels that way, but it might not necessarily be right. In the case of coronavirus the cure is in the process of destroying the patient.

Our economy has seen a nice bounce-back over the last week and a half but, it’s certainly not time to put people back to work in many places. The President has come out and said that the final decision rests with him which is in direct contravention to the Constitution. The 10th amendment specifies this fact. Governor Cuomo of New York was very specific about this. “Earlier Tuesday the governor told NBC‘s “Today” that the power to reopen state economies clearly sat with their governors as defined by the 10th Amendment to the Constitution, which states that powers not clearly designated to the federal government fall instead to the states.” If you have your nose to the news, many constitutional attorneys have come out and agreed with Andrew Cuomo, who is an attorney himself. At the governor’s briefing today he was very specific about not wanting to politicize this problem but wanting to protect the people first. A coalition of East coast governors including Republican Governor Charlie Baker from the state of Massachusetts have formed kind of a coalition coming forth to say that the decision is ultimately there’s as to whether or not their state gets reopened, and they will do what’s best for the people of the states they govern. Donald Trump came out this morning on Twitter calling these governors mutineers. Not very Presidential. Shame on him for that. He’s a bright man who does know better.

Governor Cuomo went on to say at his briefing this morning, and I paraphrase, that the President has been extremely responsive to him and the state of New York and the last thing he wants to do is go to war with Washington. He wants to leave politics out of this discussion and concentrate on the people only. He went on to say that he has no axe to grind with the President and would only oppose him if President Trump were to try and override his decision as to whether or not to reopen New York to business. It’s an interesting situation that bears watching. I will say that after all I have watched and read about this, all these governors have an open and shut case. The 10th amendment clearly gives the power to local government. When our founding fathers wrote the Constitution they had come from a Monarchy and had no desire to create another one. There was never supposed to be a king in America and there never has been. So will some areas start to reopen and go back to work? If they do your payday loans will become a problem. You will need help consolidating your payday loans.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. You’ve come to the right place. if you need help consolidating your payday loans we are the company to use. We’ve been in business for 23 years and we’re highly rated at a plus by the BBB. Payday loans are a tricky thing. The lenders love them because they earn between 200 and 700% interest on most payday loans they extend. Our company, in most cases will be able to lower your interest rate down to zero and get you out of debt in a much shorter amount of time for a whole lot less money. If you need help consolidating your payday loans, please use us! You want to deal with the best payday loan consolidation company out there and remember one thing! We care.

how do payday loans work

How many payday loans do you currently have?.. Have you tried Consolidation?

How many payday loans do you have? That might seem like a strange question but I have a good reason for asking. Payday loans were actually once a good thing. The initial modern day payday loan model was set up by lenders to help out the people who live week by week, when they ran short of cash. I don’t know where or when the model changed. The old model didn’t charge loan shark interest rates. They charged people a moderate about of money to get by until the weekend. People were willing to pay money for that privilege and that’s pretty much real life commerce. You pay for a service. Somewhere along the line the need for greed kicked in and payday lenders became the legal version of the mob. I’ve written articles about this before and if you go a few months back in the blog you can read them.

Did you know? 8 out of 10 payday loans roll over. That’s right. Only 20% of the payday loans that are taken out are paid back on time within the preset guidelines. This is exactly what the payday loan companies want and exactly how their business models have been set up. Repeat customers are their easiest customers to find. Given that 8 out of 10 payday loans are rolled over my question at the top of this post seems very real. It would stand to reason that when a person maxes out their ability to borrow from one lender because they’re busy paying off a loan that has already rolled over, they search for another company and fresh money. It’s an extremely vicious cycle. Eventually, the consumer doesn’t have the ability to pay all these loans back, and they have no alternative but to stop paying, at least on some of them.

