FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Starting Monday, March 3, Consolidated Credit is giving people the opportunity to slay their money sucking vamps in a Photoshop contest. Consolidated Credit introduced Hi-Rate and Hi-Pay, known as the Debt Suckers, in their new television and radio ad campaigns.
The gruesome two-some show people how easy it is to get over their heads in credit card debt when high interest rates and minimum payments are combined.
"The Debt Suckers have always played a major role in consumer financial troubles," says Howard Dvorkin, CPA, founder of Consolidated Credit and author of Power Up: Taking Charge of Your Financial Destiny. "The Debt Suckers Photoshop contest will help bring awareness to the growing debt problems people face every day and bring levity and comradery to what can be an overwhelming situation."
Contestants are asked to take basic images of Hi-Rate and Hi-Pay and overlay or incorporate them into other photography or illustrations using image or photo editing software. Participants can upload their Photoshopped Debt Sucker images to Consolidated Credit's Facebook page for a chance to win. The only rule is to have fun – although Consolidated Credit reserves the right to remove images that could be seen as malicious or offensive.
Winners will be chosen weekly based on which submissions receive the most Facebook likes and shares. Each winner will receive a Hi-Rate or Hi-Pay Stress Bat.
