Simple debt advice - with no up-front costs

BBC Essex Drivetime with Dave Monk, 4.30pm 13/11/18

Tuesday, 13th November 2018

Mike ThomasMike Thomas was in the studio with Dave Monk just after 4.37pm to comment on the government research that suggests families are hiding as much as £96BN of debts from their loved ones.

Mike went through two case examples he has dealt with, first one was hidden debts of £30,000 on credit cards and the second case again credit card debts, of £55,000. Mike then explains the tell tale signs someone leaves behind when they have debt problems plus how easy it is for your partner to find out about your debts, no matter how much you try not to let slip.

Mike then gives ideas on how to approach your partner with a debt problem, get your timing right and offers some words to use as well as where to get that much needed debt help.

Dave asks Mike to comment on how easy it is for consumers to borrow money and is student debt going to be an ongoing problem.
