These assistance provide a platform for matching people who are looking for a place to live for a period of time with other people who have some sort of area available that they are ready to rent. Typically this area is a home, apartment or extra bedroom, but could be anything from a couch in a familiar area to a private island.

Hello, for two years I had $55,000 in debt, including $23,170 in credit card debt. My credit score was nothing to write home about. I managed to get most of my debt removed in bankruptcy and i was left with $9,000 car loan and $23,000 in student loans. Determined not to repeat my mistakes again I met Hacknet the credit specialist through a credit blog. He helped me clear all my debt and every negative item and also increased my score to an excellent score. I’m recommending Hacknet Credit Specialist for any person in need of credit repairs. Contact him through hacknet567@gmail.com/ (646) 450 2754.

Hacknet Credit Specialist is truly amazing. I have been trying for years to get rid of 2 bad accounts on my credit report. So I contacted him from a credit blog, he was able to get Capital One to completely delete their tradeline off all 3 of my reports. He did the same on my second account; and also cleans off my student loan of $54,000 and I got a high score of 795, he has been completely transparent and extremely communicative. Very affordable, I highly recommend him HACKNET567@GMAIL.COM +1 6464502754. Don't hesitate to get in touch with him for credit fix
