    So here’s what’s up:

    1. To Tenants: If the government says you don’t have to pay your rent and there’s a ban on evictions, you better do whatever you can to pay your rent. There will be major repercussions when eviction bans are lifted. Don’t think you’ll get a free ride out of this. PAY YOUR RENT! Your landlord has bills to pay too.

    2. To Homeowners: If the government tells banks to stop mortgage payments, DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO PAY YOUR MORTGAGE!. Some lenders are saying you don’t have to pay for 3 months but on the 4th month, all four payments are due in full. Do not take a chance and not pay. Major foreclosures will come from all this. The banks didn’t help homeowners in 2008-09 and in 2020, it’s still the same. Pay your mortgage.

    3. If the utility company suspends payments, you.better. PAY. ANY. AMOUNT. YOU . CAN! They are like banks, they will want their money eventually and when all this clears up, you’ll owe an exorbitant bill and still won’t have any utilities. Pay whatever you can.

    4. If you get a government relief check, this check is to help pay your bills. That means you pay your rent, your mortgage, your utilities, your insurance, your car payment, y.o.u.r. b.i.l.l.s. This is not for frivolous spending.

    5. The real problem is, many who will get the stimulus check....you won’t pay your bills then be crying and wailing saying “They evicted me. They cut off my power, they repossessed my car...”
    All while you’re broke and carrying that empty purse you bought with your stimulus check.

    Great advise!

    All of that will happen because banks, renters, utilities all have bills to pay too.

    Hopefully people wont be mislead to think its a free for all-freebie! Its not!

    I just got off the phone with Xfinity Comcast service for our beachhouse since we'll miss a couple of winter weekends coming up.

    My cable TV co offered a delayed payment plan - I said No Thank you.
    They were clear to emphasize it was a delay in payments not forgiveness of payments.

    They also mentioned due to the Corona virus they are waiving contract cancellation fees for second homes and properties that people might not be able to get to.

    I downgraded Xfinity Comcast internet -TV service from $125/mo to $ 40/mo even though I had a two year contract agreement for premium service.

    If you have a second home and want to pay less for stuff call your service providers.

    Thanks so much. One question. Does my monthly "chickenchoker.com" payment count as a legitimate bill?

    So are you saying with all this extra time on peoples hands there has been an uptick in subscriptions to sites like that and "YankMyDoodleIt'sADandy.com" ?

    I guess you don't want to be in "arrears".

    I would think that if mortgage payments are delayed, then the lender would just add on those months to the life of your loan, instead of asking for it all at once, which would be a sure fire recipe for people defaulting.

    Yeah it's not practical to ask someone who may just be going back to work to pop up a 3 to 10 grand check imo.
    If you can do that you probably aren't behind.

    That can’t be true. After all, I found this on Facebook so it must be true.

    I really don’t know what they’ll do but the points are legitimate in concept. Don’t expect to slide by without making up for missed payments. Pay something to show good faith.

    The banks might add the accrued interest to principle balance, too.

    LOL. You still ain't right.

    Well, the Queen parody video did encourage that stuff. At least that's what the dude who broke in and posted from my computer told me....er... Wrote in the note he left.

    I have no clue why this post was put in this thread other than trolling.

    You mean the one from the satire site. Makes as much sense as your post.
