Recently I had a good friend call me for some financial advice about credit card debt. I’m not going to try and claim that I’m a certified financial planner, but I’m not afraid to offer my financial opinion. My friend has run into a situation that has become very common place among many Americans, mounting credit card bills. He was specifically wondering if there was an easy way to lower his interest rate and begin paying down the balance after his bank didn’t have any solutions. I suggested taking a friendly approach to financing and brought up peer-to-peer lending.
