I choose E none of the above
these emails are SCAMS
sadly many will fall for these because they are swimming in debt and looking for a way out
all these SCAMS do is PREY on their victims making a financial situation far worse
even if there was such a thing as a "bail out" think about this - if you took a "bail out" option you have STOLEN all of the services and products you purchased
in today's society everyone is looking to LIVE LARGE and then BLAME marketing advertising even their neighbors for "making them" purchase and consume things they cannot afford without credit

none, I wouldn't have credit card debt.
I don't mean to come off prideful and please forgive me if I do, it's just that I have been paying my credit cards off each month.
If I don't have the money to buy something, then I don't buy it. I waited two extra months to replace my battery on my car because I didn't have the money. If it went dead before that time, then I guess I would have borrowed the money from someone who doesn't charge 18% interest.
Again, my apologies if I've come off sounding prideful, don't mean to.

KarenD ... In the UK, if you pay off the whole amount on the due date ... typically several weeks after the issue of the statement showing the purchaesd for the last month ... you don't pay any interest.
I do all my purchases by credit card, and pay off the card, on average six weeks after the purchase date, and don't pay any interest.

alan...As far as I know, the only credit card that doesn't charge interest if you pay the balance when due is American Express. In the USA all others charge interest.

E: None of the above.

"which would you open why?" Neither.
They would simply to serve as a reminder that I have created the debt and that it is my responsibility to pay off that debt.
No constructive lesson is learned from a "bail out."
However character and fortitude is shown, and a sense of accomplishment is derived from facing a challenge head long and overcoming it.

None ... You can't bail out of a credit card debt, so I would know it was just an ad
Always pay you credit card bill when it is due, you won't have to pay interest, and you won't get into impossible debt

Why, do you own a debt relief type of company and you are looking at advertising?
---Alan on 6/12/10|
None. I would start paying off those credit cards as soon as possible. Been there, done that. Out of debt now.
