When a debt isn’t paid on time, it can become much more expensive, especially once the late or over-the-limit fees are tacked on. Then, especially in regards to credit cards, after a payment is missed, the lender may raise the APR rates. None of this bodes well for the consumer as it makes an already difficult situation that much harder to deal with.
