Where to turn for advice when a co-signer defaults on his house loan?

Where to send my wonderful neighbor who really, really needs help? My neighbor is one of the kindest, most amazing people I have ever had the pleasure to know. He just came to ask me for advice about a financial problem that he is now facing. He co-signed for a mortgage loan for his son-in-law a few years ago, and just found out that his son-in-law lost his house. A collection agency just called my neighbor at work and is demanding payment of $90K. Where can I send him for help? [more inside]

Bad Credit Mistake, Good Person

I have a question about resolving an issue with my credit that is keeping me from opening a new bank account. I was overdrawn at Washington Mutual in California. The amount is around seven hundred dollars. It went to a credit agency a while ago and now shows up on my credit report. I have moved to Pennsylvania and when I went to open a new bank account, surprise surprise was not allowed to. The bank employee told me that what I needed to do is call the credit company and tell them that I will pay the full amount, (which I want to do, and thankfully, can now), if I get them to agree to send a written confirmation that I have made good on my debt and that the matter has been resolved. He said that is the only way that I will ever get to open an account at any bank. A few weeks ago, I went through metafilter with a fine tooth comb to find advice on how to go about this, but didnt find the answers I need. [more inside]
