Should I voluntarily file for bankruptcy or should I wat for a creditor to di it?

I found out that I can voluntarily file for bankruptcy if I incur a debt of S$15,000 or more and I can;t immediately pay for it but I've also discovered that creditors can also file me for bankruptcy as well. Would it be wiser to let my creditors file for my bankruptcy so I won;t have to go through the troube of filing one for myself or should I just voluntarily file for it myself?

    No Name

    It would be better if you to self-declare bankruptcy yourself instead of waiting for creditors to sue you because the interesst on your debt might continue to increase while you are waiting. It doesn;t matter who files for bankruptcy because the cost of bankruptcy application deposit will likely be borne by you as the debtor.

    CardUp charges you a transaction fee for each payment made.

    CardUp / CardUp

    Every transaction you complete using CardUp will incur a 2.6% transaction fee. This can actually add up over time, especially if you’re relying heavily on CardUp. That being said, if your card offers cash rebates or frequent flyer miles, you may easily be able to offset the transaction fee. CardUp works by being a middleman in your transactions. Instead of directly transferring funds from your account to a vendor, you pay CardUp via credit card. CardUp will then transfer the funds to your designated vendor.

You’ll then be asked to enter your password. Do that, and you’ll see a reddish-orange “transfer” icon appears.The recipient will see this in their WeChat app, and will then have to accept the transfer. Once they do, they will receive it.

    Terrible customer service in Singapore.

    PayPal / PayPal

    This folks have a terrible customer service in Singapore. If you have a problem, then good luck trying to contact them. I requested for refund and stop any payment to a certain company because I did not receive the ordered items and there was no delivery schedule or whatsoever. The reply was really classic, "Thank you for reporting this case, after reviewing your case, we found that this transaction was not unauthorized and hence couldn't be covered under PayPal Purchase Protection" and just like that the case was closed.
