October Filings Up

Total bankruptcy filings for October, 2009 were 130,200, up 3.7% from September, 2009 of 125,500; compared to 120,000 in August; 130,500 in July; 124,800 in June; 120,400 in May; 128,700 in April, 131,000 in March, 102,000 in February and 89,000 in January.

Total filings Jan through October, 2009; 1,211,300
Total filings Jan through October, 2008;   908,700
Total filings Jan through October, 2007;   687,000

I'm not sure this means things continue to get worse.  I am getting a lot of calls from people trying to hold off hoping to get a loan modification and slowly giving up.
