This is some kind of scam here.Never let others use your credit card here, you are liable for the debt or any misuse. Just say no your friend needs to find someone else or some way to finance his enterprise.You don't want any part of this, it is something that is likely to go bad and leave you stuck with credit card debt and nothing to show for it.Just say no here you don't lend your credit card to anyone.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
