    Welcome to the new DebtMyths thread by StepChange Debt Charity (formerly Consumer Credit Counselling Service). We'll leave them to explain the idea but do let us know what you think...

    Hi everyone,

    Sometimes it can be very hard to get the truth about debt. At StepChange Debt Charity (formerly CCCS) we hear so many stories that clients have overheard down the pub, on the bus, or found on the web that are, to be frank, rubbish!

    So we’ve been asked by to help guide you through some of the myths that surround money and being in debt.

    Each weekday afternoon we’ll tweet a common debt myth on the MoneyAware Twitter channel (which by magic will also appear on the MSE Debt Problems page) and then debunk it on this forum thread. You’re very welcome to add your own thoughts, myths you’ve heard, or ask us questions.

    If you’d like to retweet us we’re using the hashtag #debtmyths on Twitter.
