Building Wealth and Eliminating Debt

Critic’s Review

“Especially noteworthy is the chapter on youth consumer debt. “ The strategy is to catch and educate them early before they lock in bad debt behavior habits,” it also provides a debt-elimination strategy.
With the intensity of a motivational speaker, Carradine’s writing clearly conveys his passion for helping people get out of debt, avoid scams, save money and shows readers that they can improve their finances.
A list of helpful references is provided at the end.”

Feeling Suicidal: A Short Surreal Story About My Financial Problems

Book Description

This short story tries to be a satire on the madness of debt surrounding Western societies in the 21st century. It raises some thought-provoking issues about assisted suicide, income inequality and human stupidity. I must admit that it is a bit surreal, just as the world we live in is.

Feeling Suicidal — A Short Surreal Story About My Financial Problems

Dedicated to all the indebted people like myself who struggle to survive with minimum wage jobs.

“Buy a house! Go to college! Get a good job!” That freaking mantra still resounds in my mind to the point that I come to believe it is my true self. My reality is quite different though: I have about €90,000 in debt, no job, and a health issue that is limiting my ability to work.

All I wanted was an education (and a lovely little house) but now that I have a huge debt all I can say is that I should have known better… I’ve been brainwashed by the system.

It is really, really hard for me to accept that my personal life plan is over, certainly one of the biggest challenges I’ve faced in my life. I want to commit suicide because I can barely buy something to eat, which feels as if I’ve been denied dignity and self-respect.

I’ve asked for advice to a counselor, read dozens of self-help books, finance books, nothing works. No matter how I try to look at life with different eyes, it’s always the same thing. I can’t get out of that nagging spiral of negative thinking that says: I simply can’t manage to reduce my debt.

My debt will always be a constant struggle.

“Sharing your problems with others will help you,” my counselor suggests. “Why don’t you write an eBook?” OK. That’s what I’m doing right now, even though I am not sure whether or not it will be a good idea for you. I feel so uncomfortable at the emotional level where I am right now. My thoughts are those of a desperate man who’s already dead somehow. I am sorry if my speech is not consistent at times — this is a side effect of my medication.

Default

This is a novel for the early twenty first century set against the background of the global financial crisis of 2007-08 and the rise of extremist terrorism. During the global financial crisis, financial institutions were threatened, banks reduced lending, and finance was difficult to obtain. This is a story of an elaborate off-shore loan scam involving forged safe keeping receipts and diamond trafficking, and the impact it had on the lives of the Australian applicants for the loans. It is a story of loss and recovery, deception and retribution. It spans several countries as befits the global nature of the twenty first century. It is a story of our times.

Elder Abuse: reduced to NOTHING

Growing old should not make you a target, not only for thieves and scammers, but your friends and family. The author is 71 years old and lives in a Lake community where many of his new friends are older than he. In many of the conversations he has had with the elderly community, it became apparent that over 50% of them have been financially abused and mostly by friends and family.

This book addresses the ways in which the elderly are attacked mentally and emotionally mostly by their own kids and siblings. The end game is always to take the funds that the elderly have put aside to live on in their retirement. No elderly person should ever say “It won’t happen to me”, because more than 50% are being taken advantage of by several different schemes and most of the time, they don’t realize what a foolish mistake they have made until they find themselves in abject poverty.

This is a quick read, but each story should be considered and you should think each through before you find yourself in a similar situation. Think of this book as forewarning you so that you can be forearmed. You should never deal financially with family or friends, on an emotional basis. Your Grandchild’s tears can cause you to do things, which with hindsight seem not very bright.

I’ve told my friends that they should look upon loan requests as possible gifts, if they are not willing to lose contact with the relative asking, because today’s world is different then the one we grew up in – work ethic is pretty much dead and many young people have a feeling of entitlement that we never had as young adults. That entitlement to them means they get whatever they want without raising a sweat to get it.

