One has only to a person who has some savings, think about the possibility of a competent investment as immediately raises the question: “Where to start” Do not really want to put the money in the bank at ridiculous rates. In addition, there is a risk then take a contribution. The crisis has clearly demonstrated how to “burst” the banks and their customers lose their money. Of course, the probability of falling into such a situation is low, but still it exists. Thus, this type of investment is not very profitable. In this situation, you can choose the path of punters.

2dThe revelation of major tax fraud has come to the fore with the release of millions of documents from a law firm in Panama. It reveals that government leaders are either involved money laundering and hiding wealth to avoid tax or their family members. Some of the biggest companies; the heads of major corporations; mining giants; business people; and crooks in general including drug dealers have their identities suppressed while moving trillions of dollars around the world.

The repercussions will be huge as people are angry who pay taxes and are virtually paying for these wealth crazed individuals to cheat on them. This is just one more wound in the already injured World Order that includes governments, financial institutions, and religions. It is the latter that is most at fault.

2fPeople will do almost anything for money and honesty goes out the window when for some giving it back to the government or the people through taxation can be avoided. Giant companies whose directors are paid in the millions are part of the biggest swindle of all time. They hide their money in off-shore bank accounts where their anonymity was supposedly protected. The code of silence about who they are and the companies they form for this purpose was broken.

Suddenly and with their wealth at stake they are named and shamed. From the leaders to their cohorts, from drug dealers to supplies, and from company executives to ex tax office accountants, they are all in on it. Grabbing the pot of gold and running with it is their aim and the thought that they are robbing their own countries and people is of no concern to them.

1rTo see a loved one die in front of your eyes is really bad. I have personally seen my grandparents leaving us alone and crossing to the other side. It was heartbreaking to see them take their last breaths in the same bed.

But not every individual has the same bond with their loved ones. There are families that have a lot of complications and problems within them. Sometimes, some parents don’t get along well with their children and vice versa. It all depends upon how you maintain your respect and bond with your loved ones.

But there are also families, which are closely knit together. Some of the parents earn well and leave a huge amount of property for their kids. No doubt money can’t replace them, but it is nothing, but their blessings and good wishes for their children.

If you have recently suffered from the loss of a loved one, you surely know how difficult it is to cope up with his death. However, if he has left something for you in his will, you should consider yourself lucky; not everybody gets such a

Wealth is an addiction created by greed and those who engage in it are unlikely to be a part of the inheritance of the great treasure at the end of the day. Following my reincarnation and with a strong link to the Spirit of the Universe, the only real God, it commissioned me to tear down the wall of blindness and bring in the harvest. In a vision a great treasure was shown to me buried deep under the ground.

The meaning of the treasure haunted me for some two to three weeks and my pleas to be shown what it implied had no effect.

He asked for the healing of one of his charges in a nursing home. My request was to be shown the meaning of the treasure.

15It is the great trap that has misled and conditioned people since the time of the Roman Empire. Prior to this people traded in goods and clay cylinders and tablets of ancient times verify that money was never used. The rise of coins was gradual and at first untrustworthy as merchants were used to dealing in exchange. Two sheep might have been worth one cow or a sack of barley, and these exchanges are recorded as such.

Only with the introduction of iron and complex alloys could money be minted and the first coins are primitive in design and some carried the king’s likeness while others might bear other images. ‘Exchange’ is the same as ‘X-change’ or ‘changed by the cross’ and that concept needs explaining.

8Managing your wealth, no matter how big or small, is a cumbersome task. Your financial advisor helps to keep your money safe while making it work for you. Before you start working with someone, ask them these important questions.

What Certifications Do You Have?

You need to know what licenses and certification your financial advisor has. Most of the top consultants are certified public accountants, fund specialists, consultants, or analysts. Some even carry a Juris doctorate and insurance licenses. While everyone has to start somewhere, you want to work with a firm that has extensive experience in the field.

What Safeguards Are in Place to Protect Assets from Fraud?

Your assets need to be protected by a reputable custodian. When you ask about safeguards, you should also ask about any infractions he or she has received in the past both with the firm and as an individual. To provide you with the best service, your financial advisor should be a fiduciary.

Consultants with a strict code of ethics have standards that they share with their clients. However, no matter their standards, they should be in compliance with Financial Industry

pkMany consumers wonder is credit repair legal? YES, actually it’s your right as a consumer to make sure your credit report is accurate, so there is nothing illegal about it!

There is also a huge misconception that credit bureaus are some type of government entity, they are not. In fact your local bar is just as much of a government agency as a credit bureau. A credit bureau is a business pure and simple, they have one purpose, which is to make as much money as possible. They don’t want to help you- they just want to make money! Making sure you have a low score helps them make cash, how?

Credit bureaus are essentially a lead source for lenders. They get paid by lenders so they can run your credit files when you want credit. They also sell thousands of leads everyday to lenders all over the country.

222Why Credit History Is Important?

You are in need of an urgent loan and the bank is reviewing your application. Well, that’s procedure and every lender will do the same thing. But what they are also going to evaluate is how your past history has been, regarding the payment of loans. Have you paid your bills on time, how long have you been using credit, how many credit cards have you obtained in a specific period of time and what is the current amount of your credit? These are some common questions that your lender might ask you when you apply for a loan.

