8:18 am
things that last a long time over the years on credit. for instance my first one is making late payments. making consistent late payments on your bills just shows that you cannot handle your bills. and that you are not financially responsibility. >> how can a potential creditor extend you credit if you are already showing you can't handle the bills you already have. >> right. what is the answer? a lot of these companies do automatic withdrawals. >> maybe. if you find yourself getting in trouble you need to talk with your creditor set up a more affordable payment plan, because they send out an automatic notice now in your bill stating this is the minimum amount you need to pay. instead of just missing it all together set up something more affordable. as long as you are paying something and working with your creditor it is better than nothing at all. >> carrying too much debt. >> to much debt. >> how do you evaluate, what is too much. >> if you are at the top end in all your credit card limits.
8:19 am
if everything is behind. if you look at your credit report every card is at the limit or has a balance, it looks like you are living on credit and that automatically is a red flag. >> also just saying i can't pay, defaulting on a creditor. >> can i not pay. >> that is the worst thing you can do. if a creditor has to write off the balance, if they just have to say you know what we are not going to get any money out of this debtor that is the worst thing you can do and that sends a red flag. you will not get any other credit extended to you. >> is there a way, can i pay this $2,500 balance can i pay $700 can you try to work with them. >> you can try to work a settlement especially if this has been going on a very long time. it is better to work something out than leave it on the books as unpaid. >> this is harder tax liens or judgments. >> this happens when you default with a creditor or irs. the tax lien comes up not
8:20 am
paying your taxes that is really bad and stays on your credit for 10 all right. >> judgments it is bad because basically you are showing people have to take you to court, to get money that is owed to them. there is no way, it will be very difficult for you to get credit after that. >> some people say bankruptcy is a way out to rebuild. you list it as a credit kill hear is the real story. >> -- killer, what is the real story. >> some people see it as a refresh button. especially if you have not had a job for a long time, going through divorce. be cautious it is not a fix all, not a cure all it is a blemish it stays on your record for 10 years it shows you walked away from a large amount of debt. you have several creditors unpaid. you are going to have to rebuild that trust. it will take 3 to 5 years for creditors to start looking into
8:21 am
potentially again. >> know the real deal. >> exactly. >> financial analyst and author and friend of the show thanks for the great advice. tony over to you. >> good stuff thank you much. 8:21 a.m., straight ahead on fox 5 another disturbing act of violence in mexico, but is it having any impact on tourism. mystery at the vatican, officials are looking for new clues in a decades old case. later this hour, holly is throwing jabs and upper cuts learning all about how you can box your way, to fitness. fox 5 morning news will be right back ( telephone rings )

8:34 am
tickets given to kwame brown. and how they are distributed every spring we get these stories. how big of a deal are either of these stories. >> to the average person they just sort of wonder why do they get these in the first place. every year, last several years, squabbling on dc council who gets what tickets to what sports events. city has suites to both verizon center and nationals park, they got them as part of the deal to finance the funding of the stadium, and you know, just every year, it become as problem or a question about why do you get tickets, why do you get to go to these games for free. now it is migrated into concerts. one thing a lot of people think okay you can go to a nationals game or wizards but now it is reported they get to see these concerts that often these tickets are hundreds of dollars, they have a suite of 0 or so, -- of 20 or so seats and
8:35 am
now it is reported last week, that the mayors are giving some of these tickets, the best tickets to concerts to his son and daughter. >> his argument is well, my -- his daughter is technically the first lady of the district because mayor grey's wife is deceased, so his argument is well, they are ambassadors to the city. is that a fair argument. >> it is a fair argument they do serve that role. i think the question becomes, are these tickets, when they get them are they using them to sort of take others to see the games, as a role in an official capacity or being used for personal, you know, privilege, to watch the games and that becomes a perk. why should they have these tickets when the average person doesn't have access >> as you pointed out it is part of the deal, for both verizon center and nationals park that they get the tickets. you know, is it -- it is a perk, but some jobs do come with perks. >> some jobs do come with perks. and a lot of council members
8:36 am
will says the not a perk they get the tickets and then they give it to you foe boy scout troops or girl scouts, needy children and a lot do use the tickets for that purpose. a lot of ethics people, or ethical people who were worried about ethics would question whether it is a perk council reserves especially when they are under scrutiny how they are using other parts of the government. >> is the other issue, with the tickets, kwame brown -- council have a bunch of seats they have a suite and individual seats or pairs of seats around the stadium. kwame brown decides who gets what for any given game and that type of thing. are the questions about how he is distributing them whether he is doing that fairly. >> yes, second year in a row some questions have been raised among members, privately, no one wants to go on the record, attacking kwame brown because he is chairman but there are questions whether he is fairly dividing up the tickets is he
8:37 am
playing favorites. there was a question about members who were they rewarded for voting a certain way getting certain tickets. he strongly denies that and says he is trying to be as fair as possible there is just not enough seats, inside the box some have to sit on the field. just the fact they are fighting about this, it raises it to members of the public seems childish. you get the tickets for free why do you have to raise questions how they are distributed. >> your story about the tickets with council, phil mendhelson was quoted saying i have other things to worry about. kwame brown does say he hands them out, you know, retates around and all that -- rotates around and all that stuff. mayor grey, points out that a number of their tickets do go to constituents and other groups you talk about and he says, companies they want to do business with the district and all of that. that is a fair use of tickets. >> that is fair use of tickets but gets back to the question
8:38 am
of, is it worth the hassle that is created in the image of these tickets every year, now for the last three and a half years, four years in a row there has been controversy. the and question becomes, do they really want to move beyond that, to keep them or keep this going on ar. last year, there was an effort to sell the boxes raise money for the city. get rid of the image problem, but they quickly concluded they could not sell something they don't own because they are a gift from the washington nationals they cannot sell and make a profit off something they were given for free. >> we will continue to hear more about it. tim craig, dc politics reporter with washington post thanks for coming in. we will be back with more in a moment i should be arrested for crimes against potted plant-kind.