You unfortunately must deal with a rise in crime – people trying to cheat you out what you worked hard to obtain and some who will kill you to get what you own. I have heard about more than one situation where the people felt their own children might consider murder as a quick way to inheritance. Planning ahead can save you from the misery that can be visited on you.

Finally, if you’re middle aged and approaching old age, you might want to plan how you can escape some of the problems discussed in this book.

The Top “Main Street” Mortgage and Real Estate Scams of the 21st Century

The Housing bubble that burst in 2008 has turned to out be one of the biggest Ponzi Schemes of all times. Combined with the greatest display of unmitigated greed and fraud on the planet this deadly combination almost resulted in the total collapse of the United States economy. Much has been written and documented about Wall Street, Big Banks and the Federal Government and their role in this debacle.

Much less attention has been paid to the perpetrators on Main Street. We are talking about the neighborhood Real Estate Agents, Loan Officers, Real Estate Appraisers, Investors and Home Owners. They too, had their part to play and contributed greatly to this near catastrophic event.

The Top Mortgage and Real Estate Scams of the 21st Century uncovers and brings to the forefront the Top Scams, Act of Greed, Fraud and Corruption used by those players on Main Street to defraud millions.

Credit Card Processing: Exposé: What every business owner should know to avoid costly pitfalls.

This book should satisfy all skeptics. It contains vast body of knowledge as well as practical advice to those merchants who have been defrauded, those who will be targeted soon, and to the rest, and so much more. Consumers can benefit as well. –Alex Nouri, Author

Many merchants are confused about the rates and fees associated with processing credit cards in their business. Many are defrauded by unscrupulous and fraudulent practices of sales representatives and the companies they represent.
That’s why Alex Nouri wrote Credit Card Processing: Exposé. As a sixteen-year veteran of the credit card payment processing industry, Mr. Nouri is well versed in how connivance, evasion, and even deceit by exploitative agents can victimize unsuspecting business owners. In his book, Alex Nouri exposes the underhanded chicanery business owners must watch out for. His book offers helpful guidelines to avoiding bad deals, making knowledgeable choices regarding credit card payment processing accounts, obtaining appropriate leasing information, and more. His guide for business owners includes tips on what to do if you believe your agent or processor has acted unethically, as well as advice to help navigate many precarious situations—such as chargebacks, cash advances, cancellations, and a lot more.
This book will educate merchants, consultants, CPAs, CFOs, lawmakers, law enforcement, and lawyers about the many practices in credit card processing industry. It empowers and puts the business owners on the driver’s seat.
Never-before released information on merchant cash advance, small equipment leasing, risk management, EMV (chip processing) and its flaws and poor execution, and more. It contains a clear road map on what to do to avoid issues and the steps to take if defrauded.

Commendations:

“Alex Nouri exposes many of the deceptive and unfair trade practices all too common in today’s credit and debit card payment industry. Business and organization managers will improve their profits by following the guidelines outlined in this book. Whether it is “tiered pricing” or “surcharges” or leases that cost $5,000 for use of a $500 piece of equipment or any of the other practices disclosed by Alex, these common practices cost the vast majority of small businesses thousands of dollars that should be going into their own pockets. Small businesses are treated by the courts as sophisticated operations with due diligence resources they simply do not have. Our laws need to be changed to protect small business people in the same manner that they protect consumers today from these unfair business practices. Merchants sign contracts of adhesion that are unconscionable but, incredibly, they are still valid in today’s courts.”

Robert O. Carr, CEO and Chairman
Heartland Payment Systems

“This book highlights the types of fraud that too many merchants are facing at the hands of unscrupulous processors and others in the credit card industry. For business owners, policy makers, and regulators, this volume is a trail of bread crumbs leading us to protect ourselves and the market for the benefit of business owners and consumers. A Must Read”

Jeff Irwin
Michigan House Representative
Three Terms 2011-2017

This is a well-written book, based on a significant body of research and long experience. It educates all parties involved, particularly merchants, in understanding how credit card processing works. The book identifies inefficiencies in the system and offers constructive ideas to improve it. It offers merchants advice on how to avoid costly mistakes and what to do should they have problems. Overall, an excellent and very useful guide.

