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.

  • Worried about AP havent filed yet

    hello and thanks for looking
    i accidentally overpaid on my newegg account to the tune of 4000 instead of 400 hit zero on accident checked my account next day had my whole credit line restored i spent it all in 2 days that was 14 months ago i know it was wrong but when i seen that credit line i got a fever and just spent it all have no clue what came over me i do know this they want to settle for 60% but i got nothing now. inital credit line was 4000$ + 4000$ = 8000$ + 25.99% intrest = screwed anyway i see it how long do i have to wait to file BK without having to worry about AP
    thank you

    If it was 14 months ago, you are way past the time when the debt can be presumed to be non dischargeable. I am pretty sure that there is no time you can wait to be sure the creditor can't file an AP. But, since the debt was incurred more than 90 days before filing, the creditor would have to prove that you incurred the debt without the intent to pay. They aren't likely to try. Worst case scenario: they file an AP and win and that one debt will not get discharged.

            Sounds like your the fly by the seat of the pants type so just file, pray, and learn.

            Sounds harsh but I stepped in the credit quicksand more than once but could never get both legs out. That is why I filed BK and am determined to stay debt free. The stress of owing even for a mortgage gives power over me to someone else and it just bothers me.
            11/23/'10-filed ch 13. 1/6/'11-341, confirmed. Below median. Plan completed 11/30/2015. DISSCHARGED 4/4/2016.JP