That’s when the creditors go to work. There are very few people that walk the earth that have not been deeply in debt at one point in their life, myself included. I remember when I was first married with a baby on the way how short we were of money. I’ve received those phone calls. I remember them. The creditors were no kinder back then. They wanted their money. Collectors are a different breed. Some of them are like rabid animals. Notwithstanding all that, the bottom line is they want their money back and they’re entitled to it. How do consumers pay back loans when their interest rates are running as high as 700% annually? In many cases the answer is they are just not able to pay. At least not all the loans at once. That’s where we come in. We can help you if you let us. Here’s how it works. You fill out the short form on our homepage or just give us a call. We are open, 9 to 9 Monday through Thursday, and 9 to 6 on Fridays. Somebody will pick up the phone during those hours. You will speak to a certified counselor who has been well-schooled in how to handle your payday debt. You will be given the parameters and if you agree with them you will give us permission to help you out. The first thing we do is tell you exactly how, and how much we can reduce your monthly payments. Much of that reduction comes in the form of having your interest rates lowered to 0%, in most cases. That’s the place that the large monthly savings begins. We have pre-arranged agreements with your lenders that allows you to make your payment through us and save money. We have been in business for 23 years and that longevity along with our A+ BBB rating gives us the credibility to work with your lenders and help you. They know if we tell them that they’re going to get paid in most cases they will. You make your first payment. All the paperwork goes out to your creditors.

At this point the phone calls stop. As you go along and make your payments you’ll notice that the balances are dramatically dropping. This is what you want to see. The bottom line is that we can get you out of debt in a shorter amount of time that you could do so yourself and at a greatly reduced interest rate which helps to lower your monthly payments. Our country is getting closer to reopening. Payday loan consolidation companies are more essential now that they’ve been before. There are more people in debt now than there have ever been. Good payday loan consolidation companies do their job well and really can help you. What do you look for when trying to find good payday loan consolidation companies? You’re looking for longevity. Longevity equates to a good strong solid track record.That’s the type of payday loan consolidation company that you need when trying to dig out of this debt. You’ve come to this site for a reason. As we all start our new normal over the next few months it’s time for all of us to reassess our finances and use payday loan consolidation to get out of debt.

Payday loans and payday loan debt consolidation in the age of coronavirus!

I was just doing some thinking. It’s Sunday April 12th, Easter Sunday and I just read this long article about how amazingly wonderful the federal government is for sending out $1,200 ACH’s and checks this coming week.

Am I missing something here? This country has been out of work and shut down for about a month now. What good is one check, just one check for $1,200? Well let’s see. In the south Florida area in which I reside it’s less than a half months rent for a 3-bedroom 2-bath home. More than likely it would probably pay the interest and property taxes presupposing they’re escrowed on a house that you owned. For a family of four it would probably buy groceries for about a month. I think you can see where I’m going with this. Why bother if it’s only going to be $1,200.If I’m not mistaken, initially it was going to be $1,200 twice. In other words once in April and once in May.

I’ve not read anything about that since it was first brought up and discussed. What we need to do for the sake of my point here is to let’s put that $1,200 aside just for a moment. If your state is anything like mine unemployment maxes out at somewhere between three and four hundred dollars a month. Add the $600 that the government was gracious enough to add on, and they’ve said they will add that on every week, and that makes $900. That’s less money then many people make. If you’ve lived your life making sound financial decisions hopefully you have some money tucked away for these rainy days. It’s hard to do that even in a two-income family especially if your family is young. Many people are not able to save until they get older.

So I guess we talk about alternatives. I haven’t forgotten about the $1,200. We’ll get to that in a moment or so. If you are a two-income family that 900 X’s 2 should get you by. Good for you. In this country, single parent families are a pervasive problem. The real problem here lies with monthly income when there is none. You are relying on your local unemployment office and an additional $600 kicker from the government to live each week. That $1,200 stimulus check your getting provides and additional $500 for each dependent child. I think you’re understanding my math right now and bottom line it is you probably won’t be making very much more than you would need to make to get by and perhaps you’ll be making a little less. That $1,200 that I was talking about before needs to be put away. I’m serious.

My dad always told me…and he was right, just to live on my earnings. In this case you must live on whatever your earnings are and you have to be financially responsible so you can live on this money. Emergencies happen and that’s what the $1,200 should be for you right now. Being in the financial business I understand what people do for money sometimes. Hopefully you haven’t had to borrow and I especially hope that you haven’t had to resort to taking a payday loan. Paying somewhere between 200 and 500% interest is really unacceptable. If you’ve been forced into that situation let us help you. Let us help you before it gets completely out of hand. Payday loan debt consolidation is a proven factor in reducing payday loan debt. Reducing payday loan debt is essential while the loan is still new. As the loan ages the interest mounts, and if you’re unable to pay on that loan as per your contract your total balance is going up right now.

