    A big thanks to everyone that has posted on here, although i dont post so much i have read thousands of helpful, interesting and inspiring posts on here over the years.

    After suffering for years with debt and defaults after naively ignoring creditors demands in my younger days, my day has come. My last default was on the 15th of august 2006, i have waited six years and TODAY is my day.

    Thanks to the people that advised on getting the sub primary cards in the meantime and using them well, this does work 100%

    Thanks to the people with advice on who and how to pay off, not ignore.

    Thanks to the people that advised changing banks, this also helps.

    Thanks to the people that have been in the same boat and helped keep chins up without realising it.

    So all in all thanks, thanks and thanks.

    And most importantly, to the people that are in the situation i have been in....

    Congratulations for hanging in there, we are at the start of our journey but fingers cross all going well so far.

    I read this forum every day and without it I would never have found the strength to make that first step.

    Thanks for inspiring us all.
