The client who came to us via a referral agency has been struggling with credit card debt over the last year. She has been paying it off gradually and is now down to the last few hundred pounds. Certain interest rates have just gone up with her cards meaning that there is a chance she may only be paying the interest even though she has been reducing it each month.
