Have him look for a counselor accredited by the National Foundation for Credit Counseling. Here's their website: www.nfcc.org

Sounds like he needs to adjust his decision making if he really wants to avoid BK. That said, if, for example, he's got a bunch of medical bills from his wife's death, BK could help him get a fresh start.

If you know about any non profit or low cost credit counseling services, I'd let him know about that.



I wouldn't intrude on his financial privacy since he hasn't asked you to.


Financial counseling ---- better late than never.


Decisions for someone in such dire straights probably aren't something you should get involved with --- I would guess.

These sound like the actions of a good friend. But I wouldn't try to get involved in his problems or try to solve them for him.