Payday loan debt consolidation is the answer. In most cases we can help you by working with your creditors to reduce that enormous interest rate down to 0% which lowers your payment considerably and helps you out of debt quickly. Payday loan debt consolidation has worked for decades, and we’ve been around for decades. We have an A+ rating with the BBB and as an old established company we have the ability to help you. We will get you into a payment that you can afford to make and get you out of this payday debt. Did you know that only two out of 10 people pay off their payday loans as per their original contract? The other 80% roll the original loan into another. We can stop that from happening. Fill out our form or give us a call and we can begin to help you immediately. We always do the right thing. We have a track record to prove it, and in addition, we really care!

payday loan consolidation

Your Payday Loan Creditors are starting to drool!

Yes, you read that right. As talks go on about reopening our country, creditors around the country are starting to get hungry. Hungry for your money. If you’re on this blog you know that we are a payday loan consolidation company. We are one of the companies that consolidate payday loans. Our name is Federated Financial and we’ve been in business for 23 years with an A+ rating from the BBB. That says it all. With that out of the way it’s time get real. Banks that deal in mortgages and credit card debt have extended all sorts of amnesty to their clients. It’s not because they’re kind.

It’s because they want to get paid even if it’s in small bites. No amnesty for payday loans! Why? Because these lenders prey on their customers. Their business model is geared to keep people in debt for many years. Payday loan debt consolidation companies are here to curb that process. There’s no amnesty for payday loan debt. I’ve googled it many times and can’t find anything about that. That begets the question, how do I get out of payday debt? Well, as most of us know by now the government will be either electronically transferring or snail mailing relief checks to most Americans starting on Monday.

Your payday loan creditors are keenly aware of that too and will use every resource within their power to get their hands on your money. You need payday loan consolidation companies now,,, more than you know! If you’re reading this you are here for help and tell you why. What I mean, is you’re here because you need us but you really don’t know what we can do for you. A good payday loan consolidation company that’s been in business for a very long time has built up solid relationships with your creditors. Based on our longevity and the honest, transparent way we do business, payday loan companies know if we tell them they’re going to get paid in most cases they do.

You want to pay those payday loans through our company. Using a good payday loan consolidation company to pay your debt can save you thousands of dollars, and years of grief, both emotional and financial. In most cases our program can get your creditors to reduce your interest rate all the way down to 0%. Right now, odds are your paying somewhere between 200% and 700% annually. Payday loan consolidation companies can make your savings astronomical. Relieving the high interest burden from your loan allows you to pay off your payday loans in a reasonable amount of time. It’s really a smackdown victory. You’re paying your creditors back, but you’re not paying The “Vig” so to speak. One last little note. I call it The “Vig” for a reason. It’s a term that loan sharks use to describe interest. It’s short for vigorish. That’s what they call it. I call it that because I believe that payday lenders are nothing short of glorified loan sharks. Eventually the government will do something about it. Right now you’re stuck with it so let’s make the best of it. Let us help you! It’s what we do, and we really care!

federated financial

Federated Financial an illustrated history of us!

Federated Financial Services incorporated in the state of Florida January of 1998. We’ve come a long way. The world has changed, and almost 23 years of life has gone by. We started small. We were a little debt consolidation agency employing seven people. I never planned for us to grow. Well, not grow that much. I always believed we needed to stay small and controllable. It didn’t work out that way. The problem was unfortunately this country was rife with debt. We had never thought about that. Initially when we started, we advertised in local papers all around the United States. The response was immense. We had no choice. We had to add staff. People we’re calling from all over the country. Then the licensing and bonding process immediately began. It almost put us out of business. These two things were very expensive but we made it through and continued to grow. Six months later we found the Internet. Or actually it found us. I had a website designer come in and tell me that we should be advertising our service because his mother used us and we were great. We bought our first domain. I wanted Federated Financial.com. It was taken. We ended up with ffs – inc.net. Short and sweet and right to the point. Little did I know that my web designer was studying SEO. When the point in time came that he felt his understanding of the process was deep and unique, we decided to create a site and make it SEO friendly. The response was crazy. Our SEO certainly did a good job. We had number one ratings in all the major categories on the one search engine that was relevant at the time. That was AOL which was powered by Excite. We needed more staff. By the year 2000 we employed over 50 people

