Regarding actions of moderators and administrators:

The forum is no place to air out your opinion or be judgmental of our staff and its capabilities.

All BKF users agree not to abuse or mistreat moderators or administrators. It is against BKF rules to post any information regarding bans or any other action taken by a member of the moderating or administrative team. If you wish to discuss bans or warnings please do so via PM. To place a complaint against a moderator, send a PM to a super moderator. All Moderators are equal, any decision made by a moderator must be adhered to. If a moderator tells you something you do not like, do not go to another moderator looking for a different answer. If you are caught doing this you will be banned. The moderators work as a team and respect the decisions made by their peers and will help enforce them unless an administrator tells them differently.
If you have an issue with how the forum is run, then notify one of our administrator and we will look into the situation. We have in the past and still do appreciate any input that you offer this forum. But critical input and/or judgmental postings towards the staff will result in you getting banned.


Should you find a thread offensive or out of line, then notify a Mod in a PM so they can evaluate the situation and do the action deemed necessary.

  • Ok... Having some trouble... need some opinions

    Situation:
    we were going to reaffirm our Ford Escape.. someone ran a redlight and totaled it..
    the insurance is paying exactly what we owe to Chase financial
    cptr 7 BK discharged 1wk ago

    We NEED another car...
    According to Creditkarma
    my score: 608
    Wife: 703
    I have paid off 4 previous cars
    wife 3 previous
    NO repos or lates..

    together we are salaried(not including bonus etc..) at over $120k (me $50k her 70k)
    time on job
    Me:9mo
    Her 3mo.
    this is the reason we had to file BK.. BOTH lost our previous 3yr+ jobs.. and had NO income for a while

    Pulled an actual Equifax on my wife only said 610.. wonder whay the HUGE difference
    Had a local dealer pull transunion.. he said only 565 score!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    only roadloans wants to approve us.. and thats completely useless to us... "prefered" delawer is 2hr away and has CRAP for cars.. I'm not going to spend $15k on junk while paying 20% interest

    Does anyone think we would have luck financing through a dealership instead of looking online?.. I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place (cant buy a "beater.. she Drives 120 miles a day..)

    OK, I can't help myself so first of all......you could buy a "beater" (I like to call them "reliable used cars" since I drive around 85 miles a day in mine and have done so for the past two years) but you are saying that you are chooising not to. It's funny how the cars don't know how many miles they have on them, they just keep working until something goes wrong. What's even cooler is that I watch friends of mine bring their 2009 models in for warranty service while my 2000 model continues to run like a champ. I just think you should keep your options open. If you have to go with RoadLoans, believe me you aren't going to want to be financing a brand new car with them. You might as well start burning $100 bills.

    That said.......have you spoken to Chase about this? Maybe it is already done, and I know no one at Chase has a brain but maybe they would have been willing to keep the loan in tact and transfer the lien to the new car. If that's already impossible, I am going to go back to having you consider a nice used car from a reputable dealer. You may be more qualified since you would be dealing with a much lower payment and the interest won't eat you alive.

    Bottom line, one week post discharge is going to be tough other than what you have already found. I know some people have had success with Capital One but I don't think it was one week post discharge. You may also want to check with any decent used car dealers in your area that will hold the note. I hate most of those places but I actually did find one locally that is not a total ripoff. It's a horrible option, but it is an option. You don't have enough options to rule any of them out at this point.

    P.S. Your CreditKarma score is worth what you paid for it............that being NOTHING.

          I would try Capital One and see what kind of rate they offer you.

            Hi, how soon after your discharge did Cap1 approve you and do you know your scores? Also, did you have good credit before BK?
