While there are many healthy ways to eliminate debt, there are also many unhealthy ways to do so. Engaging in certain debt reduction activities can actually damage your finances further. Such activities include, but are not limited to:

  2. 2) Borrowing money from family and friends
  3. 3) Taking out cash advances on credit cards
  4. 4) Writing bad checks
  5. 5) Mistakenly selling assets protected from creditors
  6. 6) Engaging in fraudulent/illegal activity
  7. 7) Liquidating retirement accounts to make bill payments
