Future hopes on a number of different levels are pinned on so-called green technologies: on one hand, they could help reduce the rapidly increasing global demand for energy, or even offer alternatives to finite resources like oil and coal; on the other hand, as highly committed politicians and young start-up entrepreneurs have long insisted, they could be a driving force behind the revival of our sputtering economy. In this spirit, Ars Electronica is staging a “Repair Fair” to spotlight a small selection of outstanding ideas, concepts and best-practice models that point the way to a brighter future. Visitors can take an up-close-and-personal look at green transportation when they take one of a whole fleet of electrical vehicles out for a spin on the E-Mobility Parcours. Additional informational material will be available on site and in the Infolounge.

If you knew how much you owed and who you owed it to, you may have been able to avoided bad debt entirely. The time has come to fix your credit score with a little positive crisis management. The tips in this article will help you repair a low credit score.

Make any records of any threats that a collector makes because it is highly illegal of them to do that. You need to know what the laws are that protect your rights as a consumer.

Contact the credit card company and ask to get your card limit lowered. Not only will this prevent you from owing more, but it will be reflected in your credit score because it shows that you are responsible with your credit.

Engage with the people trying to collect your debt and have open, honest communication. Establish a way forward with them to clear your debt. Be up-front with them about the amount you can apply to the debt, and tell them when you will have the money available. Remember that they will negotiate.

Look at your credit report and see if there are any missed payments or outstanding debts recorded. Ensure that your report is free of errors, and then you can start working on the other negatives. Pay off the highest interest debt first and completely, while staying current on the minimum payment of all other accounts.

Come up with a way to pay off any existing unpaid debts. These accounts will still appear on a credit report, but they will be earmarked as paid.

By paying off outstanding balances you will make the fastest progress towards repairing your credit. If you are not paying off your debt, your credit will take a hit.

Keeping an active savings or checking account at a local bank is a great way to begin repairing any credit damage. While your bank account does not show up on your credit score, you will come across lenders who want to see proof of income and budget management abilities that can be shown from a look at your bank history. Having checking and savings accounts without problems will improve your attractiveness to potential creditors.

If you are working to repair your credit pay down on your highest credit cards. A credit card balance that is scraping its limit is going to reflect poorly on your credit score, no matter if you are meeting its minimum repayment obligations.

Try to get a secured credit card if you are not eligible for an unsecured card. This will help you fix your credit. Most people are able to get this type of card, but you will have to load it up with a prepaid amount of money, as a guarantee that you can pay any charges that you make. If you open a credit card account, keep charges fairly low, and pay it on time, this will go towards improving your credit score.

Do not file for bankruptcy if you do not have to. Filing bankruptcy negative effects your credit score for 10 years. Although it seems like the wise thing to do at the time, it will bring you negative consequences in the long run. You may never get a line of credit for any purchases you might need to make if you go ahead, give up on repairing your credit and file for bankruptcy.

Check over your credit bill each month to make sure there are no errors. If there are late fees, you have to make sure that you take care of them immediately with the company so that they don’t send that information to the credit bureaus.

Fixing a bad financial situation requires common sense rather than monetary skills. If you follow this information, you can get to the ultimate goal.
