A promissory note is a written promise to pay a specific amount of money at a specified date. Promissory notes are typically issued by borrowers and used as evidence of debt owed, or by lenders as security for repayment. They provide the holder with legal claims on the borrower for nonpayment, which can be enforced in court. Additionally, they are often used as collateral for loans to further secure repayment should the noteholder default on his or her payments.

While promissory notes have been around since ancient times, modern promissory notes have some important differences from their historical counterparts that make them especially useful tools in today’s financial markets. For example, while historically they were mainly used among private individuals, now governments and businesses use them to borrow money as well. Additionally, they are now often available in the form of electronic promissory notes, which can be securely and easily transferred without the need for a physical piece of paper. Finally, modern promissory notes typically have much stricter terms and conditions than their historical counterparts.

Overall, while promissory notes may seem like a relatively simple financial instrument on the surface, they play an important role in countless financial transactions today, and are likely to continue to do so in the future. For this reason alone it is essential that all individuals who engage in these types of transactions understand what a promissory note is and how to use one properly. With this knowledge under your belt, you’ll be able to make informed decisions when it comes to managing your finances and taking advantage of the financial opportunities that promissory notes have to offer.​ For more information on how to manage your finances, talk to an Americor professional today.

We provide debt resolution services. Our clients who make all monthly program payments save approximately 40 – 50% of their enrolled debt (average of 43%) upon successful program completion, before program fees. Fees are based on a percentage of your enrolled debt at the time of starting the program and range from 15%-25% of your enrolled debt. Programs range from 20-48 months. Clients must save at least 25% of each debt due to an enrolled creditor before a bona fide settlement offer will be made. On average, clients receive their first settlement within 4-7 months of enrollment and approximately every 3-6 months thereafter from when the prior debt was settled. Not all Clients complete the program. Estimates are based on prior results and may not match your results. We cannot guarantee that your debts will be resolved for a specific amount or percentage or within a specific timeframe. We do not assume your debts, make monthly payments to creditors or provide tax, bankruptcy, accounting, legal advice or credit repair services. Our program is not available in all states; fees may vary by state. Some programs may be offered through The Law Firm of Higbee & Associates d/b/a Advantage Law. The use of debt resolution services will likely adversely affect your credit. You may be subject to collections or lawsuits by creditors or collectors. Your outstanding debt may increase from the accrual of fees and interest. Any amount of debt forgiven by your creditors may be subject to income tax. Clients may withdraw from the program at any time without penalty and receive all funds from their dedicated account, other than funds earned by the company or fees paid to third-party service providers, as may be applicable. Read and understand all program materials prior to enrolling. Certain types of debts are not eligible for enrollment. Some creditors are not eligible for enrollment because they do not negotiate with debt relief companies. To determine the offers you may be eligible for, Americor conducts a “soft credit pull.” This credit pull does not impact your credit score, creditworthiness, or ability to obtain credit from other sources. The soft pull is not a tradeline entry, it does not report against your score and will only take a few minutes.