SCAMMED AGAIN – IMPOSSIBLE – I KNOW TOO MUCH ABOUT SCAMS: How to Avoid Being Scammed

Scammers are intelligent, professional and well trained. They have no heart or compassion. They will take your last penny if they get the chance. They knowingly put your finances, trust, and even your family in jeopardy. Most scammers Work in Packs, like Wolves and are After YOU
What is a scam? A scam is when someone takes money from someone else while not providing the promised service or product. The programs are generally highly sophisticated, well planned and the principal person is versatile in responding to questions or problems that arise. Their trademark is the ability to think of a better lie to cover questioning of the original lie. The names they use are all fictitious but are worthwhile knowing so you can look them up on the internet. Unfortunately I destroyed my files a long time ago, so few names are provided.
Scams can be for small amounts of money or millions. They can be carried out by a single person, groups of people or even governments. We will look at the government scams later in the book. Whichever scam it is, YOU are the target.
In many cases, there are no jobs available for the potential scammer in their own country and they do not have the confidence and/or finances to look for jobs in other countries. Even highly trained and skilled people have problems finding jobs and those who find a job seldom get paid a living wage. Most scammers turn to this art out of desperation.

The Whiz Kid’s Scam Guide: For-Profit Colleges (Everest, ITT Tech, Ashworth): Meet the Traditional, Non-Traditional, and Community College Student

The student loan debt is over 1 trillion dollars because an increasing number of students are going to college in the hopes of later finding a good paying job. For this reason, students feel comfortable accepting loans thinking the return they will receive through employment will offset the debts. The rough economic conditions are proving otherwise because the number of students paying late on their loans is exceeding the number of students graduating from college. As evidence, the student loan default rates have doubled and there are not enough jobs for everyone. The price of tuition is increasing as the overall amount of financial aid is decreasing and student loans still cannot be eliminated with bankruptcy. The for-profit colleges have very expensive tuition compared to the non-profit colleges. They claim they can provide a high quality education to the non-traditional students who may struggle to academically succeed in a traditional college setting- But are for-profit colleges everything they make themselves out to be? Research shows 90% of the money made by for-profit colleges come from the financial aid granted to students by the government. The majority of students paying late on their loans are for-profit college students. Coincidentally, the majority of for-profit colleges have extremely low graduation rates. Half of the students who attend a for-profit college do not graduate with a degree or diploma but only with debt. A growing number of peculiar cases are developing with the for-profit college industry involving aggressive recruitment tactics, the creation of fake transcripts, creation of fake visas for students, instructors not having advanced degrees, fake accreditation, and how a dog was able to earn the MBA.

Game of Loans: The Rhetoric and Reality of Student Debt (The William G. Bowen Memorial Series in Higher Education)

College tuition and student debt levels have been rising at an alarming pace for at least two decades. These trends, coupled with an economy weakened by a major recession, have raised serious questions about whether we are headed for a major crisis, with borrowers defaulting on their loans in unprecedented numbers and taxpayers being forced to foot the bill. Game of Loans draws on new evidence to explain why such fears are misplaced–and how the popular myth of a looming crisis has obscured the real problems facing student lending in America.

Bringing needed clarity to an issue that concerns all of us, Beth Akers and Matthew Chingos cut through the sensationalism and misleading rhetoric to make the compelling case that college remains a good investment for most students. They show how, in fact, typical borrowers face affordable debt burdens, and argue that the truly serious cases of financial hardship portrayed in the media are less common than the popular narrative would have us believe. But there are more troubling problems with student loans that don’t receive the same attention. They include high rates of avoidable defaults by students who take on loans but don’t finish college–the riskiest segment of borrowers–and a dysfunctional market where competition among colleges drives tuition costs up instead of down.

Persuasive and compelling, Game of Loans moves beyond the emotionally charged and politicized talk surrounding student debt, and offers a set of sensible policy proposals that can solve the real problems in student lending.