The lender will then use your credit background and the credit scores to help determine whether you are eligible for a loan or not. So having a good credit background is critical if you plan on applying for a loan in the future. You would need to work on your habits to ensure that your credit background remains good but if there are some flaws in your credit background, there’s no need to worry. Although they cannot be completely erased; but with

qThe landscape of loan and credit in India has drastically changed in the recent times. In August 2000, the country’s first credit information company (CIC) came into existence. This organization is named as Credit Information Bureau (India) Limited though it is more popular by its acronym CIBIL. The entity steadfastly collects as well as safe keeps credit records of both individual and corporate borrowers. The range of information includes both borrowing and payment, relevant to credit cards and loans. CIBIL is licensed by the country’s supreme banking authority the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). Moreover, the accredited organization is governed by the Credit Information Companies Regulation Act, 2005.

To cut a long story short, CIBIL provides mutual benefit to both debtors and creditors in dealing with debt issues. In one hand, it helps creditors to run their business more efficiently while on the other, its effort proves helpful for borrowers to seek loans faster and at lucrative interest rates. CIBIL generates a three-digit credit score for every borrower. This score usually ranges from 300 to 900 and a score of 750 and above is considered

saWHY THE EMV CHIP CREDIT CARDS?

They present reduced identity theft. While copying a magnetic stripe, the current technology on traditional cards, is an inexpensive and simple thing to do, copying a chip is more complicated and expensive. The microprocessor chips are virtually impossible to duplicate. This means thieves can’t simply take account numbers stolen from a breach and emboss them onto the magnetic strip of a random card to make fraudulent purchases at stores or withdrawals at ATMs. Fake EMV chip credit cards are thus harder to make for them.

Though the liability in case of fraud has shifted, the card holder is still protected by the Fair Credit Billing Act. The liability has shifted from the credit card companies to the merchants whose terminal won’t be updated to read EMV chip credit cards. Although the card user still has the responsibility of checking to ensure no fraudulent activity is carried out on the card, they cannot be held responsible for more than $50 charged on the card fraudulently.

EMV chip credit cards that use PINs are universally accepted making it easy for Americans who possess

wqIf you know your résumé and cover letters are stellar and you perform well in employment interviews, yet you keep falling short of your goal to be hired in your chosen profession, your credit score/credit report could be holding you back. That is because employers view your credit score as a measurement of how well you fulfill all the financial promises that you made to lenders. It is a known fact that employers want employees with integrity, character and enough social skills that they will fit in well with the employer’s existing team. That is in addition to plenty of industry experience. You could also be held back by the results of a criminal background check, but normally you would know if that were the case.

The average credit score in the US is 705. An excellent credit is any score above 739. If your goal is to secure employment in a profession that pays well, you should be aware that every employment application that you fill out normally authorizes employers to check your employment history, references, background and credit report.

3It seems society’s viewpoint on the use of credit has changed from those of generations past. Back then people would obtain a line of credit or overdraft protection for emergency situations only. Credit was used for more big-ticket items like purchasing a home. When it came to buying products it was cash sales in the stores, and occasionally some merchants would accept checks from loyal customers. The world ran on currency, which meant price was king, not what the monthly payment would be. Here is why I believe using credit like additional income causes so many with financial devastation…

I need to mention that in these times salary and hourly wages doesn’t always meet the ability of survival. Credit becomes a catch 22 for those families because they can’t afford the basics. Using a credit card to buy groceries this week means they eat, however continually doing so with minimum payments and interest might not help down the road. The imbalance in the economy between pay and inflation has left the average family in a hundred-thousand dollars of debt. I think the idea of providing

2THE ANDROMEDA EFFECT

I’ve heard it and I know you have, pretty people always seem to get a break.

I want to believe the opposite is true, but sadly, ugly people are screwed out of some perks just for being, well, ugly.

THE SKINNY (NO PUN INTENDED)

EVERY experience I’ve had during a traffic stop, no matter my disposition, is tense and I’m approached as if the stop sign or turn signal I omitted meant something personal to the officer.

My omission is followed by a ticketing to warning ratio of several to none. Even after ticketing, I am remanded again, “watch your driving, ya hear?”

My girlfriend on the other hand, fits the Andromeda mold.

She seems immune to the ills of the ticketed masses.

In fact, these “confrontations” become more of a social delay, and result in the officer giving helpful tidbits, and a warning that almost seems care more about her safety from other driver’s careless habits.

Why the score matters

1Applying for a new credit card.

Most people think that when you have a new card, you can use it anyway and anywhere, but that may not be the case since all cards have limits depending on how you use it. A new credit card may have a lower score, but that is subjected to change with time.

Closing all past cards makes your credit history shorter, thereby influencing your score negatively.

Payment History.

Repayment of loans and debt must be satisfactory and timely. Missed payments may not be excused by the creditor or the lending bank, which then can be recorded on your credit file, and this can hinder so many things since it is usually on file for nearly seven years. Despite a clean slate, a small slip up can cause a lot.

Credit card balances.

Credit card balances vary on a monthly basis since the card is typically in use, frequently. The less the available balance is on the card, the greater the credit utilization.

Credit utilization= total amount of debt divided by the credit limit

Some individual have several credit cards with or without balances, closing the cards