https://web.archive.org/web/19991104034304/http://ffs-inc.com:80/

We started to grow in and bounds and the industry followed. In 2002 all the creditors we dealt with required us to become certified as an ISO company. I always thought manufacturers were the only companies that had to do this but I realized it was a quality control system, and given that we dealt with large sums of information and money we jumped at the opportunity to become a member of such a prestigious club. And we grew again! In August of 2001 I finally got the domain I was looking for. We were now federatedfinancial.com. Given that people were flocking to us in droves we decided it was time to start from scratch and create a real comprehensive website which said it all. And we did. That site gave us the ability to reach more people and to tell people what we were all about. We were only two and a half years old and we had 30,000 clients. We were also A+ members of the BBB , receiving that distinction in 1999. In addition we were well-established members of the community and of the industry. With an in-house IT staff of six, we felt we were technically the most innovative company of them all.

We needed to change with the times. Business was great and we were doing a hell of a job. We finally knew we had made it. My IT department re wrote our existing software and we prepared for the crunch. We had 50000 clients. As our site became more relevant our position improved on all of the search engines and we literally had hundreds of number 1 positioning online. Only one of the company was doing this at the time. They were good too. That was good for both companies because kept both it staffs on their feet thinking all day long. Everybody wants to be the best. We always considered our clients friends and family. We treated them as though they were our sisters and brothers. That showed in our results. Over 80% of our people completed our program and got out of debt. We still continued to grow and every year the criteria became more stringent for ISO certification. We always passed the inspection. Our quality control department made sure of that. We became very compartmentalized. It felt so corporate. We had 80 employees.

https://web.archive.org/web/20061124142449/http://federatedfinancial.org/

All of a sudden it was 2005 and we were one of the top three companies in the United States. We had over 60,000 clients and a staff of 105. We had an HR department, we had a review department. We had a customer service department. We had every single department you needed to run a big strong credit counseling company and we did. We did it well and we did a great job. We occupied 18000 square feet with a hundred plus employees and the clients just kept coming. We learned firsthand what really was going on here in America. Things weren’t “Rosie”. That’s an understatement. Then came 2008 and 2009. The world came to an end. Our country had a financial meltdown. I thought we’re going to have to throw in the towel. Who would think about paying bills when the markets crashed and the banks were really hurting. The federal government had to bailout General Motors and Chrysler. But, not only did we survive but we thrived. To this day I absolutely believe it was due to the unparalleled customer service that we provided our clients. We always bent over backwards to do the right thing, but in time, everything passes and the country was once again up and running. I liked our website a lot and it served the purpose. It became recognizable. It was almost a symbol of our company and people just knew it! There was no reason to change it cuz it worked. We were a successful company. Nobody complained because we did a great job. Our debt consolidation and payday loan consolidation programs were working and people were relaxed and happy knowing that their bills were getting paid and the creditors were not calling them anymore. We had succeeded in the mission that we started off to accomplish years before. 10 years old and doing our job. I was very proud.

We kept this website in different incarnations for a long time. Probably seven or eight years. Then we switched to the above. This website has been up since 2015 in various incarnations and you’re looking above at the iteration we use today. This website is a vast encyclopedia of knowledge plus information, and we provide that for everybody because there should be no reason people can’t have access to good strong information like this on the Internet.

We are still in business after all these years and we’ve scaled it down a bit. This industry isn’t what it used to be and we don’t have the same volume of clients that we used to, but we’re still quite large and we’re not going anywhere. We have a track record and we have the same ownership now that we had almost 23 years ago.There are more Americans to help and we plan on helping them. The name Federated Financial stands on its own. Everybody knows who we are and I’m proud of that. I created something from scratch and I’m still doing it today.
