WITH nearly half of all credit active South Africans falling behind on their finance repayments there are numerous signs you are over indebted.

While many of the 9.9million over- indebted South Africans are in denial about their situation the following are six signs that you need assistance:

You hide things you have bought from your family or partner.

You owe friends and family money – and you’re avoiding them because of it.

You lie awake about your finances, but you can’t seem to stop spending, as going shopping makes you feel good for a short while.

You are using one credit card to pay the minimum amount on another one and regularly have these limits increased;

You find yourself month after month taking out short-term payday loans and you’re not telling anyone.

You borrow from one friend to pay another one back.

If any of these situations apply to you then contact one of the friendly consultants at National Debt Counsellors to see how they can assist you by reducing your monthly repayments.

A debt counsellor is able to provide immediate relief to you and stop those annoying phones calls from debt collectors pestering you for payment.
