Despite bad credit card loans, junk mails continues to pour in

Mailboxes are filled with junk mail invitations from credit card companies. It looks as if the card companies want customers to default over and over again and get into a bad credit rating. How else can one explain the aggressiveness with which they send out fresh invitations to sign up for the additional cards?

One of the most definite ways to run into debts and damage the credit score is by having too many cards and running too much of debts on the card. The simplest ways to fall into these traps are by signing up for too many cards. There are junk mail from all the major credit card companies and their enticing offers of 0% on balance transfers as well as fresh purchases. It is easy to fall prey to such offers and then get into bad credit loans.

Bad credit loans are also called subprime loans and the reason why consumers avoid these are due to the high interest rates they carry. This is due to the fact that lenders feel the need to protect themselves as well as their finances by lending to borrowers who have low credit scores. For someone with good credit scores anywhere above 720 (as per the FICO scores) the interest rates are not as high as they are for subprime auto or mortgage loans. However, if the credit score does slip then one might end up juggling between a whole range of bad offers be it mortgage or auto loans.

Lenders these days have become very cautious especially after the debacle in 2008 – 2009. Mortgage loans as well as auto loans are all not easy to get. The default rates during recession had hit the peak as the lenders had lent money to many people with low credit scores as well as heavy debts. Now most of the conventional lenders are giving out loans to the ones with a flawless credit record, good job histories, and very minimal monthly debt. However, one must move with caution as it is very easy to get into bad credit within a short period of time if one is aware that there is plenty of credit left.

So, the best thing to do with all these offers is to tear them up and toss them in the bin. Always apply for a card only when you need one. Otherwise it is better to ignore these offers.
