Trying to downplay it makes it even worse. Responsible people would pay what they could until the debt was paid off.

At the time I was young, dumb, and had no income. Now I am a responsible adult with a AMEX card which I had since 2006 and never exceeded the limit. It's a big difference between 18 and 36 when it comes to managing money. I can't change the past but can live differently now that I'm older and know to learn from my mistakes at 18 years old.

BTW: I was tricked into signing up for the card with a bag of candy because they knew a 18 year old with a credit card was a wonderful combination for them to make money.

Perhaps with the money you use to buy 'gift cards' for the women who come over to walk barefoot on your back and get their toes sucked?

When Capital One tracks you down and takes you to court, please let me know. I'd be prepared to make the very long trip to your city just to sit in the public gallery and listen to your excuses for not having paid your debt.

We are talking about $10,000 and i did not spend that much on pay for play.

BTW: I don't suck toes

Capital One is taking over ING? Really? Wow.... I wonder if I should open an ING account now to keep the current terms, will they change the terms of the bank account after the takeover? Should I wait and see what they do? Hmm...

Apparently not, as responsible adults pay their debts.

Yeah if I hit the lottery but where am I going to get $10,000 from? And even if I did hit the lottery for $10,000 I wouldn't pay the debt because I'm unemployed and need the money to be in my savings. So I would need to hit the lottery for $30,000 LOL
