Welcome to the Bankruptcy Forum. Bankruptcy (BK) Forum is known as BKForum.com and will be referred to as BKF hereinafter. In order to ensure a long term success of our vibrant community, we have established certain rules and guidelines to which everyone must adhere to. Please take your time to carefully read our rules, before you start to participate in the community.

Things you agree to do:
BKFORUM.com (BKF) users agree to use the search function before starting a new thread. This prevents duplicate discussions and allows for better organized topics.

All BKF users agree to read the sticky posts which may be available at the top of a forum page. These Sticky posts often contain valuable information. They may also outline more rules and guidelines specific for that particular forum, stickies are put in place by that forums moderator(s) or admin(s).

Things you agree not to do:

All BKF users agree not to call people names or write a post simply to make a personal attack, or get a negative reaction; this behavior is not allowed on our forum. The use of derogatory language aimed at anyone will be severely dealt with. There is no need to agree with each other, or to even like each other. However, by signing onto BKForum.com you agree to treat each member and guest with the respect they deserve. No threats or personal attacks will be allowed.

All BKF users agree not to discuss, engage, or encourage any behavior or activity which violates the law. Discussion of drugs, violence, murder, theft, vandalism, fraud or any other issue which could be used to help individuals break the law is strictly forbidden.

All BKF users agree not to "bump" old threads, unless there is a specific benefit to the community by doing so. But in most cases, please don't post in very old threads, instead start new threads.

All BKF users agree not to attempt/use another members account. It is against BKF rules to use any account other than your own. Impersonating another member will result in an immediate ban. It is also against the rules to open more than one account in your own name without permission from a moderator or administrator. If you have been banned for any reason, it is against the rules to open another account. If you were banned temporarily and you are caught using another account you will be banned permanently. Choosing a moniker which is similar in either sound or spelling as a moderator or administrator is strictly forbidden.

All BKF users agree not to private message any moderator, admin, or other member with questions related to their personal circumstances (Questions about the forum or issues with the forum are ok). This forum only works when members share their experience and insights with everyone.

Things you agree not to post:

BKF is the largest bankruptcy message board and all the content is intended to help other users. Please help us improve the quality of our forum by making sure that your posts are well-worded, spell checked, grammatically correct and syntaxed.

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.

All moderators do have active "other" lives outside of the forum and help moderate this forum in their spare time throughout the days and weeks.

If you have a problem with a member or Mod follow the proper channels of reporting it.

BKF reserves the right to delete any posts which contain anti-BKF comments or discussion. Any bashing of moderators or administrators, or any of their discussion or actions will also be deleted, and the responsible posting party(s) will be banned. Any public anti-BKF advertising, communication, or posts on another forum will result in permanent bans as well.

All warnings and bans are decided by individual moderators and administrators. Warnings are preferable to bans however, for serious offenses and repeat abusers bans will go into effect. The length of the bans can vary from several hours to permanent.

All messages posted or sent including through PM are the property of BKforum.com.

All BKF users agree not to advertiser on the forum (Niether by posting, private messaging or using your signature). If you are a company/attorney/legal adviser wishing to advertise on the site or sell a product, you must contact the head administrator and inquire about our advertising packages.

All bankruptcy related opinions expressed on BKForum.com are those of their authors and not necessarily of BKF, its staff or representatives.

You agree not to copy any material/post/content from BKF without written permission from our head administrator .

By posting on this forum you agree to these terms and conditions, including any punishment deemed appropriate by moderators or administrators in the event of an offense.

Administrators/Moderators can change these rules at any time without prior notice.

    I haven't had any problems getting credit where I want it... I also got my BK removed from my Equifax report which is nice cause I was able to get in with USAA (who is an EQ puller) and most of the credit unions I use are EQ only.

    My credit is 10x's better after BK than it was before. It took a BK for me to learn how to use credit and not let it use me...

    You have Navy Federal don't you Logan? I can't remember if that was you or not...but we have GEICO through Navy Federal and nobody can touch the rates I get with them. I'm paying 477 bucks every 6 months for my hubby and myself with a 2013 Ford Edge and a 2007 Mercedes on our policy. I can't beat that with a stick...and I'm in VA, so they use credit to pull here. If you do have Navy Federal, I really do recommend using their GEICO insurance discount.
    I BK'd USAA so there is no way back until it drops off. I'm happy with my insurance now and I was laughing after USAA said I couldn't get insurance through them especially since I have a good driving history and I now have money. Back when I was struggling they gave me Auto Insurance and constant approvals for car loans and credit cards. Just kind of funny.

            I'm not a member of Navy Federal. I went with esurance with a discount through my credit union. My wife had an accident last year so we're being punished for that. We're under contract for a home i'll be re-shopping my insurance options.

              i asked that exact question and was told this: people with bad credit scores have a tendency to commit fraud more than those with good credit.

              i told the woman? really, this entire country is in a credit mess, many have lost their jobs and have maintained excellent credit up until the time they lost their jobs...doesn't our 40 plus years of being perfect count for anything? no she replied. then she said we have a few companies that don't check your credit, i said lets start me them please....terrible really.

              on the navy federal i looked into that even tho one of use was in the navy they said we had to be active? it said right on their site as well??? yet, i see all these people on the site, i guess if they have an active relative it's ok.

                  Someone moved this thread. While it's been mostly about insurance I started it to discuss how many of us are now in a much better financial position yet the same banks that would give us 25K credit limits and large car loans when we were upside down and broke won't touch us now. USAA won't insure me because I BK'd them with a car loan and a CC.

                        Because the discussion is mostly about insurance, I moved it to the Insurance Board.

                          Speaking of insurance, I'm buying a home in Naples, FL and will be searching for insurance. Any of you have any recommendations?
